I have built my shed now and now in the process of doing the inside, I used a concrete prefab sectional garage to use as my shed it's 10ft by 14ft. I'm currently insulating the walls, floor and roof and doing the electrics. Sorry about mess lol was my workshop.

What would be the best way to heat the shed? I'm thinking of an oiled filled radiator. My plan for the shed is 2x 8ft by 4ft by 3ft, 2x 8ft by 2ft by 2ft and 5x 4ft by 2ft by 2ft vivs.

wow - MAJOR PROJECT mate - but looking at that Tiger in your sig - well stone the crow - see why. Don't forget your expandable foam to gap fill everything that needs a little sealing in. I'll be following this build with interest. I got the use of a double shed recently - but only to breed my mice.

Heating is the main factor to worry about and also a BACK-UP electricity plan just in case of a power cut. PC's can happen at any time - even in areas not prone to the such and it would be more than a loss to think about. Have a look at some petrol generators etc - some are a tad noisy but if it means saving the life of a snake then all is worth it.

I think those oil filled radiators are cheap enough for what they are - and there are lots to choose from on the market - different wattage etc.

p.s -


Have you lagged the roof too yet?

an oil filled radiator will keep the temp in the shed just right they are quite economical to.

Taken the door of today so I can reinforce it and insulate it plus put some bricks under the door as a lip to stop water going in the shed.
