Hoping making this thread keeps me motivated and on track. I’ve been moving pretty slow so far.
So long story short, room on the back of the garage had a flood from a water line, had to rip it right down to the studs. However its looking like prime reptile room real estate now.
So here is my general plan
the lights, which the middle changed to 2 lights because of a structural beam running right through the middle. also added 4 boxes for ceiling fans between all the outside lights
So dried it out, cleaned up mold and other damage control, reinsulated the structural walls. Studded out in front of those walls for extra insulation and it also buried the plumbing drain, rebuilt the remaining wall. Ran plumbing/electrical.
so brings me to today, finished insulation. well besides the floor. That will be next task. I have 8 inches of insulation on the outside walls and 6 inches on the inside. Ceiling only has room for 6 inches. Not as much insulation as my current reptile room, but it is without a doubt far better air sealed, which should help a ton.
