Still learning how to navigate around the site. Tried posting pics in the blog but having problems. Here are some inside shots, including one of two of the roof vents. Will keep everyone posted of my progress.

Thats a nice looking place, a great blank slate to work with. If you don’t mind me being nosy (a similar setup to this is realistically my best chance at a stand-alone shop in the near and distant future) do you have specs on size and cost? Thanks.

Edit: A little more exploring has already answered my first question – 12’x30’ with 8’ walls for any others wondering.

That is going to make one very nice shop I bet…

Have you considered starting a “series” blog so you can tie them all together? That would make it easier for folks to keep track of your progress. And I can’t say for other folks, but I want to see how this turns out!

Beautiful, Looks like you are going to have some fun now. Layout, lighting, dust collection and air supply piping. That ought to keep you busy for a couple of days anyway. By the way, don’t forget your coffee supply, fridge and computer.

Looks nice i keep asking my wife when can I build a shop out in the back yard. I think it will be sooner than later, my shop is in the basement and my planner is right under the living room, so when she is watching her favorite show Criminal Minds, I go down stairs and plane some boards. I figure the noise will get to her eventually and I will get my shop.

Very nice. I’ve been thinking of doing the same so I can re-purpose my garage back to the vehicles (what a concept!) I’d be interested in seeing the inside as you progress. Hope you post more pics!

Good luck!

I have been looking at the same thing. I am going to lose my big shop and will have to do something like this also. We have an Amish shed builder very near by and looks like we can get a shed maybe on a good deal. S shed like this one was runing betwee, $4000 to 9000 depending on what was with it. I would love to keep seeing your progress on this. Did you put it on the ground or a slab? How sturdy is your floor and what was used in it. I have been figuring on pooring a slab and setting it on that, and then doing all of the work inside myself other than the electrical work (poof). Thanks for sharing!

Sorry if I mislead anyone about the from scratch part for me the the shell is from scratch. My other shops were preexisting buildings already and I was limited as to what I could do in them and with them. my disabilities kinda prohibit me from having start from the ground up and saves me the headache of dealing with the city as well. I’m trying to do a blog series but haven’t worked out all the bugs as of yet. But I promise I will be taking pics as I go. I wish I had a video cam to make it more interesting for everyone. This will be a fun project as my income allows me to get it together. As for how it came. I will be finishing the inside myself. I did order the 2 windows which are 24” x 48”, the walls cost extra to have them 8’, the double doors were extra as I had them made 6’ wide. I will have to raise the header to put in the steel exterior doors I want on it. The floors are insulated which was also extra and the floor joist are on 16” centers on the skids and are pretty solid. I also paid extra for the 2 vents in the gable ends and the 2 vents in the roof. The total cost for what I got was $5500.00 which included delivery.
