    Only 6 inches of foam, what's the R factor of that? I put an R factor of 86 fiberglass in the ceiling of my garage....really only because I over bought and couldn't find the sales slip.

    Quoted from Mamushka:

    FL is not MN. Our main concern is trying to stay cool while you try to stay warm. We max out about at 100F, if you like it at 72F that is only 28F difference. Your low can be -20F (or lower) that is 92F difference to be at 72F. You need much less insulation in FL to maintain a reasonable temp.

    I understand that, I was just wondering what the R factor was for the foam.

    Quoted from vid1900:

    R36, but its also air tight, so you don't have losses due to air leakage, or condensation problems with a vapor barrier.

    Dang that's really good. I have a "cold roof" so all my insulation is above the ceiling.

    Quoted from PinballMikeD:

    I'm not sure what the R factor is, but I can tell you that my garage attic is noticeable cooler than my garage. I wanted to utilize my garage attic for storage space, so blown-in insulation wasn't going to work - hence the spray foam.

    That's what I thought, you have some nice room up there.

    Quoted from PinballMikeD:

    1) Yes, I used LED lighting. The fixtures are made by Lithonia; they are contractor grade. I'd have to dig up the details for parts numbers, etc. Here's a picture of the lights a 10PM:
    2) No, I hired a contractor.
    3) I'm going with a Trane 17 SEER system with humidity setpoint controls. I'll post more on this as the project progresses.

    Where ya gonna put all your garage stuff?

    Quoted from radium:

    Good thread. I'm about to embark on the same adventure. Bought a 8-acre property last winter with a house plus three other buildings. I'm close to finished with the house remodel, then the garage work starts. Maybe I should make a thread!

    Yes you should.

    Quoted from PinballMikeD:

    I decided to put the pinball restorations and MODs on hold this weekend.
    It's time to install some Gladiator Gearwall Panels. My garage is a wreak and it's driving me crazy...... I need to get all my cabinets installed and start organizing this mess

    Here's a link for folks interested in the Gearwall Panels:
    They are pretty easy to install. Just find your studs, they should be on a 16" center to center layout, and screw the panels to the wall with 2" drywall screws. If you want the screws to blend in with the panels then you can spray paint the heads white. The panel are 48"x12".
    Now I can clean my tables off and install my vise and rivet press

    Totally unrelated, but I got a kick out of this. Look at what I found while cleaning out some boxes:

    These are "Return of the Jedi" glasses that Burger King was selling back in 1983. Damn I'm getting old. Anyway, I can't believe I still have these. Time to wash one and have a cold beer
    Here's the shop all cleaned up:

    Now it's time to start shopping for power tools

    Love your garage. What cabinets and work bench did you go with? They look like the Sears ones.
