Got the first coat of most the primer on the walls of the barn tonight.
What a pain, i tried two different sprayers, kept plugging up so i thinned it, still kept plugging the tips and guns.
So back to old fashioned roller and a brush.
Seems even brighter yet..wahoo.

Got my pex/plumbing all roughed in too.
Heres a pic of the pex poking through the wall

Better hurry up, winters coming and projects are backing up..got to admit i like this pic of the jeeps in front of the barn


Thaaasts all for today..been lazy lately.

Already blew 10-12" of cellulose in. Something i noticed while doing that was how ridged the steel was, all screwed off, i could lay down between trusses on the steel, and it held...crazy.

Well been a few since an update on this thing. Still tinkering on it, little by little its getting closer to a semi organized shop.

So what ive done.
Spray foamed around all the doors and windows...wowza what a difference.
Set my compressor up on its shelf up off the ground, and temporarily piped the hose reel.


Also built my shelf across the rear of the barn, 9feet off the ground. Supported from the trusses above. Its a 41"x31' shelf...should holds lots of crap!!



After some serious looking and pondering i have also decided which boiler i want.
From a industrial HVAC pov, i am going with the "hawkins" owb the 2100 good for up to 10,000 square feet.
I decided this because,
Round burn chamber, less welds to possibly fail, plus some effiencies.
R38 foam insulation, ive seen what happens to spray foam over time in a higher heat environment...its not good.
On stilts, plus and minus..air can cool the bottom, which is bad...
Good..less rodent issues...maybe, steel wont rot out as fast..more comfortable loading, easier serviceability.
The warranty is great!
Has induced draft blower, so better faster heat recovery.

So that's mostly why i chose the boiler i did...
Now just need tax $$$$...lol

What makes u see that Honcho?
I understand that "flame" is not heat...but the blower would control the heat better, help have faster recovery times from the huge delta t from the in floor heat.

What would the advantages be to a natural/spring controlled draft?

a natural draft is more than enough to keep up with a OWB. I looked into the forced draft for mine and found that, it wasn't needed, and uses more wood than needed to maintain temp on the boiler. I didn't read through your whole build, you are not planning on running the boiler water through that floor are you? I would hope you would have a secondary system with a t-stat on the floor side. And outdoor wood burners like flame not coals...coals get covered with ash and cannot keep up with demand

Yes im planning on running the boiler water through the floor, of course with a mixing vale to keep the temperature where it needs to be...like 80 degrees instead of 180.
Do i need a secondary source? I would think that if the concrete was set to 80 ish degrees that the whole building would maintain about a 60 degree temp....from what ur saying that's not whatll happen.
