A Vivid Lesson on Heat Loss

Dale started the final leg of the garage/shop insulation project by getting the first section of the well/Viper/bike side roof done. Very clear in this picture exactly how far he's gotten. Heat loss is very evident by the section of roof nearly clear of frost. That side of the garage/shop actually has a small heater to keep the car, bikes and most importantly the well and water conditioner above freezing. There is a wall and door between that side and the totally unheated side as you can quite clearly see in the picture. Oh, and just ignore the hounds pretending to be frozen there - baby Sybil and momma Cricket were quite warm, having just come out of the house where they'd been lying in front of the pellet stove. It was 21 degrees in this shot.
