Your outdoor workshop is likely one of your favorite places to be. You can spend hours out there working on projects — but now the weather is turning colder, and an uncomfortable workshop can hamper your productivity.

Will you have to go all winter without working on your projects? No! Just throw on some warm clothes and spend the weekend insulating your workshop. You’ll be able to enjoy it even when there’s snow on the ground.
