« Part 10: The roof Part 11 of Workshop Build series Part 12: Starting to paint, the woodsheds built, soffit and fascia »

At this point, the building was up, it was winter (Nov. 2008) and time to insulate. Batts were placed in the attic walls between the studs at the end walls. Also we placed insulation between the ceiling joists, leaving an airspace at the top.

Over Christmas there was a big wind storm that knocked down some trees. This one was beside the new garage and fell away from it, most likely because some of the roots were cut while clearing the space for the foundation:

Here’s a view of the east side wall of my workshop before it was insulated:

By the spring of 2009 we were back to working in the shop putting OSB on the walls. Here it is on the back wall, the garage side, and you can see through the middle wall to my workshop side:

The car is in the garage and OSB is being put on the middle dividing wall:

This is the front of my workshop, you can see the front door and window and the electrical panel in the corner:

Excuse the mess, but here’s the stairs at the back of my workshop:

The area looks so big, and bright that it’s exciting to see everything coming together! be continued…

I wait on each installment and remind myself that if I ever build another shop I have everything done by a contractor, I couldn’t stand the suspense.
