    Maybe I'm wording it incorrectly. In the front of our house (cape) there is a knee wall. There are a couple doors for access to the front for storage. There were pine planks nailed to the floor joists. Cut them all out with a sawzall since there was no insulation. Put some R-30 in there and that took all day (it was tight!!).
