With an area of 1000sf, a 10’ ceiling and 2 large garage doors my shop is difficult to heat. In fact I didn’t even try. Until now. Okay, does this count as a tool? I dunno, but I bet there’s a few out there with cold shops like mine.
So here I go trying my hand at being a stone mason because to meet code in a garage you have to have any open flame at least 18” off the floor.
I had this stove installed by someone who knows what he’s doing. Needless to say, it wasn’t me.
I did the tile work on the platform using leftover tile and thinset from some other projects.
Now I can work in comfort when the weather is cold. Although it’s been a mild winter, even trying to work when the outside temp is below 50 can be a trial. And I’ve noticed that the large pile of scraps has been shrinking rapidly!
