The state of Iowa is a land of rich greenery and wide-open spaces with miles of cornfields that stretch throughout the state. A barn, to the perception of most, is the centerpiece of a farm, frequently used to house animals, feed, and tools. However, common barn utilizations shouldn’t limit an owner’s creativity in using the space. An Iowa resident opted to give his new barn construction a different twist by turning it into a “party barn” where he could entertain his guests. Since Iowa’s summers and winters can be brutal, and the owner wanted guests to be comfortable during their stay, he decided to insulate his 4,700 sq. ft. barn with spray polyurethane foam.
Iowa Spray Foam Insulators (ISFI) was contracted for the job, which consisted of applying SPF to the underside of the barn’s roof and the exterior walls. The application also included insulating an attached silo. In this case, the silo stood as a decorative extension that towered over the building, providing an aesthetic and compelling look to the entire structure.
