This is just to show some of the things that you can do when you design your own shop.
I knew that I wanted storage in the attic so I had the roof trusses designed with an opening in the middle. I basically told them the span (24 feet), and the pitch (the same as the house) and they designed the biggest possible opening in the middle or the truss. It came out to 9 feet wide by 5’10” high. With a shop length of 40 feet that gave me 360 sq/ft for storage.
I also wanted a small office as a “clean room” for my small projects. It didn’t turn out that way. Dust just seems to appear from nowhere. Oh, well. It has it’s own AC in the window so in the summer I don’t have to cool the entire shop just to work in there.
