Neil, I'm glad you brought this up, because I really need one of these for our bedroom. Our heating bills are way too high. Our bedroom is over the garage and the floor is uninsulated, making the bedroom the coldest room in the house by a good 10 degrees on a cold night.
Kathy, insulating the ceiling of a garage isn't too difficult if you have a ladder, maybe a few 2x6 pieces of lumber, staple gun, and a few rolls of insulation. For a typical, two bay garage, the cost should be under $200. If the garage ceiling has studs, you should be able to do the job with just a staple gun.
Oh yeah, this is something we definitely have planned, but my husband has the expertise, so he kind of needs to take the lead on this project. Unfortunately, he works really long hours and we just haven't conjured up the time yet. It is an old house with many such projects, and they are getting done slowly.
