I have a hot tub.
I can sit in it for hours thinking about my motorcycles.
Careful using one of those propane heaters inside. I've got one that looks alot like the one above and it doesn't give off much fumes at all. Maybe yours is malfunctioning?
There have been lawsuits related to CO poisoning/death with Coleman propane heaters. You might consider buying a CO detector, just in case...
Nice design Ted. Your garage is half the size of my house. And after the epic kitchen remodel, my narrow 1 car garage is now a 1/2 car garage.
My garage is half the size of my house, too!
I'll induce a little more jealousy:
I have yet another garage directly behind that one, though it's just a fabric-covered quonset style structure, with a dirt floor. It's good for keeping a few vehicles out of the weather, cheaply. It's one of these:
Yeah but your "other" vehicles are all British and French and should be used to bad weather.
at least they're not two PT Cruisers
How did you manage to get that past the investment committee?
And for F's sake, TWO PT Cruisers. Fo' shame...
Easy! I promised to sell a motorcycle to help pay for it! (I never mentioned anything about refraining from buying another motorcycle afterward . . .)
. . . and those PT Cruisers are not mine. Just a stock pic from the manufacturer of the garages. Ben's mostly right: The thing is full of old British and Swedish and Italian cars. Nothing French, though.
Brain fart. I was thinking you had a Fiat 124 spyder or 2, and I had "F" for Fiat in my head, and typed French where I meant to type Italian.
"PT cruisers are not mine....stock photo...." Yep, that's what they all say.
has low oxy shut off. used it as heat in my enclosed trailer as i camped with small fresh air inlet. No problems. sometimes propane heaters will create condensation inside the area. Even in our drier climate.
I would opt for a double barrel stove if i had a shop... burn paper scrap wood etc
Good to hear. I was thinking of buying a Mr. Heater, but read a review saying it wouldn't work at over 6,000' elevation. :huh That just won't work, obviously.
AH that was a relief to get out and play for a little. It was a little up on P2P and there was some ice and snow on the road up Coal Creek.
Boulder creek was even a bit icy. Hey is was a balmy 26 degrees up there. oser
That is all.
Don't waste you time with a Mr. Heater. At elevation they just don't work. DAMHIK:
guess the heat from mine here at 9375 feet is just a figment of my imagination!
You must have the special one then J They sure did not work up at the cabin at 9200'.
Well OK. We had four of them up at the cabin and one did work. I have no idea why the one would and the other three would not.
One of the ones that sits on top of a propane bottle would work good for you. Just remember not to burn up all your oxygen and die. That would not be a good thing.
This is not reassuring.
Not sure what to think. I've been wanting to get something that could run off of propane, could work at altitude and would be safe inside by Flip-pac truck/tent camper.
Any thoughts on these ?

The world is gonna end. The Broncos are beating the Chiefs 35-10 @ halftime. Was 35-ZIP @ the 2-minute warning.
I have a Mr. Heater in my 1000 sq. ft. garage, like the one in post 3084 (but 3 heads). It replaced the kerosene heater that was choking me. No fume problems so far. I tried all three burners once or twice, two problems: too warm, guzzled propane. I dress warmly and have the heater within 8' or so. When my fingers won't bend any more (don't hurt, just won't bend), I hold them over the heater like a campfire. Good for another half hour. And who doesn't like a campfire?
You can run one, two, or three heads at low, med and high. One valve for the three heads, so all have to be on low, med or high. 8000-42000 btu
It will run two burners on medium for two 10 hour days on a 20# bottle.
I'm at 5800 ft.
Edit: flashback, it also worked fine at 8200 ft. Cooke City, Montana
I have 2 old 16 ft. garage doors, would I use this in a camper? Maybe to knock the chill off, paying close attention.
My garage must be vented so well that I don't notice issues with fumes or oxygen using my propane tank mounted heater. And I've used my Mr. Heater at pretty decent elevations without issue. Maybe I'm already half brain dead.
Duke - get a pot belly stove & feed it what ever. Junk mail, beetle kill pine, etc.
