Sure beats the Dog House... :thumbs:

BTW it's her birthday today, so I am taking the day off. Made breakfast, Took the Grandson to school, Made the bed. Hopefully I won't need to sleep in either place any time soon.

The new ramp still had enough lip to catch RED's deck so I decided to extend it out. I figured it couldn't be too hard to do after watching them pour the first one. All was going fine till I realized I underestimated the amount of concrete needed. I had two 50lb bags, looks like I need two more and some adhesive now. The 1/2 I did looks pretty good.

Having a cold snap here....
42°(Feels like 37°)
Clear
Wind: N @ 9 mph
Barometer: 30.2 in.
Sunrise: 06:53:27 am
Sunset: 05:32:23 pm
Humidity: 60
Visibility: 10 mi.
UV Index: 0

I had to use my backup camera as my good one is packed in the car for a trip later this week and it is too cold to go out and dig it out.
Running the propane heater on the lowest setting and the electric heater is set to 72, The whole shop is at around 82 or so. The Electric heater only cycles once an hour or so. I think this will work great even on the coldest Texas nights. Yes I am venting with a gap above the roll up door, and a slightly opened window.
This make me think a small window A/C may help augment the inside unit next summer.

Colder tonight (20 or so) , and still way better than the old non-insulated shop. Had to up the propane heater to level 2, but the electric is still cycling to keep the temp constant. When the electric runs it does still vent to the outside drawing fresh air in.

What is the specs on the propane heater?

 

Been looking at them trying to find something that will heat my shack this winter.

 

I have a small one that will run 108 hours off a 20lb canister.  Probably need 4 a month as I will only need to heat at night.  16 nights a month

I want to say 8/16/24 K, as it has three settings. Using it off and on with the lowest setting a 20lb tank last me a month. On the highest setting (all 3 burners) it will burn through a full tank in 12 - 14 hours.

Today, and definitely Tomorrow will test the Heat. Spent most of the day in here, and I have been able to keep it a comfortable 72 all day running the electric and just intermittently running the propane on low, the electric still cycles. I have had to drain the reservoir a few times as it is still humid. After the sun went down it fell into the mid 30's and the wind is howling, Propane is left on low, the electric set to 68. Inside temp still at 72. Around 8:00pm my Grandson said it was getting cold. I set the propane to medium, and bumped the electric to 70. Inside temp rose to 80 within 15 minuets. I couldn't have done that before. He has went in for the night, and I am letting the shop settle back to 72 as I feel good at this setting. Supposed to be in the 20's tomorrow night (arrrrg) but this is way better than last winter.
