My shops circle top window and door were a challenge. I solved the problem by dividing them into octaganal sections of eastern white pine joined with 1 inch x 4 inch hardwood splines and Gorilla glue. This is the only place I cheated. Everywhere else I used traditional oak pegs. I used 1 inch foam in the walls between V-joint t&g pine on the inside and 6 inch wide channel rustic on the outside. I used 5 inches of foam in the ceiling between the metal roofing and pine on the inside. There is 3 inches of foam between the summer beam and floor joists. And the picture of the shops dutch door shows my much better looking wife,who is younger than me. I’m a 59 year old retired construction worker who has very little hair all of which is very grey. And yes I do have an open loft area for wood storage with access doors on the front and back of the shop.
