- the garage doors were a bit of a pain.... still need to find the right automatic garage opener... hopefully one that interfaces with my phone.
- Stairs to the second story are done and reenforced. These are awesome... if you havent seen them... they are reclaimed bleachers from my High School gym.

Next on the Agenda,
- Get the rest of the permits so we can get Gas and Electric in the place
- decide how we are going to insulate. We already have 3 quotes ranging from 4k to 10k. so that is a little discouraging.
- Heading to Green Bay to pick up an 85k BTU furnace for bottom (freebie), already have a 35k btu vertical wall furnace for upstairs
- paint the damn slider
Have you thought about spray foam insulation? They do it for anything and is better than normal insulation. Here is a link to what it does and maybe you can find a dealer in your area to give you a quote.

where do you think the 10K estimate came from.

thanks though... great idea... but the foam is the most expensive type of insulation.

I think the plan will be to do batting on the garage walls, then use foam to envelope the upstairs in. The downstairs will rarely be heated, so cheaper insulation will be sufficient, then the upstairs will be done with the good stuff.

start recycling newspaper. shred it and stuff it down the walls. it will be cold for the first few weeks/months, but spring and summer is just around the corner. set up a deal with newspapers or schools to collect their recyclable paper. then shred it and stuff the walls for cheap.

then there's also adding the reflective film as well.

it would need to be treated... maybe. usually, when its installed, its packed in pretty tight and only smolders when introduced to flame, but doesnt ignite.

WOW I had no idea it cost that much. I was thinking of doing that to my 2 car garage that is air conditioned and wanted it to be cooler in the summer. Hopefully my little 400 sq ft garage won't be too bad.

I looked into this too...we may use that for some parts,

but for our downstair walls.... 30x60 with 12ft ceilings it is cheaper just to buy the big rolls of the pink stuff and put it in.

I would love to use the blow in cellulose, it realy helps stiffen up the walls as well.
