INSTALLING AND INSULATING NEW CEIVLING IN WOOD PRAIRIE ‘BIG SHED.’ This building started out as a 24-foot by 48-foot shed and has been used for storing equipment and supplies, in addition to housing our Organic Grain Cleaning Line. This vantage is looking northwest.

A year or two later after building the main part, we decided to continue the east roof line and build a connected 16-foot by 48-foot Addition.

Now, the main Big Shed is being converted into a repair shop we can insulate. The sixteen-foot-tall 2×6 studwall offers a lot of height and sufficient room to fit in Caleb’s blue car hoist.

This prospect of insulating this shed is also must less costly than it would be to winterize the non-insulated Quonset Hut we’ve been using as a shop for a dozen years. Up this way Quonsets are insulated with spray foam and that hired-in-process we have come to learn is exorbitantly priced.

The white trailer at right houses the blower for the Maine-made TimberFill insulation which Caleb and crew was that day were blowing into the ceiling. The Rock Wool insulation stacked on the pallet had been used to close off what will become the heated portion from the non-insulated Addition. This Summer we’ll add vents to the attic space.
