Or just build a semi subterranean garage out back, plenty of room to expand!! Or maybe a short testing drag-strip?

At the rate you are expanding, you may need several units! Looks like you will have a really nice setup when it is all done.

It's just a sin what a respectable hobby can do to a fella?

I think the word hobby is shorthand for money and time sucking black hole :laugh:

How True. That's why I now spend other peoples monies so they can live their dream. The oldest lesson of DIY restoration, you rarely ever get your money back. Here's a 74 Z I had over 24K invested in, photo taken back in 1999. I did it over a period of 15yrs prior to 99. I never tallied-up the receipts while it was ongoing but one day I did, WOW.

Got my "honey do" projects done for the week and decided 46F was warm enough to go for a ride, the farmers have been busting their humps to get the crops in,
I'd say they are about 99% done, I hope they did well.
The weather is supposed to tank Tuesday so this may be it for the year but I'm not pushing her into the shop just yet

Yesterday maybe the last day, it was 60 deg.F and sunny but the gravel road I live on turned into oat meal and most of the black top roads were wet with condensation .
Still it was a nice day and there where a lot of bikes out.
The old girl needed a bath when I got home, I wish they would chip our road :angry:

It's a bear living on a gravel road, either dusty or that oat meal you refer to, sticks to Everything! One more day of 60Deg. but rainy today. About time to move/hibernate inside. About on the cusp of finishing the "dusty" work in the garage, just have to finish-out the drywall. Does anyone use a "ventless" heater in their garage with success? My HVAC guy uses one and is going to plumb it to code, i'm still kinda leary about a well sealed garage and carbon monoxide.

I fixed your pictures for you. Next time click on the insert or insert all tabs
Im not a huge fan of the ventless heaters , but they do work safely.
They even make large fireplaces which are ventless for those homes without a way to get a exhaust vent to the outside.
Install a CO detector to moniter levels, but be forewarned that the detectors are cumulative so small amounts from motors will eventually make them go off

From what I've read they are safe and most garages aren't that air tight anyway,
I like my wood burning stove, it's a small Vermont castings that is about 75 percent efficient and it doesn't have a catalytic converter so I don't have to worry about a start up smell .
