My wife and I just bought a home.
- I needed a location on the property where I can work out.
The inside of the home is not big enough and doesn’t offer tall enough ceilings for what I do fitness wise. I had plans to build an outdoor deck with an overhead covering. However, saving up the money for that is going to take awhile. Right now, it appears that I am going to need to utilize the outdoor tool shed. The shed features 8 foot tall ceilings, sufficient width and length. This space should work out for now. I am a little concerned about the lack of climate control in the shed. I replaced the windows and caulked and insulated them to prevent outside air from coming in. One wall of the shed was an old pegboard. I ripped down that wall and added insulation. I don’t currently have heating and cooling installed in the shed. I am a bit worried about this. I am located in the south and the heat is just horrendous. It is typically sweltering all year long. I will need to get up especially early in order to work out before the heat or invest in some type of A/C system. In the winter, the chilly weather might be a relief. I do have electrical outlets, so I could run a space heater. I have done some research into affordable types of temperature control and think that I need a ductless heat pump. I want to get the most beneficial workout possible. Since I don’t have a gym nearby or access to any type of personal training facility, I need to handle my fitness on my own. The last thing I want to do is hate working out. I am prepared to do whatever it takes to create a usable and comfortable home gym.
