First:
I have a westernfacing garage door. So first thing it to isulate the door. Home Depot sells a kit with an R5 rating, but it is little more than 1 1/4" foam with a vynil backing. I was concidering putting some of the r12 rasdiant mylar stuff first, then a layer of pink foam, and finally to make it look good, cover with textured kitchen cabinet covering.

second: My garage walls are not insulated so not much I can do here less than $1000.

third: Roof not insulated. Could put batting up there...still $500

fourth: AC. There are several models of roll around ac units. Frys had one for $379 that is 8500 btu for the size room we are talking about. Main thing about these is that they use a those to duct the hot air outside. So thinkin was to cut a hole in garage door and use a dryer vent for exit as Garage has no windows.

Thats the plan, but its not a cheap one.

Main question was if there are a lot of people who just leave them in the garage and have not noticed a lot of problems with the planes due to major temp variations.

Thanks for any advice people may have.
