, NH
United States

I built my Workshop to do many things…
I needed a space to store lots of stuff, work on engines/transmissions, electrical work, do woodworking, lawnmower and snow blower storage and repair, and garden supplies, so I needed a versatile space.

Shed Specs:
16×16
8’10” ceiling
4” Thick concrete slab with 1” rigid foam under for thermal break
2×4 Walls
36” Steel entry door
Vinyl siding with architectural shingles
2×6 Drop down stairs to access the upper area Attic is 7”6” tall in center Opening to attic is 4’x6’

I built the shed myself and the shelving, benches, and cabinets. (This was my first time doing any of this by the way)

Let me know if you have questions or want to see more pics.
Thanks, Steve

Looks like a great workshop with all the necessities inside.
There must be a reason for no interior walls and only partially insulated…................

Yes, I am still in the finishing stages. I have to finish insulation in walls and ceiling, complete electrical and decide on drywall or plywood walls.
I need to wait until spring thaw to dig the trench for electrical. Running 30A of 220v.
Currently working off of two extension cords backfeeding the shed. Its a 130’ run… Lights dim hard when the saw is turned on.

CaptainStu, I feel your pain. Went through the same thing with the ext. cords a few years back when I was building my shop. Took me several years before I could rent the trencher and get a cable in the ground. Ended up running #2 and put in a 100 amp service to handle what I have up running now and for the future. The shop has a second floor I use for a break and design/planning area. Still haven’t finished out the upstairs other than installing the insulation in the ceiling. I do have a table, frig. & TV upstairs for a cold drink or news on the TV.

Hello,

Nice build. Very similar to what I am planning. How did you frame the floor (engineered I beams?)? Also, what is the roof pitch.

Thanks

Have your say...
