« Part 2: Started Expansion of the Shed Part 3 of A Small Woodworking Shop Expansion series Part 4: Putting XPS Ridgid Insulation Between Floor Joists »

Well I worked about 12 hours Saturday and got some of the hangers and floor joists in. I took a break Sunday (football day) and Monday, I was sore :), needed to step back. So today I finished nailing the joists to the hangers and started planning out how I was going to install the ridgid foam in the the joist bays. Originally I was just going to fill the cavity with rigid foam all the way up. I decided this was probably not necessary and a little costly.

So I bought some 1 by lumber and built billets on the inside of the joists to set the 2 inch insulation board on. I will use adhesive and lay the board on the billets. Any gaps I will fill with Great Stuff.

After running out to the Home Center and getting set up and figuring out exactly the best way to install, I only got billets put into 3 bays. Now that I have a method I should be able to get the other bays done tomorrow,hopefully the insulation laid in , and at least start putting the plywood floor down.

Note: It has taken me much longer than I anticipated to reach this point in the expansion but the weather is holding and I just need to start earlier in the day I guess.I usually stop working on it after it gets dark. I really don’t like to work too late and disturb the neighbors. But I’m itching to start framing the walls.
