Is it warm in your garage?

Recommended Posts

hamman01

I guess I am lucky. I have two garages, one attached to the house and the new garage unattached. I have heat in the attached and no heat in the new garage. I have already started to get projects together to finish before summer gets here. Hope everyone gets relief from the cold and snow soon. Roger.

I've decided I am going to keep the 716H set up for winter and use my 712H for mowing. Getting tired of switching plows for mower decks and taking chains on and off. Yeah I know I will still need to do some of that for maintenance but I think I am ready for dedicated plowing and mowing machines.

I have a couple of deck spindles to rebuild, but I also have the backup push mower in case I don't get my act together on my deck.

We still have a lot of snow to melt.

I have a throttle cable to install, hydrolift to install, motor to swap. All done when I back the truck out of the garage. Need a bit warmer temps.

I think I will wait to put the coil in my b-10 blower tractor

and do a complete redo on the old gal.

I have used and abused it so I owe it a rest.

I put the blower on Old Smoky,and will redo it later this summer.

If this winter last much longer I'll have to rebuild the whole

fleet.

Well at least I got the blower rebuilt,the bearing I got from

Motion Ind. fit perfect and that sucker really throws snow.

P.S. No my garage is not heated,but I think I might have

raised the temp. a couple times when thing didn't go just right.:D

Did I happen to forget the rebuild of the Weed Cutter.?AND still a lot of snow to clean up (some more due this week!).Never ends,Wayne

The good- my shop is a steady 62 degrees all winter long, and can fit 4 full size trucks, 3 snowmobiles and 2 garden tractors with ample walking space.

The bad- even though I have an infrared tube heater and 3 1/3 of the walls are

Underground my WPS bill was $641.83 last month for just the shop.

Having a warm dry shop with fridge and bathroom is nice but EXPENSIVE!

id="quote">Boy, that would be nice! I've been moving any 'project' machines over to the attached garage to work on. It's insulated and stays around 35-40 degrees...enough to thaw crap off the vehicles. Feels like spring compared to the shop, which probably averaged a temp of 10* this winter.In lieu of buying and installing a Nat Gas heater, I thought of simply tapping into the basement heat duct, which is adjacent to my inside garage wall. Anyone ever add a vent, into the garage, and let the home furnace pump a little heat in there? I'd love to be able to open that up, and warm the garage to 45-50* from time to time. Heck, I guess I could do the same then in the summer with the AC if I wanted to kill humidity to paint. I wouldn't have a return. In the attached garage I have lots of room...I keep the Suburban, Truck, 2 GT's, golf cart, a workbench with beer fridge, general outdoor items and still have ample room to walk around. I move the the truck outside or to the shop for longer term winter project work in the garage.
