    I thought it was a multiple vote poll, so I ticked insulated and fans & heater but only registered as fans & heaters.

    I have just finished insulating the last bit of the workshop so I only use a fan or heating at the extreme temperatures during summer or winter, most of the time I don't need them.


    Maybe a Mod can alter the poll and my vote for both.

    I've got two big 3m x 3m doors that I open when it's hot and close when it's cold.

    The worst for me is winter ... but I have an old SS beer keg that I'm wanting to turn into a heater ... probably be a few more winters yet before I get that done.
    Cheers.

    Yeh I am with Peter here.I have both insulation and fans and heaters.Didnt put in air con as my main door is only a panel lift door the afternoon sun hits,but under a veranda.Peter and myself are in our 60's so we need to be looked after
    aching joints etc. Anyway only a couple of hundred for the insulation and about that for the ceiling fan and wall heater,Just put it down as another tool you have to have.

    I guess having something is better than having nothing: My 'shed' is 3.5x3.5 has a single door, double windows, fully lined, insulated and industrial carpet.

    Oops, and a free standing gas heater.

    I have a friend in Melbourne who has a garden shed like that, she even has a small covered veranda on the front with a rocking chair to 'just sit & smoke' in.

    My wife built a strawbale shed before she built the strawbale house. It has no heating or cooling but doesn't really need it.

    Quite the contrary, Aussie.

    Check these links out

    Strawbale buildings are more fire resistant than conventional building methods.

    I had my shed roof insulated when they built it. Wonderful! makes a big difference. I think any insulation is better than nothing at all.

    cheers

    Yes, for a short time. The more of an air-gap between the tin and the foil, the longer it'll be effective. Set up adequate air-flow through the gap, from the lowest point to the highest, it'll work at its' best.
    I may be weird, but I'm saving up to become eccentric.

    this summer I moved an inside pedestal fan ( cost $15 at Bunnings) to my car port shed. cools and helps with the dust. Why didn't I do this years ago.
