Garage - yes


Heated - no


Vettes just have to toughen up in the cold

It's called an Intertherm. I think it was pilfered from an old house trailer.

FWIW, I don't keep my garage heated continuously. Just turn it on when I need some heat while I'm out there. The garage is finished and insulated so well it will rarely get below freezing in there.

I just rub it.
If that doesn't do it I take out the easy bake oven.

2 car attached garage, but it is not heated.
It doesn't really get below freezing in there.
The cold isn't going to hurt the Vette or the Harley though.

This will solve the cold issue!

I don't think you need a heater, unless you're going to work in the garage.

A 2-ton heat pump...cold in the summer, warm in the winter. Vents at the top of the picture...

Got WAY too tired of working in the garage when it was 100+ and 90% humidity.

I'd have to take a pic of the water heater I use to heat with. I put in Radient heat in the floor. Here is a older pic.

Although I wired for one, I never installed it.

It IS wired for music...and gets used every time I'm in there. With >20,000 songs in my iTunes library, I can listen to music commercial-free for over 2 1/2 months before hearing the same song twice.

I'm in there to WORK...if I want to watch TV there is a 120" projection screen <20' away

I was all set to take a pic of my Bryant 175,000 btu furnace in my garage until I saw RichS and 1991Z07's pics, now I ain't gonna do it. Great looking garages guys, do you actually work on your cars in there?
BTW, I don't heat the garage for the Vette, I do it for me. I did my share of working in a cold garage or worse yet outside when I was much younger.

My other cars just snuggle up around it. They're a little funny that way. I don't trust the two week old Subaru yet.
