Looking great. Way to go.

I don't have any friends that are young enough to be of help.

All my friends are aging out. Most that can help at in their late 50's or 60's and even 70's.

Did your wall sheets come completely pre cut to length?

Yes thankfully all my tin is pre cut to length. Today I pressure washed the frame and about half the floor. Installed about half the base angle for the walls.

Did I mention I had to haul in my water because I don't have a well yet?

There are people my age that can still make things happen. Just rare and the one I know works two jobs in industrial maintenance and is a mechanic and tree guy and drummer and blacksmith on the side. He stays busy.


Anyone on here have experience with wall furnaces? I don't want to go with electric heat on my house. But my design doesn't really leave much space at all for ductwork. Pretty open floorplan. Cooling will be via a mini split ductless system. It's only 1000 square feet after all.

Guess you should have placed three or four 55 gallon plastic drums out a few months ago, they would all be full now.

Heat pumps do both with baseboard units, or a small boiler propane fired.

For your living area the wall furnace would work. They aren't cheap, but they do work. Intake and exhaust through the same basic hole in the wall. They wouldn't work that well for the work area, if the door keeps opening and the insulation isn't great.

Maybe a 2 ton package unit with heat pump? Be about $2000ish and will require a 12"ish duct in and out...

Keep up the good work--you're making killer progress!

Depending on heat source, if you’re doing gas or propane, what about a fireplace? Would a some looks to the living space.
