Building science in the garage/workshop?
Hi. I am in Zone 4a near Nashville and it is a very wet, mixed-humid location.
I am trying to determine how much air sealing I should be using on a workshop? I will use either post frame or 24″ O.C. 2x walls. Heat will probably be wood and radiant. Cooling will likely be open doors/windows.
I will spend a lot of time working in the shop 20hrs a week. Therefore, I would like it to be fairly comfortable work environment.
I am thoroughly sold on building science for my house when we build it; however, I have been planning to apply the same ideas to my shop and starting to wonder if I am being too extreme for a workshop?
Therefore, I wanted to ask wiser men their opinion on how far would you go on a workshop?
My pockets are shallow, but I do not want big regrets.
Thank you for your advice.
