Great shop space but this is the first time I've ever seen an enclosed pole barn. Everyone I've ever had just has the poles and a roof

One more thing: I really admire the workmanship. For instance, the perimeter of the tongue and groove ceiling is without trim, which is only possible when the work has been done with the greatest precision. I'm a sucker for details like that.

Thank you.
This subject really needs far more exposure, and especially on a far reaching site such as houzz.
I'm still surprised how many people in RL give me the "DUH ?" look whenever i mention it.
Correctly planned and installed can provide extraordinary energy savings.
It would be an excellent indea to have a more in depth article or series by a specialist in matter ie. : compare qualities of different materials, optimal placing.

The material par excellence has always been earth as shown in this article, compressed earth bricks, baked brick and terra-cotta tiles, although these last two a second choice to diehard eco builders because of their not so good footprint.

Up until a few years ago, concrete was an absolute NO at any cost, a; because of it's disastrous footprint and b; uninteresting thermal performance, (not forgetting that it doesn't "breathe").
So i'm wondering if composition has vastly evolved or if this is another greenwashing affair promoted by the cement industry and barons.
