Yup, Virginia Beach to be exact. I really don't have a single clue
Once I get the garage doors done this week, I plan on insulating the exterior wall as well. It was covered in that wood paneling (above the garage in the picture) which the prior owner recycled from the living room remodel. I tore that down and threw up some left over drywall from a bathroom remodel last spring.
I didn't have the money or care to insulate it at the time, however, I didn't mud it just in case. Well, I cleaned out my attic out finally after 4 years of living here and found a few rolls of scrap insulation up in there. I'm pulling the drywall down real quick soon and stuffing that behind it... it can only help. My garage has been about 15°-20° warmer than it has been outside this week. With the insulation, I'm hoping it'll be about 25°-30° warmer. So for arguments sake, it was 30° the other day and the garage was hovering around 50°.
I'm aware that this build may end up being a total failure. The plan is to learn about maintaining a SW
tank levels where I can be messy and such. I would love to have a SW
tank inside but I don't have the space or knowledge to be comfortable inside right now.
