The pink foam board is high density polystyrene.  The polyisocyanurates is yellow or browinish and has foil attached.  The polystyrene will begin to break down at too low of temperature for what you want.

The price of plywood has everything to do with a hurricane heading towards the Carolinas.  

The pink stuff is a form of polystyrene.  Polyisocyanurate has about 7 R-factor.  The Polystyrene has about 5. keep the temp under 160 if you are going to use polystyrene.

Minnesota_boy,  BBTom, hey thanks guys!  

I assume the stuff I use in the walls can be the polystyrene because it will be protected by a layer of plywood, would that be right? Come on, let me get this one!  ;D

Woodchucker,
The foam expert at Owens Corning said that as long as the foam temp does not go over 160 degrees, it should be fine.

Well I think you deserve a break! I don't seem to be able to stump you anyway,  ;D  So I'm gonna get out of your hair for a while and let you get back to normal. But i might be back so don't get used to it. lol.

Thanks so much for all your help, I truly appreciate it.

Isn't it amazing what the approach of a hurricane can do to the price of a sheet of plywood!

Yep, and you can bet if that thing were to run out of steam and never come on land, that the price of lumber wouldn't come back down!

R.T.

If you are still going to install an L50 in the kiln than temperature won't be a major issue.  The max. operating temperature is 120 degrees F.  We recommend the use of polyisocyanurate board because it is a better insulator.  You should have an R-value of 30 in your walls and ceiling.  Building plans come with the unit.

Joe_Beaulieu, I guess what I'm concerned about is when I need to set the pitch in pine and have to have the heat up to around 160deg, it's only for a short period of time and wouldn't even happen that often because I don't do a lot of pine.

I know your plans call for 2x4 construction, but would it be better to build it using 2x6"  I don't want to over kill, but if it would keep the operating cost down then I think it would be worth it. What do ya think?  

Did you guys happen to get any of the L50's in stock or will you still need to order it? Thanks!

You can set the pitch in pine w/an L50.  It will just take a while to bring the kiln up to temp due to the small heater.

The L50's are usually built to order.  We just happen to have one in stock at the moment.

Joe_Beaulieu, you might have misunderstood my question or maybe I just said it wrong. I know you can get the heat up to that temperature, but would the polystyrene type insulation be damaged by the high temperatures if it was being used in the walls behind plywood?

Thanks for the info on the L50 you have in stock, if it's a new one I'll take it, just put my name on it and I'll give you a call, ok?
