Hey Weldman! How you been?


Okay, let me throw out some photos. The walls are sheeted and not shown here, but all the ceiling joists are installed now and beginning framing the end wall, then install the ceiling insulation......


I photo'd here, the joists just stuck in there sideways so that I could get the NASA vapor barrier pulled and secured. You can see in the one photo, the sheet metal strips attached to the tops of the joists, to act as stops for the insulation, and give me extra seal surface.

Going good, I’ve decided to jump to 24 volts on my solar system a bit early. Found a deal on 6kw single/split phase inverter/charger on eBay that runs for $1600 before tax, I got it for $850. Will explain more on my build with pictures. Anywho, I had some radiant barrier like you are playing with, very strong tear resistant and self extinguishes itself, great stuff. Great progress you will be free for the winter to work on it since it’s so insulated and closed in. Just the heat from electronics will keep it warm.
Swear you should stack some solar panels on the roof.

Hey, thank you guys for the comments. Work is still proceeding and I got the ceiling framed in. Insulation up there starts tonight which is just in time since we had some snow here and it froze hard last night. More photos and response coming........

Sam, all my wiring and water supply plumbing will be to the living space side of my walls for access at any point. They'll be placed behind a soffit light running at the ceiling line and under my cabinets right at the toe kick. Wiring will be very simple with no USB Cat 5 or coax cable. Just speakers, electrical and water lines.

No photos uploaded yet, but the insulation in my ceiling is done enough to run heat..... and until I pay my account down at the building supply, work has stopped inside for now, and I've jumped outside to install the trim around my exterior door, and siding, as well as painting, since I have siding and paint on hand from jobs in the past. I do have some scrap insulation that I'll be using to cut costs.

I did fire up the truck and drove it a couple miles and then parked it in another spot in my yard in anticipation of the up coming snow.

Winter is on its way so I jumped outside to tighten things that will encounter the wind, rain and snow.

Here's the insulation on my lid. The 2X6 ceiling joists are cedar to reduce the weight and fight rotting should things get wet, plus it's all I had on hand! I ran out of money at the moment so I had to shut things down here for a bit and jump outside for a bit. I can at least run heat right now and stay warm if I need to. Might start roughing in electrical so I can eliminate the cord running through the door.
