6 inch joist, so what's the R rating with loose blown in insulation? 15? a 4.5 in sheet of rigid is an r-30

I am sure your lava rock absorbs the heat, rather than reflecting it. might want to change rock color to something lighter.

on days that it's gets over 100 here, about 82 inside, I find a regular floor fan moving air sideways works OK. this summer, I used it twice. back in the closet it goes. nothing to look at and collect dust for the other 363 days of the year.

In the desert, the fans really help out to cool a space down, especially at night. Although I don't like the look of a ceiling fan, I've used them often in my mid-century remodels. I've learned the fewer the blades, like three, the better circulation you get.

The less ornate, the better I typically will use a basic design and have use http://ylighting.com/cirrushugger.html often. Design critics seem to hate them, but when you live in an area with high heat, you figure out quickly their benefits.
