ISO 1 inch foil covered insulation board for my hexayurt

Post by chicagohunter » Thu Jul 29, 2010 4:13 pm

I would like to think that after I get off the plane in Reno, I'll be able to walk into Home Depot and pick up 12 sheets of insulation board to make my hexayurt. My friends in Vegas tell me that I will be shit out of luck.

Any suggestions? I'll be driving to BRC from Reno, thought there may some place off the beaten path. Cheers.

Have the order made for you in advance with all of the gaffers tape and other crap you will need and you should be golden.

Home Depot should have it in stock. They do here in LA. I think what they sell is called R-Max. Why don't you call over there and check?

I doubt you will be able to find the 6" bi-directional filament tape anywhere locally.

We had to order it on-line from http://findtape.com

IIRC, you can order on line, for pickup at the store.

Use the commercial sales desk

Post by TopHat » Tue Aug 03, 2010 8:52 am

Call the store you want to buy from and ask for "commercial sales" or "the contractors desk."

Talk to the human, and specify exactly what you want. This dude will be busy, so already have part numbers from the web site. The store will have gather your order for your and have it waiting at the contractors desk. Walk in, make one payment, walk out.

I do this at the Fernley Lowes, but should work at any Home Depot or Lowes.

Here's the link on HD http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/sto ... ogId=10053

The one that is available at our stores is the one that costs $18.30. That's what we used for our Yurt. http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1vZ1 ... ogId=10053

It helps to speak the lingo. I called around asking for brand names as on the hexayurt site, but got nowhere. I found that if I asked for:

1 inch polyiso foam board with aluminum facing

I got what looks like the right stuff.

Yea, I never could find the stuff on the Hexayurt site either--including the tape. I never knew the correct generic name, but it was sort of obvious when you saw a facsimile at the building supply store.

RMax source in Reno

Post by big baby jesus » Thu Aug 12, 2010 8:46 am

Capital Plywood in Reno is the distributor for RMAX which makes a product called TSX-8500. I called the RMAX people and they said this is the product that is intended to be used with the shiny exterior exposed.

Capital Plywood's number is 775-629-4494

They hooked me up with a local lumberyard that can order it.

One more thing...

Post by big baby jesus » Thu Aug 12, 2010 9:19 am

RMax in Fernley (outside of Reno) sells seconds. 1" sheet goes for $5.12 and 3" goes for $14.40. That's all they have right now and they have a waiting list for 1.5"

They don't designate the product, just shiny aluminum exterior or not.
