Heated Garage

So a year ago I acquired a gas heater and got it hung by a friend of the family electrician. Since then I have been asking him to finish the install. So my father in law came over yesterday and helped me finish the install. The heater was hung and the exhaust/roof pipe was already done. So yesterday hooked up the gas and the electrical and the thermostat. I am chilling RIGHT NOW in the garage at a comfy 70 degrees. Its fucking awesome and a good chill place away from the screaming kids.

sweeeeeeeet.

awfully nice to have warm tools to work with eh? I've always found that even if the air is cold, aslong as the tools and the floor are warm it's very bearable. When you're holding onto cold tools tho you get cold mighty fast.

Be prepared for an increase in heating costs if you run it that high. Friend of mine fully insulated his garage and put one in. Keeping the garage at 50 degrees in the middle of winter doubled his heating bills.

Hell, might be better just putting in a wood stove if you have access to plenty of wood.

wood stoves are the shit.

I'd trade my electric stove in on the wood one we had in the farmhouse when I was a kid any fucking day.

Altho chopping wood when it's -30 sucks, and there never seems to be enough chopped in the fall.

My GF's Dad lives in an OLD Farmhouse out in the middle of nowhere. He has 2 wood stoves in his house and he heats the house all winter with usually just the one in the living room. If it gets REALLY cold then he'll burn both. Cutting wood can kinda suck yes, Fortunately he buys bundles of wood from a neighbor nearby for pretty cheap.

I love wood stoves.

ya there's something about a wood stove, I dunno man, sitting down to a warm drink at the table with the wood stove crackling in the corner is something I really really miss actually. And ya, these days you can often buy the stuff cheap enough by the cord.

I agree. I have an Electric Fireplace in my place and I will admit, I love it. Especially right now as we speak because we are in a Blizzard warning and it is snowing and blowing like a mofo right now. I love sitting on the couch, fireplace going, blinds open watching the snow, watching a movie and drinking a cup of coffee. It's a great feeling. Only thing that would make it better would be a WOOD stove/fireplace.

Hows the weather up where you are at right now? We are getting hammered.

Tell us how you really feel.

No I hear ya. I don't have a sled but if I did, I'd be frustrated to see everyone else getting snow instead of the people who SHOULD be getting the snow.....YOU! lol

Atleast where you are from, you KNOW you are going to get snow, unlike us. I don't mean that literally, we ALWAYS get snow, but not usually enough for the riders, or if it is enough, it doesn't stay long. Most people around here take vacation time to travel to Michigan just to ride.

The last couple of years we have gotten some good snow but I'd say for a good 6 or 7 years straight before that, our winters were so mild that most dealerships were selling Brand new 10,000 dollar sleds for 4 to 5 grand. It was bad. If i would have had the money at the time I would have even bought one at that price.
