Insulated exterior storage for tools
I'm wrapping up my home restoration and being that it's an old house, there is very limited closet space and very little yard space. My dog asked me not to put a shed in the back to take up what little yard space there is, so i'm thinking of building a storage compartment under the porch when i rebuild it. I plan to build a door hatch into the floor and have about a 3'x8' 3ft deep area boxed in below. The porch will be a screened, but being 3 blocks from the coast in the already humid south, i'm hoping to insulate it in such as way as to protect my tools with motors (table saw, drills, other saws, routers, etc.) Is there a way I can insulate to keep the tools protected? I am thinking to just seal the box up well, caulking all the corners, and maybe putting foam insulation under the porch flooring (which would be the box door) in order to make a good deal from the top. Is this going to keep a good compartment to store tools, or do i need to do more like put a dehumidifier in the box or something else?
