Default Barbie's She Shed

She's finally up, and soon will get all her equipment (after the city inspector has approved her, that is)

Lots of room, and we'll be adding a loft and two work benches in her: one as an island, and one across the back wall (that may have cupboards underneath for storage,) The loft will be in the back, because Ken is already talking about putting a garage door on her, instead of the doors currently there. I opted out of the extras that were on the model; didn't need them; but may create an overhang once Ken makes up his mind if we're putting in the garage door.

The floor, I was informed, is strong enough to have a bulldozer on it. I get the felling Ken will be putting the truck in there, if absolutely necessary when he has to do repairs (if he puts on a garage door.)

Anyway, while a bit more plain than the model, I'm happy. Let the creative juices flow once again!!

Nice! I get a chuckle from the TV ad about the she "shed!"

That’s looking awesome Barb! Tell Ken the doors on there now are much efficient for keeping heat in then a garage door would ever be.
I’d much prefer to have those doors myself ,as I have no intentions of driving a vehicle in my shop again .

Once the insulation and panelling go in it will be a dream shop, especially if it gets a reverse cycle air-conditioner!

No on the garage door, leaks too much heat. The inside of my garage door is insulated, but it still leaks a lot of heat. Add radiant barrier put in under the roof before you insulate isn't cheap, but it really keeps the temperature under control. My shop shed walls are lined with radiant barrier beneath the insulation as well. Amazing how that stuff reflects the heat out in summer. With R38 insulation up top, plus radiant barrier, your present door setup is going to be comfortable most of the time. Are the windows double pane? That makes a BIG difference too. I did one wall in pegboard in my shed, which has been very handy. I hang small accessories up there so I don't forget I have them.

On balance, however, I sure wish I had one just like it. Barb's and Ken's palace.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Nice! I like the proximity of the doors to each other. It leaves long uninterrupted walls for benches, machines, and storage. Doors, while essential, are a R.P.I.T.A. as far as working efficiency is concerned.
The garage doors are a huge bonus in decent weather; they allow for extending the work area out onto the area in front /behind the building.

I was painting a piece a couple of days ago, with a linseed oil based exterior stain. Being able to do it outside meant I kept the smell out of the shop, and the finish dried much faster outdoors.
I'm surprised at the complaints raised here about insulted garage doors; mine is excellent at keeping the heat in, and I fully utilize the 10'W x 7'H of the actual opening.

Dan, The total of my door insulation is R12, 2 layers of R4 radiant barrier and one layer of R4 foam. Better than nothing I guess. Once you open the garage door, you'll lose most of you AC or heated air. It was also a pita to get that insulation installed.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
