    Garage in winter

    We use the same ones in the railway vans, pretty good heaters and heats the van up quickly.

    Garage in winter

    Very good point! That sounds like a good idea, I'll have a look into that!

    Garage in winter

    Some great suggestions! Thanks! Hopefully I can get some insulation up on the walls for a reasonable price (not likely the now of course) and I'm planning to get rubber mats for the floor.

    I'll definitely give the gillet a try! I didn't know you could buy that, could come in handy for the golf as well. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Garage in winter

    There are 2 vents at the back of the garage and of course the door isn't airtight so hopefully that would be enough. How does the paraffin heater react with all the sawdust in the air? What are the fumes like from the heater?

    Garage in winter

    I was considering a generator before when lighting was my only issue but I don't want the noise to attract the wrong kind of attention.

    I definitely do not want to introduce any moisture! Thanks for that! An indirect gas heater as in central heating?

    Garage in winter

    Hi all, I've been getting my garage workshop set up quite nicely for the last wee while now, but as the temperature is starting to dip I'm thinking ahead towards winter. My garage is in a row of four, constructed with a single skin of brick with some stramit board on the roof, it has no power...

    Is this asbestos?

    Yes it's definitely stramit board, thanks everyone for your input! Going to contact the council today and see if they'll test it.

    Is this asbestos?

    Thanks for the replies everyone! My Google fu wasn't up to scratch finding that stuff haha!

    Is this asbestos?

    Hi everyone, Having trouble identifying this insulation in the garage roof, this would've been installed around mid to late 70's. Concerned it's asbestos but I can't see this type online.

    Garage lighting

    I like this approach! It's purely for light as I'm not too fussed about power tools at the moment. Thanks!

    Garage lighting

    Thank you for the suggestions everyone! I have a few options to think about there. I think solar panels with the car battery might be the way to go although I live in Scotland and the sun isn't always generous here 🤣 The distance is only around 60m but I'd have to run it by houses, a public...
