After years of working in a dirt and gravel drive, I'm getting a garage.
Right now it's a blank canvas; not insulated or anything. But I've got plans.
Ideas and plans.

I'll have some photos to add here pretty soon.

Barring incomplete burn, the byproducts of burning propane are carbon dioxide and water. Same as what we humans emit while breathing.

Absolutely positive.

If there's an incomplete burn of propane however, it can produce carbon monoxide. An incomplete burn would be caused by either too rich or too lean a mixture.

Propane and natural gas stoves/ovens/ranges have been used in millions of kitchens for decades -- none of those are vented.

BUT . . . if you are using it in a confined space it can lower the oxygen level (not that you would suffocate), but it can lower it enough that you start getting that incomplete burn and carbon monoxide becomes a threat. I assume this is what you are referring to. I don't know how much of a real world threat it is, i.e. how many people have ever died due to a propane heater versus others. But I don't think it would hurt to have a CO detector if the heater itself doesn't have a low O2 sensor. Venting can help alleviate the loss of oxygen, but if it is a larger space it may not be needed.I know I personally won't let my propane tent heater run all night when camping with my son, even though the tent vents and the heater has a low oxygen sensor. But others do it regularly.

Agreed.

1st thing I saw were the TWO reel-to-reels.
I couldn't have a garage like that, I'd never see the wife and kids.

Pioneer RT 707s
Cassette is the matching CT F1000

This is an old pic, now have 2 of the CT F1000's as well.
Additionally, a Technics SL 1600 turntable.
Receiver is a Sansui Pure Power unit.

All vintage '78 and restored.

The only non vintage stuff are the Klipsch speakers.
I can dim the streetlights if I crank it up...
