My shop was always kind of cold so I thought I would tear the wall and door out. It was a garage,but to small for a car. Well maybe a small one. Anyway I put up some studs, insulated the walls put the windows and the siding. It has a good size door for bringing lumber in or taking out finished up projets. Now it’s a lot warmer too.

Excellent job Duane, having the shop insulated should be a nice thing. I am working on closing in a single car gargae stall (13.5’x25’) and today I was insulating and hanging 1/2” plywood. I really hope the insulation pays off in the end, although it didn’t add a whole lot the cost. Nice work with the wood on the outside too.

So nice, and it looks so much better on the house also.
Wish you wonderful warm hours there,
