Post: RE: Insulating non-wrapped structure

Just had our 30 x 40 metal garage foamed to make it suitable for wood shop. Very cold in northern Illinois. Very expensive, but no point stating the cost. You’d have to get a local quote.

Harbor Freight sells a little pump-up cushion. It’s flat when you slide it under something, then when you use the squeeze-bulb to inflate it, it will lift the fridge about two inches.
