before winter. I just finished insulating the pass through and the front storage area. Used 1 in. extruded Styrofoam cut to fit tight in between the floor joist and then covered it with silver bubble blanket. I used double faced tape to attach the bubble blanket to the joist. Taped off the seams with aluminum furnace tape and then used 1/8 + 1/2 pop rivets and 3/4 fender washers to finish securing it.
I was going to wait and do it next spring, but then I remember how darn cold that cement floor is in the shed. It worked out good to do it now, I could open the big door and it faces south and the afternoon sun warmed it up real nice in there.
Best part is, now it's done.

Lloyd, it does help. Ours has been done for over a year now and the bedroom/bath area does stay warmer during the Winter and cooler in the hot Summer. Now you have one less thing to worry about over the Winter.

Glad you posted a picture so I didn't have to. I had the DW outside the trailer cutting all the material for me and handing it in so I did not have to get in and out all the time. Even with her help it took me a while to straighten back up after getting out of the storage area. It has to help some over not having any insulation at all.

Awesome, tremendous, fantastic job!!!...WTH is it?!

Old Farmer, in this case, a pic is NOT worth a thousand words. I know you did a great installation on this...show it off.

Can you zoom out a little,,,please!

Sounds like another thing for the To Do list.

If his is like the job I did there is rigid foam insulation between the floor joist in the storage areas then it is all covered with the aluminum bubble wrap and the seams and edges are sealed with aluminum AC/Heating tape to finish it all off. The links below are just for reference, I used 1" rigid foam and others have used 2".



Lynn, if you need more picturesI can try and take some next weekend when we clean out and rearrange our storage areas before our Christmas trip.

Lynn, I thought you had a better imagination.

Next project is to get rid of that flex pipe they have in there for a heat run. You can see the length of 4in. rigid laying there just waiting for me to get a little ambition back.
