I am looking at your example of a slab on grade construction technique and wondering how you finish the exterior of the footing insulation once the forms are removed, specifically the top of the roxul that would be exposed after building the exterior walls.
I want to insulate the outside of my house and I'd like to know which type of insulation you think is best.
