I am replacing the sheetrock in my home and also the insulation. The house originally had a flat roof (gabled roof was added later) so the insulation will go between the sheetrock and the flat roof. Several questions related to this: 1) What recommendations for the type of insulation to use? I'm thinking for the walls I will be using cotton insulation but is that the best option for the ceiling as well? 2) What is the best method to hold the insulation in place before the sheetrock covers it? Thanks!

While I know plenty of people that recommend / install fiberglass or cellulose I would actually lean towards to spraying closed cell foam directly against the sheathing - at least...
