It took three weeks for my local oil dealer to deliver a tank and get heat inside my shop, but today I am finally working up wood without freezing my fingers off.
Still as nice as this is, it kind of scares me. While I have a well installed forced hot air propane furnace in my shop now, its still basically a controlled fire. Since my shop is detached from my house by 150 feet, I would like to install a smoke detector out there, but have it make its alarm inside my house. That way if there is a fire in the middle of the night, I will be alerted to it a lot quicker. (My shop will have constant heat).
Does anyone know how hard this will be to do? Can something like this be purchased, or do I have to modify a regular smoke detector? If they do make such a detector, how expensive are they?
