Finishing the Barn - need advice
Ok, so my major project this winter is to hopefully finish the barn. I have some brick work done in the front aisle of the barn. I'm going to do the joint compound this weekend so that the bricks are set. Then next weekend I'll do another section, set them, rinse, wash and repeat until the whole first 9' x 60ish' is finished. Then I was looking into some type of rubber flooring for the other half of the barn where the cross ties are going to be. Any suggestions??
After the floors are done, I'm going to start inside walls and ceiling. I was looking into the water/mold resistant drywall - but have been getting mixed reviews about using it in a barn. The stalls are outside in the run in shed, so the horses will only be near it when they're in the cross tie section. Do you think it should be ok? The roof is metal sheeting and we were thinking about putting up insulation before making a ceiling, but no insulation behind the walls. Right now the walls are OSB and 2 x 4s. I want it to look nice and finished, but am on a budget. The drywall is actually cheaper than OSB boards.
What would you put up and why?
