    Default I really hate this guy J/K

    This guy live less than 40 miles from me, and I never met him.

    Well that is going to change as soon as we clean up the ft. of snow we just got.

    Default My little workshop

    I like that guys garage! I guess I have a lot of work to do on my. Mine is an ongoing project. Seperate out building of 16x24, I installed seperate hydro (100 amp service) and panel. Insulated and vapour bariered, 1/2 OSB on walls. Installed work bench (heavy gauge steel sheet on top) New doors and windows. But no heat yet still trying to decide. Any suggestions?

    Cableguy , are you asking for suggestions on heating the place or types of heating ?

    Cause I gotta say theres 3 things you can never have too much of in a garage

    Space - the more the merrier

    Light -gotta be able to see

    Last but not least WARMTH .. nothing worse than being cold doing what you have to do

    This guys garage has that radiant heating, said he pored foam over the original floor, then the tubing and concrete over that.

    It is supposed to very efficient and I do know a appliance store in town that has one and loves it. I walk around in my socks in there when its -20 f and its warm.

    No more cold feet. I would love to do that in mine.

    They are more expensive to put in but dam nice.

    Before I say this I want to put a disclaimer on it, I am not suggesting this as an idea! I know a guy who puts racing fuel (alcohol) in a large flat pan and lights it on fire. He claims that it provides just enough heat before going out. Helps on those really cold days here in texas. (40 degrees ) I have personally never tried it but I guess if you have really good homeowners insurance than go for it, you might even get a new house out of the deal as long as they don't find out you set the fire!!!

    First I guess I should apologize for robbing your thread 84fiero123. (next time I get my own damn thread) and Jay is that where they get flash in the pan...LOL. My shop can get down to -20 F in winter, (thats friggin' cold) even infloor heating would be insufficent at that point. BTW the insurance company would love me to explain the open flame thing ...LOL
