INSULATION AND WALLS
The worst part of this entire project was installing all the insulation and walls. My already allergy prone sinuses had a hay day (or is that hay fever day) with all the fiberglass in the air. Anyway, it was one year of a lot of hard work. Interspersed with this work I also built the Catwalk and the Ramp...
Add some OSB
Got some insulation done on the dreaded ceiling. I built a wylie-coyote-style thingy out of the old set of steps I had. It's working good for reaching high places!
After getting the support slats installed, I started weaving in the insulation:
I put up a couple pieces of press board that serve as my "tiles" to see how well it holds (so far so good btw):
Got much more done on the ceiling. Finished putting the "tiles" up over the main floor. Really a LOT of work lifting that stuff over my head!
...now getting started on the back wall...
The inspector examines some materials

"...miles and miles of OSB..."

West wall OSB and insulation complete
Next, got the south wall done as well
With the north wall also complete - that wraps up the walls and insulation for the main building. All that remains is to finish off the loft (see The Loft)
