I have radiant heat in my home and run it mostly with an outdoor wood boiler. My firewood bill is $1400 a year on a 4000 sq ft house and 30x 30 garage. I am certain my propane bill for the winter here in northern MI would be 800 x 5.5 months. As back up I have a propane fired boiler. LOVE radiant heat and love the savings my wood boiler gives me.

I've got double-bubble lining my whole building. I also have eaves with perforated soffit so it breathes. It was down in the high 20s the other night and with a single torpedo heater I was able to get it up to 55 degrees.

Thats pretty impressive.....I will have to ask him about the perforated soffit.... I priced some wall hanging box type garage heaters yesterday for like $400-$600. I will be taking that route for sure on heating. The doors on my building will probably not be opened any during the winter and once a week during the summer so it should hold heat well.

I ordered an electric furnace yesterday.... A 68000 btu with a 3.5 ton air mover for $700 (10 year york warranty) should allow me to raise the heat 30-40 degrees in the room. My next question is what wall coverings (if any) are you using inside?

I also decided on size... I will go 25ft wide and either 50 or 55 deep. 12 foot ceilings more than likely with a 10 ft door. If incremental cost aren't to much I will go 14 ceilings with 12 door.

Can I get away with a 12ft ceiling and be able to pull motors or would I need 14's?I am building gantry cranes for motor pulling and lifting the boat off the trailer. I got back my quotes today and trying to get everything laid down. I decided on 25x55 but came in cheaper than I expected so looking at upgrading to 60 if I can get by with 12ft ceiling.
