  • Shop Renovation

    Haven't checked in for a while. Been overhauling my shop. It's close to being done. 480 sq ft of 5/8" code X drywall on the ceiling broke my back. New roof done, all new electrical with lots of outlets and 220volt done, new big ass compressor done, just need new insulation and 1/2" code 30 drywall on the walls and paint. Considering built in air, looked on You Tube for basics, need real world advice. Been away from my project for 2 months. Itching to get back to it. New shop will be bitchin.

    And I thought moving three shelves around for the first time in 6 years was a big deal! I bet you'll enjoy the new space, especially the insulation if you didn't have it before.

      Try Kitplanes April 2020 issue, page 70 might help.

        I'm gonna be cutting in for two window style AC units to cool my 1200 sq ft shop. Much cheaper than forced air/central air type system.

          You might also consider a mini split for this application.

          mini-split is at least $1500 installed. I can do two window style installed for under $1k.
