Shop Update #5: 2014 Wrap up, Thank you, and 2015 goals

Please, please, hold the applause. I just couldn’t take another winter without heat, and I have a kitchen remodel coming up that will require me working in the cold, so I finally installed my shop heater. Yep, it took a long time, but it finally happened. After running the wrong size gas line to the shop, and didn’t even measure 1/2 pound pressure at the heater, I decided to calculate what would be needed. I guess it would have helped by reading directions first. But, who does ...
