The majority of my continuous free shop time seems to happen each year in December around the holidays when it generally is COLD in Illinois. I have been tinkering for years with little or no heat this time of year while squirreling away a little cash with hopes of changing that one day. Well, This was the year. I had a propane line dug to the shop this fall and I have been working to Sheet the walls with OSB on the weekends. I blew in the wall insulation this week plus blew in the attic area as well. The heaters were used purchases for 7 bucks and 20 bucks so pretty low budget but work quite nicely. A small furnace might be better. Maybe in time but this will do for now. Not a perfect solution but head and shoulders, an improvement over a salamander and no insulation from years past. Oh...did I mention quieter too! Only 1 degree outside today and I was in my sweatshirt to work. I still have a few wall cavities to fill so feeling pretty good about things overall. I will not heat it all of the time as I am sure it is not that efficient to do so but I can get warm enough to glue when need be. The grain bin shop definitely got better this week! Still a mess of course but that has improved this week as well with new quick rough saw till today, some additional shelving, 5 additional lights, and the purge of many unused items. I will probably be selling spare tools shortly as well to help with clutter. It’s been a good week or two here. Sharing a few pictures and my excitement.
