Bow season is over and it is now time to get the shop done. My next step was to close up the two windows with sheet insulation and then cover them with 1/2 inch exterior and interior plywood. My main concern is to keep the noise in and the heat and cold out. If someone else wants the windows back someday, they can open them back up. I will paint them in the spring.
Before I could insulate and cover the back wall, I had to put in 2 X 10 supports for the dust cyclone.
Once that was done, the back wall was covered with rolled insulation and 3/8 plywood. I am planning on making this a clamp wall.
The other three walls of the shop and the ceiling were filled with blown in insulation because the sheet rock was already in place. When I was cleaning up, I noticed a picture on the bag showing a pretty little girl filling the hopper of the blower. Notice the happy smiling girl. Gee, it looks like so much fun and what a clean job it must be! What is wrong with this picture?
Could that picture be false advertising? This is an old man, NOT having so much fun, NOT smiling, dirty, with an R-30 rating in his shorts and everywhere else!!
I plan to put plywood wainscoting on the bottom half of the shop walls and then start the installation of the cyclone and duct work.
