If well insulated how about a radiant heat application in the floor? I have it in an addition on the lake side of my home and it is great. My hunting buddy has one of those cement homes poured into a block leggo form on a slab and he heats with radiant efficiently. I think it is initially expensive but really nice heat and cheap going forward.

You should really consider a wood furnace over a stove. Not the outdoor furnace, but the inside furnace with blower/s. Although an investment in the beginning, they pay for themselves quickly and last. I have one that's been used for 15yrs and I replaced one single brick. The blower will circulate air. Its not necessary to run a lot of heat pipe, only to the immediate work area. Even just 90 degree attachment to direct the heat works.

Very Nice MD. I will be looking forward to purchasing some of your lube when you're up and running. I'm currently using olive oil as a lube and it gives me the best accuracy to date. But I'm always willing to try something new.

Aint that a pretty site?!! Already had 3 vehicles inside it to repair during a snow storm and freezing cold. 100,000 btu heater running off diesel for now does the job. We hung a big tarp to bounce the heat back towards you and so far, no complaints. Keep the doors cracked for clean air flow and its comfortable to work in with a long sleeve.

Also did a little patch lube testing.

3 days in the snow/melt finally produced some results I was pleased with. I still have a ways to go before I am happy.

Do consider or look into radiant floor heat. Well worth it in the long run.

Was it put up straight? It looks crooked to the horizon.
