I’ve started puting in the trim work. And after giving a bit of thought to what kind of trim.., I decided to keep it simple & cheap. If I would get too elaborate with the trim I would find myself cleaning sawdust out of many nooks & crannies. So I chose plain ole 1”X4” lumber & will just paint it white. The front & rear windows are trimmed out.
I installed the 30,000 btu gas heater & it works like a champ. And since the inspector had me put the guard over the gas line, the heater installed over the guard & didn’t use up much extra wall space. Mike, my plumber brother-in-law, sez I did a pretty good job on plumbing the gas line. Since it’s a “ventless” heater there’s supposed to be a vent near the ceiling & floor to allow fresh air in to prevent oxygen starvation. I am going to install a grille on the attic ladder door. And since the electric A/C / Heating unit has a setting to allow air to be blown in from outside while heating (& cooling) I am going to let it bring in the fresh air with it’s forced air fan.
My wife wanted to get rid of the old ceiling fan in our kitchen & I put in a new light fixture in it’s place. The old ceiling fan was only used for the lighting because no one liked having the fan blowing down on their food cooling hot food down too fast & warming cold food up too fast. So, being the frugal / cheap person I am, I decided to modify the light on the fan & install it in the center of my woodshop.
I’ll be continuing with the trim tomorrow & will update you-all later.
