30 adults or 35 children, not both at once.

Thank you,

You are at 14,000 btu based just on sg ft.

Add 30 people and that is another 6,000. BUT this is only at full occupancy.

I would consider (2) of the 10,000. The one would be more of a back up or auxillary...plus you would have redundancy if one ever failed to perform.
