Reclaiming Our Old Shed
Back in 2018, we began the conversion of an old (and I mean old) hand built 🔨 shed into a flower cooler 🌸. Given the starting condition of this shed, we knew we were in for an extended project timeline, but now we are getting close to celebrating the completion. Here is a quick review of our project and some challenges we faced. In phase 1, we had to first repair a giant hole in the roof before putting on a new roof. For phase 2, we removed the damaged siding, fixed part of the foundation and applied new paint to the outside. Next, we began phase 3 with insulating the inside. Here is where the challenging part also began. Given an odd ceiling shape and the settling of the structure, every piece of rigid insulation was custom cut (some several times) to fit the out-of-square walls and ceiling. Finally after several weeks of cutting insulation boards, foaming gaps and taping seams, we are ready to move to the last phase, putting in the electric connection and starting up the Coolbot.
