So my "Farret" is actually a Ermines, which is part of the weasel family and are the only ones that molt their fur and change colour spring and winter

Been working on the electrical and setting up some temporary heat for the place.

We kinda took a break over the holidays, and my dad has decided to hire an electrician to finish the inside as we have little clue what the electrical codes are. Probably better off and might get done sooner.

Progress has been slow but I did put my snow machine in there to work on it...that was far better than wallowing in the cold wet snow

I'm sure you are providing enough power to run a large compressor and maybe some electric heat, I would recommend a 240 volt sub panel.

We are going to put a 200 amp service to the shop alone and then still have 200 amp for the house...I know its overkill but I will be able to add anything I want to the grid after that and never have to worry. our compressor is in the basement of the house and we have run an airline through the service tubes we put underground out to the garage. We will move the compressor out to the garage once its finished.

So...

We decided to hire an electrician to complete the wiring. This way it gets done to code and done properly. He has convinced us that we only need 100 amp panel in the garage and 200 amp in the house. This will obviously save us money, which we can in turn give to him for his services.

Also, we finally got the temporary furnace installed just to take the bite out of the air so we can get some work done.

What kind of furnace do you have set up? Looks like a repurposed oil unit. I have a barely used on sitting in my attic. You just gave me an idea,  hmmmmmmm.

Yeah that's all it is...250 (so like $50 bucks American...lol) dollar repurposed oil unit...had the shroud made and guy come and show us how to make it work...a little tweak here and there and voila...heat

I personally think my dad should have put the time and effort into the propane furnace we have for the shop but this is how he works and it's his garage so...his money, his decision.
