I live in SE TN and find that a small electric heater takes a loooong time to heat my basement shop which is not as big as a one car garage. This past winter, I had to use two heaters on separate circuits to heat and still took over two hours to rise the temp 15 degrees. Just make sure you insulate it real good. You might consider a small window AC.
First thing is to make something for her from the new shop.

I have actually decided to go with propane heat. I did wire for AC but that is not in the budget right now. So for this summer I'll just have me a fan to keep cool.

Congratulations. My wife told me to buy a new house for my shop. My garage is split up between wood working and lapidary and there is hardly any room.

My wife still wonders why after I built a two car garage she still has to park her car out in the snow...

I think we need more pictures as an update on the progress you have made.

How about a contest? Name Dale's new shed? And I am not thinking of "Dale's Dog House" ..... That is to simple. Now "Dale's Dungeon" has a nice sound to it.

LOL

got a lot of progress over the weekend and today. Got it insulated on Saturday. Then my dad came out and helped and we got the drywall all hung today. I have pics to upload but will be tomorrow.

I don't know about a name but it is certainly going to be my hangout. I have a house full of girls (3) under the age of 5. Right now wifey is just calling it "Dale's man cave."

Default Progress Pics

Here are some progress pics:
I only took a few pics of the insulation and this was the only one that wasn't blurry. This is standing in the door looking to the left side wall.

Drywall is up.

Looking toward the back wall of the shop. Ceiling height is 9'4" to the middle. The outlet in the center of the ceiling is operated by switch. Plan on hanging air cleaner up there. Have 6 light fixtures. Going to hang 2 bulb florescent fixtures.

Standing in back corner looking toward the front with both doors in front open. Electrical service (100 AMP service) comes in on front corner.

Standing in back looking along opposite wall. The outlet near the front door that is higher on the wall is dedicated vac outlet. Have plans for cyclone dust collection in near future. It will be located in that front corner with dust collection piping running along this wall.
