Can you please provide details on your foundations and concrete wall? Size, depth into the ground etc.?

Was the concrete pour a single pour or two pours?

Thanks in advance

Footings/stem walls one pour, floor second pour, apron third pour.

Seems like 2' footings, but cannot recall for sure.

Thanks for the compliments guys.

This was my heat for a couple of winters before I had electricity.
Worked nice because I would park tractor directly under it & it would thaw out quickly.
BUT.....created ALOT of humidity, so frosty windows were an issue.
Also, the smell didn't bother me until I was working off of a ladder placed on top of a scaffold putting up ceiling panels.
Got bad & burned eyes/sinuses.

Any ventless gas/propane heater is going to introduce a significant amount of humidity into the space. Water vapor is the bi-product of combustion. What concerns me is the smell and burning of your eyes. Get the heater checked!

It was only when working up at the elevation of the heater.
Didn't bother much at first, but I imagine that I eventually had enough carbon monoxide in my system and that's when it began to irritate me?

I always joked that if I would get dizzy and fall that my wife's next husband better appreciate all the work that I put into that shop.
