[QUOTE=NSS;640937] I suspect the winter temperatures in Finland are a little more extreme than we routinely experience here!QUOTE]

I'm fortunate enough to have an 800' plus man cave but for six months each year I have to balance being warm with suffering carbon-monoxide poisoning from the space heater. I generally fire it up for 5 minutes to warm things up and then switch it off before whacking it on again for a few minutes an hour or so later and repeat as required.

If constantly on the move and doing something energetic (no pole dancing set up in the cave) keeping warm's not an issue but I've been giving some thought to installing a wood-burning stove that can take the edge off the chill. It'll mean knocking a hole in the wall and installing a flue of course so if you've got the opportunity to plan something like this before the build stage, you might be patting yourself on the back soon enough!

My workshop, so it has all of the toys stored too

Sorting the home cave with the new crew member, far more fun than sharing it with my hairy arsed beer drinking mates or Mollers

Boats

Not in any order

All expensive to run and mainly high maintenance, but boring without them

One big plus will be a single (double-width) up and over door. Current single width door gives barely 25mm clearance to play with when tubes are inflated so a pain in the ar$e pushing/pulling it in and out.
Planners always take the fun out of things....

Yes, guess we have little different needs. I store my boats always outside, use the garage only for storage of tools, smaller toys and for repair/ modding projects of boats, never had a car inside Would love to have dust extracting system enabling to do heavy duty sanding without filling the whole space with that terrible dust.
The big up and over door might put some limitations where You can put the lifting point inside the roof and possible also how much You can load them(pending on the direction of structural roof beams).

I guess in UK You dont need much heater, insulation would alone already help a lot. I have the main building heat exchanger installed in the garage, that alone almost keep it warm enough during winter. But its good to be able to reach the magic +15 any time of the year if needed(polyester jobs)

Pardon the pun, but I'm warming to the idea of some form of heating. I'm going to look at the possibility of underfloor heating, though the floor loading (600kg through two tyres plus the jockey wheel may be an issue).

Up and over door might be an issue when open, but I'm proposing to install two RSJs transversely, so a lift of the boat (less trailer) shouldn't involve a load of any more than 250kg on each hoist/beam.
