Insulating and heating barn
We are are about to start on a project of converting our horse barn into an office area. We are in southern Coos County NH. The area we want to heat is 900 sf, so first floor only. Half the barn has a four foot crawlspace the other is full basement. The building is post and beam about 160 years old. The walls are 6 inches deep the floors and ceilings are thicker because of the beam construction. There is no natural gas, so propane Rinnai wall furnace is what we were considering for heat. Our plan was to use closed cell urethane for insulation, but are open to other ideas. The help we received on the house insulation worked beautifully this first winter. We thank you, the oilman not so much.
