My shop isn't insulated either. Didn't have the money to spare when I got the shop and just let it slide since. But, being as the heat, and cold, is really getting to me this year, starting to think how to insulate it. Rolls of insulation would be good, but not on my knees or back. But looks like I can get ridged foam insulation, cut it to fit between the joists, with a lot less pain and time, so that is likely the rout I will go. Then thinking OSB will work well over it, especially since I have a small air nailer. Dunno if will cut it in strips, chunks, or what. For me at least it seems to be the best route, figure it will cause me the least pain and time. Should give me the incentive to make some changes, and also to get rid of a batch of stuff the younger son had me store in there - and then never touched again.

Try to insulate the shop with some cooling system. I remembered a few years ago when I went to a wood shop for purchasing a lamp, I got impressed with the interiors they had in their shop. Not only the rooftop, but also the floors was fully made of wooden floors. After I asked the manager about highly unique designed floors, they suggested me to call the wood*flooring Sacramento from the website for having such an amazing wood floor designs.

I put OSB board on the walls on the shop I had before this one. I then blew insulation behind that. I also put OSB on the ceiling. Light reflected off of it really good. For 1/2" OSB it's $7.55 a sheet in my neck of the woods.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

My shop is fully insulated 3 1/2 in the walls and 6" in the ceiling, but very little of it has any covering. The plan was to cover walls and ceiling with 1/2" plywood, but I had to move everything in because I had to vacate my former shop, so only a few sheets were put up and those are where the clamps and small parts bins needed to be hung. I did get it fully wired though. 4" quad outlets every 4' on #12/3 BX cable inside the walls and special runs for the 240 volt machines. I even ran the compressed air in the walls using 5/8 soft copper and flare fittings. Lights, heat pump, air compressor and all of my tools are in there and it's comfortable to work in there. If it never gets walls, oh,well.

I'm still spending most of my available time working on the 17 X 26' photography studio upstairs in the house. Very little has been done in my shop/outbuilding since January 2019. I have several woodworking projects planned for the photo studio, so I will be back out there soon.

I have a feeling the most Iíll get done before winter is have the insulation in the walls and ceiling, then if itís cold outside I can at least work in there and board it at my leisure .
Iím not going to be working,so maybe Iíll actually apply myself and get it done before itís cold .
Not very confident though , as it seems the months go by extremely quickly

That rigid foam costs a fortune here Joat . I may as well go with Roxul

There is one entire wall in my shop that has 3 1/2 inch R13 insulation, and it's covered by 1/4 inch peg board. There is also a layer of radiant barrier on the inside of that wall which is 3/4 ply. That makes it R17. The ceiling has about 6 inches, but that insulation is sealed in with 2 inch thick foam with a reflective coating on the inside. I also have radient barrier (Bubble type) just under the roof, which keeps heat out in summer, heat in in winter. I think it took about 2 days to get all the insulation in.

The ceiling in the garage has 6 inch (R38) that was put in by a professional crew, with blown in insulation in all the walls. The ceiling was done in a couple of hours, including putting in the radiant barrier under the OSB roofing. The same crew also installed venting so there's air flow into the area and a powered exhaust fan so if it gets more than 120 up there, it changes the air.

I found that having a good powered staple gun makes installing insulation much faster and easier.

I've mentioned it before, but we did a IR heat check comparing the bare OSB to the radiant barrier covered side and there was about a 35 degree difference. Out here in the Mojave, that counts big time. I mention the details because, while we don't get condensation and mold problems here, where you are Rick, that attic ventillation is likely to be necessary.

I bet you could have that insulation fully in with about 4 evenings of work. Install one wall per day, and then the ceiling. Get the stuff in and worry about the wall materials later. I think you will seriously regret putting your new CNC through a winter of freezing in that ice box.

Tom I stored all the cnc stuff in the basement. Thought I’d assemble it when the garage is complete inside ,which may be never if this new job turns out .

I thought I’d try and get some part time work ,as that would give me time to work on my house and shop .
But in a strange turn of events , one of our main contractors just crashed his quad breaking his leg and also receiving some spinal damage .
So now they want me full time . This will be a lot more work than I’m used to , and I suspect I’ll be pretty much bagged when I get home . But if I’m working out of town , the shift is 8 in and 6 out ,and that would free me up .
I could certainly use some decent income for the time being , as I still have way to high of a mortgage .
Things change rapidly around here , so I’m going to make the best of it and save as much as I can for now , as you never know what tomorrow brings .
I’m hoping this works out till I’m at least 60 ,which is in April 2021, then I can apply for CPP early .
Maybe hard work will get me in better shape and I’ll really enjoy this job and stretch it till I’m 65

@RainMan 2.0
You know, even if you only put in 2 hours per day, you could still get it done before winter. You have, what, 6 weeks before it starts turning cold. By then you could have have the insulation in.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
