I thought about the stove but I really don't need it. I would rather save the space. My dad's shop had one in New Mexico, and I loved it. But here, it's not really needed. I have a fire pit in the back yard and rarely use it. The heat pump is a go. I'm planning ahead for a garage apartment upstairs so it will be plumbed and ducted, just not finished out immediately. Planning on a damper in the ductwork so I can heat and cool both areas or just the one being used.
As far as wiring, I'm not the best electrician and will be subbing that out. But I will definitely ask him about that. My immediate plan was to have individual breakers for each 220 outlet.
At the moment, I'm waiting to hear back from engineer. I swear, between local government and inspectors and such, it's a daunting task to get anything accomplished these days.
Life is to short to eat brown bananas!
