Cool tour. Thanks for taking the time to post. It’s a nice extra way to keep a backup list for the insurance like you said.

did you install the insulation on the garage doors? wondering if it made a noticable difference

Yes, and yes, it made a huge difference. I believe the stuff was called R-Max plus 5 or something like that. I got it at Lowes… It is bonded to the doors and to each other using Liquid Nails for Projects…

Great tour.

Does the insulation on the door also reduce the noise outside?

I have been looking to reduce the noise that escapes my garage. Especially the router.

To a large extent yes. I used to be able to hear my wife’s car pull in to the driveway, now I don’t know she’s home until I hear the front door…

great tour. It is nice to finally see your shop. Maybe I’ll have to do something similar soon. It was also nice to finally get a face with the name…I was half expecting a pair of talking planes to do the tour :)

Great tour, David, got through the second half just now. I would buy a video camera, but it is just another thing to learn, and there are too many things on the table just now. What I ought to do is buy one while I am on vacation, and learn to use it now. But, it probably won’t happen.

Again, thanks for the tour…............

Thank you for this video tour. I got a lot of good ideas from your storage solution for bench-top tools in part one of the tour.
