I swear my tools multiply when I’m not looking. After looking over my city’s building codes I saw that I can have a 10×20 barn without a permit. I bought a second kit just like the one I built in 2008 and added it onto the back of my current shop. I’m about 2 months in on this project so far(I can only work on it on the weekends). It’s still a long way from being done but I at least have a roof of sorts and I plan on adding some windows to the building to let more light in. It’s weird to think that 8 years ago I could put all my tools into a small box under my bed. Now I have a full assembly room bursting with tools and half my house has equipment spilling into it. The shop itself was stuffed to the gills.
I added some trim to both the new and old halves when im done it will look like an old german timberframe.
one 10×10 building. some assembly required
laying out the foundation. I forgot how much I hate hanging floor joists
I seriously hate hanging floor joists
Sealing the new floor with some mis-tinted exterior paint so they are less likely to crumble like the floor in the old half of the building.
almost ready to put the final wall on.
I left the studs on the original back wall for now. Once the loft is shored up the studs will be removed.
