    Warehouse 13

    My little version of warehouse 13.

    I lined the inside with 1 1/2" foam insulation. It makes a huge difference. When it was cooler out and you went in there, you could feel the steel walls just radiating heat they soaked up from the sun like crazy.

    The 1.5" of foam makes a huge difference. We've been having some unseasonably warm days, up to around 90, and I've been working out there and it's amazing how comfy it has kept the temperature.

    I used liquid nails to put things in place, but in reality the way I cut it and put things together, the sides would actually hold the roof panels up, should the LN fail. But so far, everything is holding together.

    I'm not all that worried about condensation, because, hey, it's the desert, and we are pretty darn dry here.

    Warehouse 13 and Area 51. Hmmmmmm........................
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Brent, I forget off the top of my head, but if that is yours you might want to take a tip from the skoolie crowd. They use heat reflective paint on the roof of the bus, which lowers temps a bunch. Here is a link:

    Looking at the attached pic, I'm wondering if Brent sampled to much of that beer, then he and Bob ran into into the container and tipped it over.

    I have to ask...after working all day in there, when you close your eyes at night, do you still see the letters "R-Tech"?

    Sharons only question in there was why I didn't align all of the 'R-Tech' logo's right side up.

    I had to Google Warehouse 13. Didn't realize you guys got that many artifacts that far north. I thought most of them were farther south around Groom Lake.

    My AR self always asks the obvious However I fear, many artifacts will get stored and never again see the light of day
