Yes it is, if I can just get the finishing touches done and a wood stove set up, I think well be pretty cozy

here are some pics of my conex shop build. nothing fancy, just roof over my head and a place to store my tools. Luckily, the horizontal hole in a conex can't be seen clearly. I thought i had room, but didn't, and my tractor bucket decided to open an vent hole.

Thanks for sharing your project pictures! 

We have the shop all closed in (tarp for a garage door) and hooked up the waste oil stove, but its not putting out as much heat as I remember. However, I am trying to heat a larger area in colder outside temps. Not to mention, its just sheeted and not sided or insulated yet.

Iv got a big masters DF/Kerosene forced air heater for warmth. But it yet has gotten cold enough to use it. The past couple yrs, late dec, early jan, we have gotten temps in the 20s and last year, my spare bathroom plumbing froze and busted. Im not going through that this year. i will plumb in the air heater to keep my plumbing warm.
I will be doing the smilar as you, putting up a cavas tarp, but i first need to close up the gap between the perlins and conex and wall in the back.

Here is where were at, the actual door is 186x148 with essentially the only self milled wood being the 4x12 header. On the right is a temporary 8 wide wall and on the left is a temporary 6 header spanning the other 106. Trying to make it as weather tight as I can and still be able to move the tractor in and out. 





I fired up the oil burner again today and had it cranking out more heat, then the needle valve got partially plugged and slowed the flow down. Now I need to come up with a filter system to keep the valve clear...

I may have missed it, but what are your shop dimensions? I like the look of that.

Its 24x40 with 16 walls. We needed the high walls to get the 5th wheel in. It also gives us the option to put in a loft. 

I had the oil stove glowing red about 1/2 way up and couldnt seem to get the temp in the shop over 32. So, I dont think my tarp for a garage door is going to cut it. Also, as much as I am not a fan of these new house wraps, I dont want to be trying to hang tar paper from a ladder working by myself. I ordered some 9x100 rolls of home guard with hopes that I can hang it by myself. Then I can start throwing up board and bat siding.
