An HVAC buddy knew a guy that knew a guy who stockpiled takeout furnace units from residential homes, swapped pieces & parts to make one good unit out of two or three, and sold them really cheap. Friend bought a big one, set it at one end of the big open shop area, slapped a big sheet metal elbow on top and ran a line to it with a thermostat off to the side. No ducting other than a big elbow on top pointed to the far end of the building, about 7' off the floor. Don't know why a guy couldn't do that with an AC unit, too. Not pretty, but it works if you're OK with some drafts....

    That's along the same lines as I was thinking.

    Got everything primed that needed it with Kiltz primer. I primed the I beam but I think it's going to have to be changed to a normal I beam color just because it looks weird white.I'm going to use 6 led four foot lights for lighting and hopefully my brother is going to wire it up next week.

    That is looking really nice. I kind of like the white I beam. It blends right in.

    I agree, you don't even think about the beam being there. Change the color and then your eyes will be drawn right to it. And that could be okay too! All depends what you like. Remember the golden rule? The guy with the gold makes the rule! 8-)

    Looks fine. You're over thinking it.

    Yep, I'm done painting and it's still white. It's good, it's an I beam, not an accent beam.

    Well, we're getting this thing close wrapping this thing up. I rented a cement grinder to level off a very bad cement pour on the lean too side that was done several years ago.While we were at it we decided to clean up the other side and go over that side a few times as well. It's still not a perfect floor but it suits me well. Now its time to figure out where I want to put everything again. It's going to be pretty much the same except for I would like to move my steel rack and I'm going to put some water in the shed this summer so I need room for a sink. I also replaced 6 300 watt incandescent bulbs in the ceiling with some 300 watt equivalent LEDS that only only use 50 watts each so that should cut down on the electric bill. P.S. Kari was not happy about the candid photo

    That looks so nice! You wouldn't even know there's an I beam there now if you didn't know.

    I think this is going to be the last post on the shed remodel, I think it's ready to be used again. I got Rita backed in to it's new stall, it's kinda nice to have the house garage back for my work car also. I have to work on the fuel tank, driveshaft and rear sway bar soon, other wise I will be putting it sideways in the winter for a bit more room . It's kinda crazy how much pickups have changed in 70 yrs.

    Yes it is. I've been planning this since the beginning. It will be nice to finally use the pit.
