    An analog clock? Swanky.

    Garage door insulation is in. Hopefully this makes the east facing garage a little more bearable in summer. The exposed-rafters ceiling is probably the biggest problem area, and I'm thinking it'd be expensive to do something about that, so let's see how this goes first. This styrofoam door insulation was an easy DIY job.

    Neat, good luck. Does it feel smaller inside now?

    You could try stapling some rolls of bubble pack insulation up there.

    For the ceiling, I'd recommend 1 of 2 things.


    1in thick purple insulation boards, and staple them to the MDF.

    Or the nuclear option, frame in the ceiling at whatever height you want, insulate it, and then drywall it. I'd be more than willing to give tips or advice.

    Cheapest and easiest option is probably radiant barrier. Radiant barrier sheets can easily be stapled on the wood frame. However, you might not like the oven look? But itíll also make your garage super bright when you turn on the lights!

    This. insulation between the rafters in the roof, and a ceiling, with insulation on top of it.

    Then the only temperature coming in will be through the walls.
