When I decided to convert an old shed in the backyard into our own workout studio, I knew that I needed to not only wash it, but make it functionable.
The cleaning took the longest.
Not only did I have to get rid of everything that was inside, however I had to power scrub the entire interior just to get all the dust off of the surfaces. I also decided to paint the walls and floor with a protective sealant that would keep the wood in superb shape. Once that was done, I had to feel about how I wanted to cool the space. There was electricity already running to the shed, which was good because it was a single less thing I needed to feel about. I contemplated on getting a ductless machine installed for air conditioning, but it seemed savor an high-priced overkill because the shed was so small. I also hardly needed AC because the temperature was constantly super moderate in the summer. Opening the windows and doors would more than likely bring in enough air for me while I exercised. I did want something though, so I decided to purchase 2 portable fans and I mounted them to the ceiling. They each came with remotes which made it simple to turn them on and off. The fans were affordable and an simple way to keep the shed cooled during the hotter afternoons. Not once have I regretted our decision and I am cheerful I didn’t invest in a ductless system. It would have easily been too much.
