Insulation Work Started

I've started installing the insulation in the bedroom ceiling and walls.  I'm using R20 fiberglass batts that are approximately 6" thick. 

The walls will get one layer, and the ceilings will get 2 layers.  That'll give me an insulation value of R40 in the ceilings.  The building code only calls for R28 in ceilings, but most new construction and remodel jobs have R40 or higher.
