I started the permitting process for my woodshop in August 2007. Finally, in early January I got my permit from the city of Draper. I started construction shortly after I got the permit, the constant snow in the valley has made it a little slower than I was hoping for. Design summary includes, 1012sqft on the 1st floor with a finish room, mechanical room and small bath (enter from outside or inside, can be a changing room for pool later). The 2nd floor is 625sqft with a full bath and two rooms. Some of the things I am doing – Mechanical room with sound proofing for cyclone, air compressor and tankless water heater. Natural gas line with ample supply for heat and future pool in the backyard. upgrading house from 200 amp service to 350 amp service, 150 amps will serve shop. 11’6” 1st floor height. Hanging pendant outlets in stragegic locations to limit number of cords on floor. Iron piped compressed air in drywall ceiling for distribution. Tons of lights. Two dayton industrial exhaust fans.
It’s still in the framing process, but I’ll try to get pictures up soon.
