Does he need it in Sacramento? How cold does it get there? I suspect he might want it for sound attenuation at least so he doesn't piss off the neighbors.

Most of those kit companies supply the stuff in rolls. You really can't hang anything on the walls with out ripping the stuff. It's ususally a vynal product that comes in 4'0 rolls if I remember.

I was thinking of 1"or 2"foil backed foam. then I'll have to put in a metal liner to keep sparks for. I've only been in Ca. 2 1/2 yrs. the coldest I,ve seen it here in Sacramento was 28*. But I haven't ever seen Houston flood like it did. Anything is possible to change with the weather. This picture is where I left off today. All I have is to put up both gable ends, trim and the roof.

This is about all that I got done today. I got both gable ends in today and I got the two front corner trim on. It's been so hot. Today was 93*, I worked 10 mins. and cooled 20 mins. After all I'm doing all this work by myself. Tomorrow I will start putting on the roof. Few miner things to do before I start with the roof. Tomorrow it will be much cooler so maybe I can work 20 mins. and cool for 10 mins. Here are 2 pictures that I got done :D :) :) :) Shelby, Sacramento

The attachment DSCN1170.JPG is no longer available
in 1169 photo I had a 1" X 4" clamped in the middle to of the sheet to hold the tin in place with two magnets holding the ends in place. What you can do when you are determined to get something done

Today was kinda cool 85* Got all the roof on. I still had to take regular breaks to keep cool. 8-12 I received the building kit, around 5 PM. today 9-17 got the roof completed. No bad for a 72 yr. young man all by myself. Here is a finish picture/ roof complete :D :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) Shelby, Sacramento

Fantastic job Shelby! I pray your patience, determination, and hard work are rewarded with many years of enjoyment working in your new shop. I'm inspired by gentleman like yourself who remain active and passionately engaged in life in retirement!

It is protection from the scalding summer heat.

I've been working on the electrical the last 2 days. Not to much to show there but I'll have plenty of receptacles. 9 of the 110 recpt. and 2 220v recpt. for my welder plus I have a 100' cord also for my welder. I still have to get my 8'X10' garage door. For now I'm working on the electrical with 6- 4' LED lights in the ceiling. More later :D :D :) :) :) Shelby, Sacramento

Got my 10' X 8' garage door yesterday. I've got a few more adjustments then wind the spring to help lift the door and put the seal around the out side of the door. Then I'll call the city to get my perm finalized. The I'll put in a work bench across the back then start working on my 'A' :D :) :) :) :) Shelby, Sacramento
