Nicely done Bubba!

All the nice wooden cabinets, did you build them or accumulate them?

Bubba, I use a similar stove to heat my house.
I burn wood exclusively, coal work well but was hard to bank for the night. If you get it right then coal is great. But I could not get everything set right.
Nice job, now getting everything placed just right will ne a task.

Yeah I built all the wood stuff in the shop. I had a bunch
of heavy duty rack slides for the drawers. Also the "electronic department"
have a bunch.

I didn't try coal yet, since we have tons to wood around.
Once I run out I'll look into getting coal sine we're now
in coal country after all.. All and all it's a nice stove even
it's a bit much for the size of the shop. About 1000 SQft.

I used PEX. It seem working okay not too long run.
I probably extend later and have a couple of more
outlets even a 30 foot hose can reach everything.
I built an outside sort of side shed for the compressor
and sandblaster. From there the PEX comes through
the wall in a 3/4" pipe. Runs along the ceiling to the drop.

According to Chris the previous owner had a pickup or a camper to fit in
when it was still a shed. The ends were in a way.
