Insulating basement walls

Worked in the basement a lot this past weekend. Probably should have taken more pictures, but below is a before and after of a wall I added insulation to - all by myself thank you very much! (Don't be too impressed, it's actually quite easy.)

Before. This wall is in the utility room, but there's a bedroom on the other side - hence the insulation.

It's as easy as measuring, cutting to size, and then using a staple gun to make it stay put. Staple to the studs, not the drywall on the other side!

The worst part is trying to keep the fiberglass off of you. Wear protective clothing, gloves, a mask, and safety goggles!
