Shop Cooling

Philip Morris
>I am trying to figure out how to cool my shop and was interested in others experience who share warmer, humid environment.

Recently moved to Jackson, Mississippi. My shop is an attached double car garage. I don't think that the subdivision's home owners association will allow a window unit air conditioner. Have been considering one of the big portable air conditioners or a mini-split system. Does anyone have any experience with one of these systems or can offer another alternative that may not be obtrusive to the neighbors?

Shop description:
- approximately 400 sf, with 8' ceilings
- wall attached to house is insulated as well as garage door
- two uninsulated walls are finished with brick on exterior and drywall on the interior
- attic has 9" of blown in insulation
