Is propane really not readily available or is it just the fact that it costs an arm and a leg to get it to your place and the dealers are picky? A hanging propane Reznor type heater is above the floor and away from the fumes that dwell down low. Unless you have the firewood source right next to your shop and you cut, split and carry it by hand, the firewood is costing you more than you might think. I burned wood in the shop for 25 years and it was good, plentiful even heat, but here in the fairly treeless plains of NWIA I was spending about as much money gathering and processing it as I would have spent for propane.

My shop is a 30X32 with a 14' ceiling and it's very tight and well insulated and a smaller Modine hanging heater keeps it any temp I want. I do keep it warm 24/7 so I'm burning propane even when I'm not in there and when I was burning wood the propane heater kept it above freezing at night. Propane is easy to get in these parts and the dealers don't get picky about tanks. You might not be that furtunate in your area so I might not be comparing apples to apples. Jim
