The boys and I built it from scratch and I must have drawn it up a dozen times. Its 36’ by 30’ with 10’ 6” ceiling. The walls are 6” on 16” centers. I used trusses for the roof and ceiling on 2’ centers. The floor is 6” 4000# concrete with 2” foam insulation under it. The floor has loops of pex for radiant heat. I can heat the whole thing with a 4500 watt continuous water heater.
I used a 2 part epoxy with flecks for the floor covering. The walls and ceiling are 5/8 and 1’2 sheet rock
I installed a 1/2 bath with a laundry sink.
The building has its own 150 amp electrical service and I alternated 120 and 220 around the walls and 2 rows on the ceiling.
The air compressor feeds a hose reel in the center of the ceiling, it will reach any where in the room.
Most of the machines are Grizzly except for the drum sander which is a Woodmaster.
I was lucky because my oldest son lives just 5 miles and had a shop in his basement. We combined both of them.
Thanks for looking.
