Actually going with the foil faced poly iso three and a half inches thick. What did you do to break that hand? That don't sound like a good time! ):

I suggest that then add some fiberglass or cellulose insulation to absorb sound, itís why I didnít fill my wall cavities full of spray foam insulation plus thermal bridging I wanted to avoid. I got angry and put my fist through a car window in junk yard that someone pulled a transmission in and did it in a order that bound up the transmission, plus couldnít get part out in time and itís 4 hr drive to get to it.

Yup! That'll cramp your day. Well, I hope you get healed fast enough.


Regarding the noise issue, I hope that the 3/8 inch air space will help elleaviate that. The roof will be more like 1 1/4 on account of the bows.


Today, I insulated and sheeted the inside of the back wall at the entry. All studs and plates are in on the drivers side and insulation fitting begins tomorrow, and sheeting as I go. Once I get the drivers side done, I'll start feeling like I might beat the cold.....

Here's the wall after insulation and before I sheeted it.

I believe you will beat the cold. Nice insulation job, too bad the door and the window in it will be the weak link in the armor for insulation value and for breaking in. Never liked the thought of window you can break no matter the size you can access the door lock or windows one could crawl through, burglar bars it is with emergency release. Though 3M makes a film to help thwart such problems you should look into.

Generally speaking, we don't have too much a problem with breaking in to, around here. Like our home, this will be left unlocked all the time here in the yard. Heck, my truck is sitting out in the yard right now with the key in the ignition, as it has every single night since forever! I do worry though, because the world is a changing! On the road however, we'll be locking it up and I was contemplating even installing interior shutters to close it off from the outside.

Last night, I jammed out 6 feet of wall before the wife called me up wanting my company. Can't imagine why?

Tonight, I took off. Here's a photo of things thus far though......


Board is holding that bay in until the silicone sets, and I can put up the sheeting. I worry about my engineering, and any issues I might be over looking, but time is running out and I need to be in position to get heat on in there when the time comes. One things for sure..... we're solid!


Work resumes tomorrow night.

Donít mind my paranoia just war and Washington state has made me this way, especially fact of they just let them go here. Anywho nice progress and a shutter would be great not just for thieves but if a bad storm blows through. Got pretty hairy in Montana a few nights this summer and I know how most of the country is.

I was thinking a shutter just in case a window breaks in transit.

Yes, I should be paranoid too I suppose. Worlds changing and getting crazier every day I swear.

As for progress and photos........ I'm only half way down that wall. I'll be hitting it hard today though. Saw my first stink bug in a window, which means Fall is on it's way and I gotta step this shit up or I'll be framing in de cold! NOT!

But if I did that, the place would be inhabitable! Three and a half inches of Iso puts the R factor above that of a conventional home and there's not going to be side windows at least for the first year. The ceiling will be 2X 6 framing 4 foot centers to eliminate seams as much as possible. There will be a little bit of linkage to address the long over spans for the lid sheeting

Tonight, I moved everything over to the other side so that operations could begin on the passenger side. Cut my bottom plates and they are setting there ready to install.

Given that I've only got 24 feet, it's going to be fairly simple, and I'm still working out a few details.

Both long walls insulating is done, now starting to sheet them. Plan is to get them sheeted, then ledger and start ceiling framing, then end wall.
