My shop

Well, it took me 4 months of blood sweat and tears, but here she is. I am going to put an apartment in one end, but I am going to take a break for a few weeks before I start in on that portion. I did it all my self; with help from my dad and uncles on a few things that you need more that two hands for.

It is 75' x 30'. 50'x30' of it will be the shop and 30'x25' will be the apartment. The eve height is 14' only a 1-12 pitch. If I did it again I would go with a 3-12 pitch. The rollup doors are 12'x12'. I have not done the electrical yet, but I will have right about $35,000 in the ready to rock shop once I have the lighting and electrical done. Saved about
$8,500 by putting it up myself.

Yes it is isulated, I do not know what it is called. It is 4" and has that reflective, tin foil looking stuff on the side facing the wall.

It is 100% bolt together. I have not made a single weld on this thing. Had to redrill a few holes, but it really went together pretty well. If I had not been such a tight *** and rented a lift-all for a couple of weekends I could have probably shaved about a month and some back aches.

I got everything from a local shop here in Jacksonville called Berry's Tin Shop. They have been great if a part was missing or wrong they made it right with no fuss. They helped the first timer through the erection process (insert your own erection joke here). I would come to them and ask what to do next, what is this part for, what is the best way to do this, and they would help me along. Some times a little hard to get a hold of them, but it is worth it. Also does not hurt to be the cheapest place around.

In case anyone was wondering, the slab was about $9,000, red iron, sheet metal, trim, insulation, chicken wire, 1 walk door, and 2 rollup doors was right around $20,000

Very nice. Just had dirt hauled in and leveled for a 40x60' shop in the back yard last week. Had to elevate the site 3' before I pour the pad. Nice looking shop.

Looks good man. Ive heard good things about Berry. Interested to see your apartment layout. Im still not done with mine basically cause Im lazy.

Details on your apartment?? Wood stud or metal, things like that.

Heck I need to just run over there and check it out.

I am pretty sure it will. It is a little over 15' at the peak. I am planning on putting in a two post lift, but is will likly be about a year before I get to that point.


Thumper, I remember seeing that you had done something similar. PM me your number; I work over in Palestine, and would like to see what you have going.

As far as the apartment, I keep changing my mind on the layout. I swear I have drawn it out 6 diffrent ways. I might try to flip a lake house before I build the apartment which would push it off for another 6 months to a year. I will be using 2x4 wood studs for the interior walls, but on the perimiter I am going to install another perling and use a combination of wood planks and rustic tin. I can see it in my head and it looks great; it is just hard to describe. Whenever I talk about it I see the dought in my wife's eyes, but she has went with me this far, so what is a little further.

Big props to my wife for going along with all this.
