« Part 4: Floor Joists and 1-1/8" Sturdy Floor installed today, May 24, 2007 Part 5 of The Saw Horse Workshop - A New Begining series Part 6: In the Dry!!! »

Went back by the new shop this afternoon, May 25, 2007 and low and behold….WALLS!!! The walls are 10’ in height.

This view is the front of the shop at a slight angle, you can just see in the left corner where my office will be (man door and window) and the other opening is where the sliding 8' door will be.

This pic is of one of the sides, again you can see the office in the right hand corner, the opening in the middle is where a window will be located, there will be an identical window set in the opposite wall on the other side of the shop.

You sound more excited about that office space than the rest of the shop, Sawhorse. It is really coming together, quickly. What is going to be on the outside? Inside(sheetrock)? I’m happy for you because I went through the same joy about six to eight months ago.

Just pointing out the openings and the interior walls in case anyone was wondering Oscorner…..I’ll wrap the outside once with 5/8” OSB and cover that with 4×8 sheets of pine siding, and then I’ll prime and paint it. The inside will have mostly OSB, but some slat wall as I have about 6 or 7 sheets of slat wall I got out of a Mervyn’s Dept. store when it closed.

Sawhorse, I wrapped mine with Tyvex and insulated the wall to R13 and the ceiling to R19. I can keep it toasty with a 16,000 BTU propane heater set on the second setting(I don’t know how many BTU’s that is) and maintain 55 degrees on the lowest setting with the outside temps in the upper 20’s. When deciding whether or not to insulate, I found out that it was only a $250 difference in price, so I insulated and am sure glad that I did. Thanks for the updates!

I agree with Os, My building has 6 X 6 posts with 2 X 6 between the posts with a 2 X 4 on the outside. The cavity has insulation stuffed in there. I don’t know how much. and it has r19 in the ceilings.

Today it was 64 deg in the building and it was 84 outside. The building is comfortable year around. I’ve got a ceiling space heater that gets it warm in the winter. I set the thermostat at 62 deg when I’m in the shop. When I’m out I turn it off. I’ve never seen it below 40 in the winter. usually in the 50’s if I I’m the shop every day.

I’ve got a 24,000 air conditioner for the summer.

Insulation is a good investment, the more the better.

Insulate, and you will be able to spend more time in the shop all year round. Cooler in the summer, warmer in the winter. Besides the temperature for finishing, it has to be comfortable enough to work in.
