Insulation: never easier

Making your garage a year-round workplace.

Many homeowners look at the garage as the largest room of their house and ask: Why can't we make better use of this space year-round? Great question!

Sadly, too many garages are beastly hot in the summer and icy cold in the winter. Let's see if we can change that.

The detached 2 1/2-car garage shown here got an upgrade with batts of R-13 insulation in the walls and ceiling. The insulation and a new natural-gas garage heater will allow the homeowners to keep the garage interior 40F or warmer all winter. The heated space transforms into a retreat for their kids to play in inclement weather, and working in the garage in the winter no longer requires gloves and a stocking cap.
