I think last year was like a tank and a half? We filled up this summer when it was cheap and prepaid for some also, will have to check how much is still in the tank. We keep the shop 42-45 and the loft is set lower right now about 50 and then kick it up if we are working out there.

It is a 1000 gallon tank. The whole building has a layer of 1" celotex type insulation that is taped on both sides so it is kind of insulated and then 6" of batt insulation everywhere else except whats left to do in the ceiling. Have 1" under the slab also.

I like the steel trusses it gives you a nice vaulted ceiling lots of clerance if you needed to lift the boom up on a machine or even tilt up a dump box.

The problem with a shop that size it sort of collects things and before you know it the shop is full you need to build another one
