My shop started out like most, in a small room in the basement. The room was under the garage so there were numerous support poles for the cement floor above. Couldn’t turn around with a board longer than 5 ft. By the time I got a table saw jointer and a small work bench there was no room left to actually work. My sons and I started building this barn about 12 years ago. 3 stall garage below is for tractor, mowers, and outdoor tools. One stall for rough lumber. Second floor is 30×36, nicest thing is no center supports. The barn trusses allow for a room on the 3rd floor 14×36 which my son claimed for a music studio as payment for the many hours of labor. I built the entire building including the cupolla but contracted the metal roof to get it out of the weather in short order. Worked with no ceiling and open rafters for 3 winter till I saved enough to drywall the ceiling insulate and add 8 ft high output flourescent lighting.
