« Part 1: My New Shop Part 2 of Shop Remodel Project series Part 3: Dried In (almost) »

Well, I got my ceiling joists and rafters up now (4/12 pitch). Didn’t go with trusses because I wanted to do everything myself. The rafters are 2×6 and on two foot centers. The strips for the metal roof are going to be 2×4’s. The height of the ceiling is 10 foot and the outside measures 24×24. I just washed the walls to get ready for painting. I’m leaving the rafter tails exposed and painting them.

Looks like it’s going to be a great shop in one beautiful spot.

Looking good. I’m really jealous of your build. I have a really nice pole barn for my shop, but would love to have a building project like this. Enjoy.

Looking good….

When you filled the block, did you put any re-bar in? It makes a huge difference!

Are you going to sheet rock and insulate the ceiling? If not, do you have a plan to deal with condensation?

I think you’ll find that 24×24 is a good size for a shop. You’ll be able to do a lot of great projects in there.

Yes, I put rebar in the blocks and existing slab. I’m leaving the ceiling joists exposed for storage. I also have a dehumidifier that I’m putting in for condensation.

This is very interesting. Great work! That will be a very nice shop and I love it nestled in the trees. Tell me/us more about the structure? It looks like you’re renewing an existing structure?
