Within the next three weeks I'll be moving into an old shed/workshop with my boyfriend. It needs a good bit of work to make living in it comfortable: insulation, the addition of a second story so that my boyfriend and I have a little more space and won't drive each other crazy (we're planning on basically building it like a loft bed and building extra beds and bookcases below the loft but connected to the frame so that it's more stable), putting a roof over the deck so we can hang out there even when it's raining and installing a woodburning stove. Oh, and installing a door.|
The part I need some advice on is insulating the shed. Conventional insulation methods are ugly and would likely require a lot of extra construction to cover it up. Any ideas on how we could insulate it cheaply and quickly? The shed's in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina so extreme cold is not a concern. Also the shed is built onto a two foot-tall deck.
