Update 2024......

I went out the last weekend of March to finish hooking up the well pump and water supply. 

The house now has all utilities and gas for the stove, heat, and water heater.

This happened March 30 and I woke up to 3 inches of fresh snow.

I just spent 3 days  insulating the shop building......by myself.

This stuff is suposed to be a new hi-tech insulation. It's only a few millimeters thick and is R-17.

It's applied across the steel framing, then the wood furring strips get attached so you have something to hang the drywall on.

I did remember to box out for the woodstove flue, and put in a water line and a conduit for propane..

It seems to be working.

I'm going to drywall everything. I also spent almost $6K to gravel the area.

This is the full view from the shop roll-up door.

I can imagine you had some words with that insulation putting it up by yourself…..ha ha ha 

and that 92 /81 degrees looks like it is going to serve it’s purpose…..

 

13% humidity is just hard to imagine … I’d have to water my plant twice a day…… 

 

This thread is fun watch…. Thanks…..
