Question: how to insulate walls without removing the sheetrock?


Question by : how to insulate walls without removing the sheetrock?
We live in a geodesic (dome) home. We need to re-insulate the home. Any ideas without having to replace/remove all of the sheetrock. The interior walls are sheetrock triangles bordered by strips of wood and where the triangles meet there is a round piece of wood to complete the look/cover the space the wood and sheetrock could not.

    Can’t believe you would have to re-insulate a geodesic home. The problem is, Blown in insulation is about the only way I know of for insulating sealed cavities. (On the inside anyways) But, because of the structure you have boards running every which way which creates the problem of knowing where to drill the holes to maximize the effectiveness. Since it’s not standard vertical walls I’m afraid it’s gonna be damn near impossible without removing panels. Sorry!
    Hoping someone else has a solution for you.
