just to appease frank, i am in the very early planning stages of my dream shop. so this is why i ask the strange questions he reflected on.. i am not saying it is a dun deal just gettin info and no.s. this red brain runs at the speed of a 386 or for the mac folks 650 quadra. so it takes time to settle in and get acclimated.. so here is another strange question.. heating has been discussed in other parts of the net world but i have differnt twist on it i think. the building, if it happens is around 1400 sq ft. with a ten ft. ceiling. the most econimical floor structure for this is concrete, want wood but that probally isnt going to happen.. have been looking at pipex or radiant would be around 4 zones of that in a concrete bed, with 2" foam under it. told that was the best thing to do have seen it done without any thing but pipe and crete..if i had the wood floor i could go witha furncae in the crawl space or in either floor type, i could hang a ceiling furnace ..propane in my area.. wood heat is great but the insurance isnt. plus you have to feed it regularry.. so here goes the question frank i hope i have qualified it enough for you today what are your heating plants and floor types and why or why not use what you have? thanks for the time.. just assume that the insulation will be adeqaute,, steve will make i do it right
