When our hubby & I decided to put up a barn on the back of our property the people I was with and I knew that there would be challenges. Getting power & water run multiplehundred feet behind the cabin was too pricey so the people I was with and I needed to find alternate resources. Electric seemed the least confusing because the people I was with and I knew that the people I was with and I could use large solar panels on the roof. This would be perfect for lighting & running any power tools that the people I was with and I may need. Water was solved when our buddy gave us a the number of a drilling business that could install a well to draw water for the animals & general use. The largest problem that the people I was with and I encountered was figuring out how to heat the workshop that was in the one area. My hubby wanted to be able to do wood now working & maintenance small device so he would need some sort of heat source. Now, if you have ever been in a barn, you suppose that you entirely can have open flames around the hay & such. A wood stove seemed way to hazardous. Every one of us contacted our local heating & cooling business to find out other opportunities that would task better. They said that there were oil & propane furnaces that could be installed that would task well separate from needing an exposed flame. Every one of us chose a yellow flame propane furnace that could hang on the wall of the shop. It was capable of heating 1000 square feet & did not need to be vented outside. The propane tanks could lay outside the barn & fuel the furnace too. Every one of us bought 2 one hundred pound tanks so the people I was with and I didn’t have to worry about running out of fuel to often. This has been a perfect solution for us.
