Insulation for the shop arrived today.







Sheetrock for the shop ceiling was also delivered and stored on the Ford AA in the garage.



Shiplap for the shop walls was delivered last week.

Wow!  That's a lot of insulation.  Our local and winter volunteers will not have to run the stove as putting up all that insulation will keep them warm until the task is finished.

The end result will make winter shop work a lot more pleasant.

The shop must seem quiet with all that sound absorbing material in there

I thought that blown in insulation was going to be installed in the shop. Why the change? Cost?

Yes, cost was the difference.  This is less than half the price of the blown-in - of course that comes at the cost of volunteer time...

Will installation be a weekday project? If so what days are planned as I can sometimes be there on Wednesday.

Work on the shop should be going on Tuesdays and Wednesdays but check in at the beginning of the week to confirm the plan for the week.

It looks great.  Alas, all that 2x4 cross bracing where all kinds of things were stored, stuck, placed, lost, hidden, etc.  Now we can build shelves in the warmth of the new stoves.

Thanks for those pics . The shop will be soon a nice and warm place to work when the potbelly will be burning. By the way isn't the olive green jacket a M65 by Alfa ?

Alain,

Knowing some of our volunteers, it may have come from the US Army.  You can find a reasonable facsimile at https://www.medalsofamerica.com/m-65-jacket-blank
