If you order the extra insulation option what exactly are you getting above and beyond the standard build?
My understanding is that the basic insulation is the visible liner which has a small R Value. This liner does not cover 100% of the wall areas, mostly just what is visible.
The extra insulation is the reflective insulation that is added to all the wall areas along with the standard visible liner and the double pane windows.
So some areas have two layers of insulation and others only have one layer being the reflective insulation.
As others noted, the floor is not insulated unless you get the foam underneath.
Hope this makes sense?
