Cave Insulation

One of the challenges up on the hill is the amount of heat that is stored in the rocky ground, making cooling a cave a difficult task.

We ended up adding insulation (R-10) to all sections of the cave to help reach an ideal temperature.

2 layers of insulating panels were added piece by piece and fixed into place throughout the cave.

With the paneling finished, it was amazing how quiet it was inside the cave (no echo!).  Too bad we couldn’t just leave it like this!

A product called Elephant Armor was added to the exterior, giving us our finished surface.
