What a nice space. And the fun of being able to plan exactly how you’ll fill it out. I see you’re in Ohio. It still can get a little cold there especially depending on which end of it you’re at. Have you thought about if you’ll insulate and heat it or not?

Right now, I have no heat or AC, and believe me, I wish I had heat, but that’s a future consideration at this point. just glad to have the building for now.

Howdy neighbor. I’m on 123 leaving Red Lion, heading into Franklin. I just dropped in the old furnace, and it’s sweet, having heat out there. That cast iron gets real cold.

Nice looking building. I like that miter station on wheels. Drop me a PM for directions.

We are close. I live about 2 miles east of Red Lion. I’d love to heat my pole barn (shop) somehow. It’s 24’ x 32’ with 10 foot walls, but no ceiling and no insulation…yet.

Nothing like a blank canvas to start with. Congrats on the new space. For heat I vote a wood burning stove. Ultimately I think insulation and mini-split but that could get costly. With a nice new shop you’re going to make plenty of fuel (scrap) to toss into that stove.

We were losing the Air Conditioner the place came with when we bought 10 years ago. Each year we were having to recharge it, and a few years ago it just quit. HVAC guys said the deal was better to replace both furnace, and AC at the same time, went from 91% unit to high 90’s we are already seeing a pretty great savings on the $$$$$ to heat/cool the house. With the cost to recharge each year, we are going to be square pretty quick, so financially it worked out.

Anyhow it left me with a functioning furnace, so we just popped it in last week. I’m trying to monitor it to get a sense of how much propane I’ll be using, but my Barn=a=rage is 32×48, and I can get 56* in about 15 minutes with the 30’s and 40’s we have been having, so it makes a huge difference.

I can’t tell you how nice it is to go out there, and touch cast iron, and NOT have my arm go numb to the elbow. I can wear a lot of clothes, but if my hands are too numb to do anything, it’s kind of a deal breaker. Plus any finishing, or glue ups, I have to take into the house to the basement, doable, but it will be nicer to keep it in the shop.

Current state of affairs is total shop redo, got tired of extension cords all over the place, and no storage. Just getting back to it, but building cabinets, and trying to move everything to an actual place.
