Insulating a Roof Between Rafters

I just purchased a home in a cold climate area. In the attic, some portions of the roof have insulation, some of it is missing. I want to replace the missing insulation between the rafters. The existing insulation is foil-backed, not kraft-backed. All kraft-backed insulation states that it must be covered. I am assuming that is why they used foil-backed. I have not been able to find foil-backed insulation and I am not going to sheetrock the roof. What do I use?

Rain Barrel Use for Desert Landscaping

Here in Reno, Nevada, we get under 7" of rain per year. Can we collect enough rain water in a rain barrel or barrels to make a dent in the average 136,000 gallons per year that a metered user like our household uses? Admittedly about 70 per cent of the yard is lawn--around 3000 square feet of it.

Why Doesn't the Wall I'm Painting Look Like the Chip Color I Selected?

I'm painting accent walls in three or four rooms in my Reno, NV, home. The paint chip had the perfect color, but it looks lighter and slightly redder on the wall. I can't return the paint for this first room, but how can I do better when painting the other rooms?
