Well Its not finished yet, I have so much going on right now , and man it get expensive, I also upgraded my table saw and purchased a small dust collector I found on craigslist, I got the saw for $175.00 and the dust collector for $75.00. I still need too purchase 2 more windows , finish out side trim work , paint inside and out and finish ceiing and electrical. I am currently running off extension cords.
A little history on original building, its about 70yrs old and housed a mule stable in part of the original structure. It was on the verge of falling down. The house here is over 100 yrs old . Well I started to tear it down and build a new building ,the more I looked at it and thought about it I felt it was best too save it. The bottom floor was in such bad shape I figured the best way was too repost the whole structure. (it use to sit on blocks) Well I cemented in treated 4×4 post. I started in one corrner and worked slowley around using 36 post 1 every four feet. Some are lagged to upper post others use angle plates too nail and screw to upper building. Then framed up 2 foot on center for walls. Inside walls will be covered with 1/4 in birch plywood ,I used r14 insulation in walls and will use same in ceiling.
The floor is 2×6 with 3/4 plywood ,joist every 16 inches , I cemented 3 4×4 post for each joist , and using some old blocks for the building blocked up more for good measure. The floor will be painted with epoxy paint.
Thats all for now so i dont bore you all.I will gladly answer all questions. Pics can be seen at link,could not get them too post. On one end there is a shelter for my 2 riding lawn mowers and access too the double doors to get the big stuff in and out. the shelter on the other end will be lumber storage. Not sure when I will finish the top floor are what I will use it for.
