I have a 1904 3 story brick Tudor, slate roof nailed to 1x6's. My 3rd floor is a finished hall going to a finished room and an open attic space. I have no soffit vents. The floor in the unfinished area is 1x4 boards with a 3\16" space between each board. I can pull up some of the boards and feed r30 fiberglass under the boards and leave the attic as a cold space or I can insulate the rafters bays using channels and r15 fiberglass. Right now I have single pane windows but I'm planning on installing storms in the spring. I'm in the nyc area. Any thoughts on which method would be better?
