I don't remember what the spray foam cost; it was inside the price of the whole turnkey building, but I like it really well. I have 1" on the walls and ceiling of the entire structure, and 4" in all the walls and ceiling of the apartment in one end of the shop building. I sort of wish I had done more than 1", but our winters are very mild (summers hot though). The best part of the spray foam is that moisture does not condense on the inside. The apartment takes almost nothing to heat and cool, a small heat pump and only $90 of electricity in the hottest or coldest months.@1911 I like the look of the opener you have there and I will look into that as an option, thanks for posting them. I see you went with the sprayfoam option....How do you like it? I just had someone come by this morning to quote 3" of 2lb, closed cell, sprayfoam for the walls & ceiling. I have received some really high quotes for sprayfoam. Average has been about $2.85 / sqft.
Bummer! It would sure be nice in your winter though.
Hi Bob, I have 18" thick pads for a 2-post lift once I have everything else in there, and if there is room. The lift would be nice but not a requirement, whereas ample work space is a requirement to get anything done. I will probably rearrange the shop half a dozen times until I get it to feel right, time will tell. That is an interesting idea on the lifting device but for $1800 I think I'll let someone else be the guinea pig this time aroundI dont know anything about his company but the concept is something I have been looking at for my own barn in lieu of stairs/ladder.Compare to Versa Attic-Lift (Price: $2800+) With wireless remote! Move items to the attic Made of metal and wood (thickness can be up to 10 inches) Dimensions of the ceiling opening: 26" x 50" opening for the 24" x 48" platform 18" x 48" platform requires 20" x 50" for the ceiling opening For...auxx-lift.com
I'll let you be the guinea pig.
You also might want to rethink the air compressor on the second deck. There is a lot of noise and vibration there, and I'd be concerned about the deck becoming an amplifier.
Looks very good so far
Are you going to add a lift?
