What kind of insulation would you recommend for a 20′ shipping container being renovated into a home/studio space?
I’m renovating a 20′ shipping container into a home/studio space and am wondering what would be the best “green” insulation to use. I will be doing some interior framing so would like to insulate the inside walls and floor. As well, I am building a green roof/deck that is framed using the structural strength of the container (no weight on the center of the roof) and would like to add insulation between the joist supports and deck floor (approx 3″ – 9″ above the container roof) and the steel roof. This “deck” area will be waterproof sealed for the green roof so the insulation will be enclosed and not exposed to the elements, but will probably be subject to some moisture.
