My current shop is a 16’ X 32’ freestanding building with 11’ interior from the floor to the bottom of the roof joists.
It’s a pole-barn style with rough sawn board and batten cypress siding.
Other than hiring out labor to sink the 6 main posts (rough sawn 6” X 6” X 16’) and raise the top plates (rough sawn 3” X 10” X 16’), I built everything else.
My brother-in-law helped me do the electrical work.
The green tarps have been replaced with double doors; one pair is done and pictured, and one pair is to be done but replaced with a much better temporary setup.
The exterior siding is 8’ tall with 3’ tall transome windows all around the shop.
They’re currently plexiglass, but will eventually be replaced with windows I’ll build.
I’m planning to expand the shop over the existing concrete pad, adding roughly 200 Sq. Ft. of useful space, and using the pairs of double doors on the new wall. Eventually, I’ll fully enclose the outdoor lumber storage that I’ve got behind the shop which is now under a 14’ X 10’ X 8’ shed roof structure attached to the back wall of the shop, seen here:

Here’s what I’ve got so far as seen from outside, then around the building from the inside:
