    Pretty easy install with this scissor lift, wish I had one but at the same time it would just sit. Fans up and I'm feeling the breeze!

    Made a purchase today, might be a little bit before I can get it installed but I have it. It's a 2.5 ton trane unit with matching furnace. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The start to the compressor shed
    Mixed 23 80lb bags by hand, it was a great time, at least I got a workout in. The pad is a 5' by 6' 6" deep. Still trying to figure out what kind of in shed design to go with.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Looks good.
    That pad took 23 bags... by hand!
    Dude, that is more than a work out...
    You now can take the rest of the summer off.

    Pulled the form off today, it turned out pretty decent. I give it a week or so before I drill it for anchors. And I plan on mixing up another bag to go around the perimeter base to keep it from washing out from under itself.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Have you thought about adding a switch parallel to the thermostat in case your need to vent/purge the shop?

    I have thought about it but with the thermostat I can turn it on and off accordingly, and works for what I want it to do.
