Finishing a cold storage room as a bedroom


Hey. So I am wanting to finish a cold storage room so it’s just a regular room. A few questions regarding insulation.

Is the spray foam the best option for this metal roof?

Do I just leave the sheeted walls the way they are?

Just trying to figure out best way to finish this way properly.

Before you do anything, what is your plan to meet code for a bedroom - things like having a closet and egress?

So I donít actually care to make it into a bedroom. I just want it finished. Technically I am putting my ball pythons in the room.

Re: Finishing a cold storage room as a bedroom


Not directly related to your question of finishing and insulation but you need to consider heating and ventilation, including both supply and return air.

So beating j just planned on one of those oil heaters. Not really sure about return air.

Maybe this is a bad idea all together

I have no clue what manner of environment pythons need (and plan to keep it that way), but ventilation would seem important, otherwise it's the same air. Assuming it's a concrete floor, that could affect both temperature and humidity. Most enclosures built as cold rooms usually have insulated doors (like exterior doors), up here anyway.
