White has never looked so right - Southgate Honey Shed Build | JCB & SONS. This project is all wrapped up for us. Good exterior lighting was installed at all the major entrances to the building.
The original building which will be shop and storage for this honey operation is all studded in and wired. The roof was insulated with polyurethane spray foam to allow storage in the open web of the trusses. This part is ready for insulation, vapour barrier, and a liner in the future.
Over the utility room and bathroom a strong floor was framed to allow storage of any items that need to be stored up out of the way. An 8'x8' Steel Craft overhead door makes moving product from the extraction room into the storage area very easy. This also makes the extraction room easy to be contained and kept as warm as necessary to make the extraction process run smoothly.
A belt drive power opener was installed on the front overhead door with keyless entry on the outside of the building.
The extraction room received a Trusscore liner which is made local in Palmerston, ON on the walls and the ceilings. This is a food grade product keeping the room bright and making cleaning really easy. A centre gutter drain was installed to allow for washing the equipment and the room.
10' x 9' Steel Craft doors were installed at both ends. All the framing that was exposed was clad in white steel trims to stay with the white theme in the extraction room and also leave an easy to clean surface.
Insulated doors lead to the bathroom and utility rooms which are insulated as well to allow these areas to be heated during the winter. This way the entire building doesn't have to be heated but the water can be left on in these rooms for the winter.
The utility room is lined in plywood to allow the easy mounting of any equipment necessary.
The bathroom we roughed in for the future will be lined with the same Trusscore product that went in the extraction room. It will allow a place to clean up after the extraction process and will even include a shower.
This wall allows for a bug out machine to be controlled by a wall switch. This machine is used to attract any remaining bees to be collected and safely returned to their colonies during the extraction process.
