Soo many choices soo little money.
I am in the process of buildin my dream shop and seems like it will take me 20 years to get it done. I guess it is because I am trying to do it without going into debt too much.
to start it is a 48X40 metal sided pole building located in Mid-Michigan, It is a newer building with a cement floor that was with the house we moved into almost two years ago.
The office is 11X24 and has a seperate heater and AC. I have all of my turning stuff in there.
the “Main” shop floor is 47X30 and I just finished putting OSB on all of the walls, the OSB is screwed to the beams that hold the metal siding on. I plan to put studs between the 4X6’s and insulate and then put up ? OSB of Drywall. (decision 1)
I ran a few 240V circuits for table saw and dust collector.
I have put rolled insulation in about 1/3 of the ceiling but $$$$. I may just put osb on ceiling and then blow in insulation. (remember Mi. ). but I need 41 sheets of OSB to cover the ceiling!!!
I still have to figure out what i will do woth the two sliding doors that measure about 10X12. I want to take the back one out but SWMBO says NOOOOO. I like it.
Then I need to find a heater. I was thinking about two. One that will burn wood pelets to keep the temp stable and the other to burn regular wood ( and mistakes/ cutoffs)
I will have a few pics once I figure out how to post.
It seems like this process is a long line of compromises and that is a bit frustrating.
I want this …but I can afford this.
