    Insulate the heck out of it for thermal and noise. Make sure all interior partitions are 20ga or have a ton of channel to brave. Load bearing walls need to be sized and engineered for loads. Prepare to pay a good bit more fore the framing. There’s a lot that goes into LGMF that I can’t go into because it’ll take a while.

    PM me what specifics you have and I’ll answer to the best of my ability, did that crap for a long time.
    Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal? I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

    You ain't gotta worry about bugs and such eatin the wood. If I ever had to build anything again it would not have a piece of wood in it.
