    Hello

    Well, I finally got the Pelpro Bay View hooked up today in the shed after some real difficulty with the pellet stove appliance adapter!!
    See links below with more pics. Thanks

    I am waiting for an "Open on Rise" Low Limit switch befor a fire it up. It does work!
    I saw it working before I bought it but still there were lots of problems!
    The Pelpro Bay View I got used and cheap so it needs a few things.
    I had to give it 2 coats of paint and new fire brick. Also lubricate the room blower bushing so it starts up fine.
    I also just learned that Aubuchon is the local Pelpro dealer but only their more busy "Service Stores" like the one in Nashua NH and Suncook NH according to the Haverhill store manager.

    I had to build a raised hearth but only had to buy 2 pieces of wood and grout and tile.
    All the other wood included the 1/4" PT plywood underneath it was left over scrap from the shed.

    The shed was built just last fall and it was a scramble to get the electical in a trench just before the ground froze.
    We do need AC for pellet heat!

    Building the shed was fun and seeing other sheds and getting advice here really help too!

    Have to put on the finishing touches but atleast with pellet heat it will be warm cheap heat!!
    The kerosene heat for the shed was getting expensive!!!

    Ok, I could not wait either so I manually bypassed the Low Limit Switch to get through the startup cycle. After that it burned fine!

    Hello pelletizer

    Good question. I used PT 2x8x10s in the floor with 1-3/8" foil foam board for insulation. The floor joists are sitting on 8 solid concrete blocks. Under each block is a 2 foot deep hole filled with 3/4" stone! All the blocks are set at the same height using a Water Level!! No shimming or leveling was needed in building the shed on these blocks!
    The shed does not move!!

    In this thread you can see the base pics!

    Thanks Smoke Show,

    I spend most of my time down in the basement / garage and seeing Don,s shed install really makes me think I should get a pellet stove set up down here.
    I have a work bench, TV stereo area set up down here and the garage is attached off to one side.
    Since pellet stove install 4 years ago upstairs the furnace hardly runs and it is now cold down her in winter.

    2x8x10 and the 2 foot deep hole filled with 3/4" stone "that is one rugged shed!
    I would have to support the floor under my shed if I was ever to install a pellet stove in there.
    Checked your links and what a heck of a job you did building the shed "Enjoy It"

    Oh boy what a combination, it must be interesting in your neighborhood. Mad scientists in lab coats playing with dangerous things. All I've ever had over the years was a pile of doctors, teachers, lawyers, or professors and a few strange tenants the neighbors had. Most of these folks had problems with anything that gets their hands really dirty. Well, I must admit one of the doctors does like to garden as long as she isn't the one digging in the messy stuff.
