HGTV show talks Soybean foam insulation

Bio Foam InsulationI’ve mentioned the HGTV program Living With Ed a couple of times before (2006 & 2007 links) and enjoy the humorous way the host Ed Begley and his wife Rachelle discuss ‘greening’ our homes. From the simple process in replacement of incandescent light bulbs with compact florescent bulbs to adding off the grid solar power, the program has interesting ideas for all of us.

This week, Ed visited with Sharon Lawrence at her 1950s mountain home that is being updated with a soybean based ‘bio’ foam insulation. The spray on foam looks to be an appropriate replacement for petroleum based foams, but I’m still not sure I’m comfortable with trapping moisture against wood surfaces? (clip no longer available)
