this is great for those walls that aren't finished. What do you recommend for finished walls?

Great advice for new construction. But my house is 50 years old and I'm not about to tear down all those real plaster walls!
How about some detailed info about insulation blown in through small(ish) holes?
Thanks, LS

When it comes to using spray foam insulation - even the "low expansion" stuff - be careful! Most door and window warranties will be void if you use any spray foam around them. I install windows and doors for a living - that's what the warranty says, and they will hold you to it! Just use loose fiberglass insulation tucked gently (not stuffed) around the windows. A shim works great for tucking the insulation in. Also, caulk around the outside (and the inside if you're dealing with a pocket replacement window.

Will be trying this soon when we get the framing up in our basement!
