First off, I’ve very thankful for a shop heater. It’s negative 8 deg. F this morning in Idaho. Without this shop heater, I would be at a complete stand still for the next 3-4 months.I had this heater installed about a month ago. It cost around $1,400. I can’t believe I didn’t install one years ago. They are essential for year round building in Idaho.With the sole painted and textured, I was ready to install the hatches. I applied a generous bead of 100% silicone around the hatch flange. 3/4″ stainless steal screws secure the hatches.I wiped up any squeeze-out with a paper towel, making sure none got on the seal and top flange. All holes were predrilled, so this step went very quickly.
After taking so much time to get the sole finished and textured, this step was like the icing on the cake.
