What permits do I need?

I do not think that I need a permit to insulate or install drywall, just electrical [or plumbing] work. If I do the electrical first I can install insulation and drywall, but could there be issues if we ever sell?

My sister asked me to look over the instructions for Mom's glucose reader, but I did not take the time to try to get it to work. Mom had an appointment with the nurse that has been trying to help her set it up. Somehow it finally worked when I was there, but she had three long appointments last week that ended up being a waste of time.

I do not think the nurse did anything that wasn't in the manual, so I could have saved us a trip.

I saw one client and removed my big heavy planer and three armloads of lumber from the shed, made another couple of trips emptying the shed and filling up the garage.

If I remove a big piece of plywood and a bed foundation I can sweep out and start building an office.

The fun part is that I cannot pull up the floor, so I need to jack up the shed, insulate the bottom, and screw in treated plywood while lying under a shed.

The one big question is: Should I remove the shelves in the back and the contents thereof, insulate and drywall everything, or just cut two pieces of foamboard to fit the gap, and simply hide the shelves with insulation when I do not need it?

Turn it into a tiny house and rent it out.

If you can stand the floor being thicker, 1/2 foam insulation foil backed with new plywood underlayment on top would eat up about 3/4".

If you've got the headroom, put the 1/2" foam and plywood on top of the floor. No crawling under the shed needed.

Rather than plywood, I'd use particle board. Coat it with 3-4 coats of polyurethane before it's laid down.

That's what I've done. The floor is slippery but chairs roll around really well.

I can spare less than an inch, but I would prefer more insulation when it gets to 0.

On top of what I am already planning, I would need to install a bathroom in the back, a kitchen in the front, get permits for all of that, turn the gate into a security gate with a deadbolt, and include a clause in the contract that if I see you cough I will shoot you on sight and burn your body.

What about MDF?

Particle board with a few coats of something to waterproof it


To clarify, I can spare an inch or less, not that I do not have an entire inch to spare.

[QUOTE=DDG]Difference Between MDF and Particle Boards | Difference ...
Difference Between MDF and Particle Boards | Difference Between
MDF vs Particle Boards. ...these are called engineered woods, which MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) and particle boards are just two examples of. The main difference between MDF and particle board is density as the former is a much denser product ...

Is dense good or bad?

Presumably it's good. Well, I see a lot of furniture which used to be made out of hardwood now being available made out of MDF, but I haven't seen it being used for construction or home improvement yet.
