Leah and I spent most of the Saturday moving furniture and other odds and ends into the new house, with the help of a few friends.  On Sunday the weather was great so in the afternoon we went to Lowe's for a few more supplies and another truck load of insulation and then got to work with the staplers.

The heater will likely go in the NW corner of the garage.  That is also where the breaker box is at so any electrical work will require leaving that area open.  So we started on the south wall.  We were about through the first three rolls when Harry and Sue showed up so we visited with them for a while and showed them the house.  Then back to work for another hour and finish up the second set of 3 rolls.  Leah was impressed at how quickly it went up!

Tonight we'll keep working along the west wall and maybe around the garage doors on the east wall.  Tuesday and Wed. I have other plans and am hoping to get some electrical work done in the rafters on Thursday. 

Here is Leah showing off our progress:


  1. Just a thought before the walls go on; more power outlets, maybe a couple of 220V outlets too (5hp air compressor, welder, heater)

    Great to see the progress you guys are making. See you out there soon.

  2. there are 2 outlets each on the north and south walls and at least 4 outlets along the west wall. several outlets in the ceilings that power the shop lights and ceiling fans. Also a 220V plug is in the NW corner for running a welder or anything else like that. So the garage is pretty well electrified. We'll be running some more outlets into the rafters so there is light there when i make it an attic.
