Who cares? If you decide to revert back to a freezer, it will just be a little bigger.

2x4 or 2x6 and some paint is a good insulator. The outside of my wood is always room temp.

i'd say use a 1x4 or 1x6, then foam insulation. Better R value, and lighter.

No, it's a construction adhesive. I've seen carpenters try to rip up a plywood floor and they ended up ripping a couple of inches off of the joists. The liquid nails is very strong.

I think he was asking about the rope caulk. I've never used it, but if it functions like other caulking, then you should be able to cut it with a sharp knife, remove the collar, then scrape off the rest.

OK, I went with silicone and it is drying now. I hope this will hold if not plan B. (no idea what plan B is right now ) I have some 3/4 in styrofoam sheets that I want to use for a little extra insulation. Does any one know how to attach the styrofoam to the wood?

a 2x10 is actually 1.5 x 9.25
a 2x12 is actually 1.5 x 11.15

Thats the size of the lumber before its "finished". A "rough" 2X4 starts out at 2" X 4" then is machined down and sanded "smooth" at the mill and you end up with a 1.5" X 3.5" board which is what you buy at your lumber yard.

best out of context ever

I have no problems with my temperature control or power usage, and I used 1X10 and a roll of this on the inside. an inch of foam is about r-4, this is also about r-4 but is only 1/4" thick and wont get all over the place. what you save in adhesive to glue on the foam will cover a roll of the foil.
