If you missed the last episode of putting up that two post lift, i included a link down in the description below. I also covered some general updates for the shop. Just to catch everybody up to speed as to where i'm, currently at because there's been a lot of progress over the last month, but it's been slow and steady progress. Nothing like really video appropriate. So i just covered the updates. As you can see, we've got lights. The hvac units are in so it's really coming together. The insulation is going to be one of, if not the most important parts of this build, because as much as i've enjoyed my old shop when the temperatures get to their extremes in the summer and winter time. That place can be quite unbearable to work in because it's not insulated at all, so with this shop i'm, basically encasing the entire inside enclosed cell phone, which is an amazing product. It'S a little on the expensive side, it's, definitely more expensive than your traditional fiberglass insulation. But for a metal building and sealing up cracks, especially when you have walls that aren't as thick as the traditional like stick built house or garage walls, it's an awesome product and i'll basically be showing you guys the process of doing that, because it's really quite interesting Before we get started, let's do a quick recap on the shop, especially for those who are just now tuning into the series. Thank you so much for watching.
It really means a lot. The shop is 70 feet, wide 30 feet deep and it has 14 foot walls. I have three 10 by 10 insulated bay doors and a 36 inch insulated side door there's. Also a handful of insulated windows left over from our house, build with a shop of this size and the amount of prep work that needed to be done beforehand. The foam crew is estimating about a three day process which i think is awesome. They'Ve already been out, as you can see by the plastic to start the initial prep work. They still have a little bit left to do. I think they'll end up finishing around midday today and then start the foam process. After that i haven't bothered to film any of the initial prep work so far, just because yesterday it was raining so hard. You could barely hear yourself thinking here so it's going to be really interesting to see how much the insulation of course affects thermal efficiency and just general comfort, but also how much it'll, hopefully deaden noise um. Of course, we'll talk about that later. I think the phone crew is just about to get here so i'm going to go ahead and wrap up the last bit of filming that i need to do and then we'll start following the process, so Music Applause, ah uh, so hmm and then you need to Move the whole thing towards the Music Music, and so all right.
We are in day two of foaming. Everything is looking really really good. The guys have already been out here working on the roof. Some they've got that side going and it's. Just it looks amazing. Daniel aka phone daddy has been laying down this foam like butter. It looks amazing and the other guy has been going behind him as you've seen and scraping all of the metal poles and laying down some of those high spots which is going to make it super nice when it comes to putting up the metal walls it's going To save a lot of time, definitely not something they had to do, but i very much appreciate it. They'Re they're really going above and beyond on this thing, but the closed cell foam it's amazing like when it's cured it's hard as a rock and it's filling up. All the cracks and little crevices and stuff, which is really why i picked this foam over open cell foam. You know they both have similar properties as far as like you know, foaming and what they're supposed to do. But the closed cell is going to be a lot more of a dense material, so it's going to have a higher r value than open cell foam, and you know being that the walls aren't very thick to begin with that's going to be very helpful. For you know, energy savings and keeping this thing comfortable year round, but i'm super excited. I think they're about to get started um once again, so let's keep watching so so um wow, oh so so, come on all right, all right, Music, all right! Everyone! The foaming is finished and it turned out fantastic now, it's time to start getting some walls up, i've got another crew getting started with that right now, i'm, going to do metal walls to complement the exterior two tone white on black, i decided to leave the ceiling Exposed i ended up, painting the closed cell foam black.
You can actually paint it with the proper paint and it turned out so good. I think the full realization of it all you know coming together is going to be when it's all done, but having that black ceiling with the white walls and the bright high bay led lights is going to be very bright. Very impactful and it's gon na be super clean, so let's check it out, Applause, so so, Music, so so. Applause, Applause, Music, okay, Music, so so, Music, Music, so Music Applause, wow, so so Music. Now that the walls are in the shop is pretty much finished. I still have to get the four post lift installed, as well as all of the air piping, which i'll end up tying into the old shop as well. The next video i shoot on the shop build is going to focus on the lift and the air piping. So it just gives you an idea of what's to come. I also am going to start moving things in and organizing decorating and all of that, so there will be like a full in depth tour of the shop when i get it presentable, i guess is probably the right word, but it's really coming together. Thank you guys. So much for watching. I really appreciate the support and, of course, the understanding with all of the sporadic content, scheduling and stuff it's been rough to try to figure out, but it's gon na be all worth the wait.
