Some final pics of the new workshop. It took a few months but finally got everything in and set up. After much debate about heating, I decided to go with a 5000W electrical heater, along with a small pellet stove. Living in a rural area I was limited to electric or wood heat. I use the electric heater to bring the shop up to a reasonable temperature and to keep it above freezing at night, and the pellet stove to maintain the temp while I’m working in the shop. Seems to work well so far, we’ll see how well it performs when it is -30…
The ducting is 6” quickfit duct from K+B duct; the initial cost was steep, but it allows me to reconfigure the shop if I need to, as well, when/if I move again in a few years it will be easy to take with me.
The lighting is less than ideal; I had asked the electrician to put in 8ft banks of fluorescent lights, somehow he translated that to 4’ banks.. I’ve left most of them up but will slowly replace them.
Thanks for looking!
