I built this 5 years ago and have loved every year. The large side is 30'x40' (Deere attachment side) and the shop side (tractor sleeping quarters) is 26'x26'. All in-floor heat, w/water and floor drains. The shop uses wall mounted work benches so nothing sits on the floor and easier to clean.

In floor heat is something that you have to keep running all winter correct? I am doing some future planning and i would like to have one of the outdoor wood furnaces to my barn, but i fear I will have to keep it stoked with wood 24/7 to have it warm in the barn. Being so large, and air exchange will not be much faster. Any ideas from experience?

Brain, when I was working for my buddy we did a few barns/ houses with in floor heat, yeah your have a water heater/boiler that cycles water through the floor and you can leave this to run 24/7. one barn they/ we did the owner never winterizes his diesel pusher, as he keeps the floor heat on 55/60 in the winter. If I build a barn it will have floor heat.

I keep mine at 55F and run 8-8. Once the slab is warm it will stay warm for sometime. You can always run a 50/50 mix for freeze protection.

Great Building!

The shop uses wall mounted work benches so nothing sits on the floor and easier to clean.
Now, what pic shows this? :mocking: So, what does this all include, grinders, welders, vices, toolboxes?

How did you finish the interior, steel, plywood, drywall, or other? And what about lighting?

You can't toy with us like this. :laugh:
