Default Julie's Shop Build

Here are some photos of my new shop being made. It's a his and hers shop, my husband has 20'x40' for cars and fixin' things and I have 20'x40' for woodworking. We started last spring:

1. Where the garage will go
2. Weeping tile being laid
3. Dump truck bringing one of the 20 loads of gravel fill
4. Forms and insulation installed
5. Rebar and mesh

(more to follow)

You should have had them sneak the inside wall over 1 foot to his side. More room for you.

Wow. I think the majority of us are salivating over what we could do with a shop like that.....envy is the only word that comes to mind at this time. You are one lucky lady! (worth repeating).

Julie I think I shall find contentment in my 400+ sq/ft shop that I am not quite finished with, if you know what I mean. 800sq/ft that is awesome I too will watch with you--well maybe you'll work and I will do the watching. Have you figured out how you will lay it out? Are you contracting it or do you have a contractor doing it for you. When do you think you will be complete? From experience I can say, hang in there and get er done.

Very nice Julie. So the floor is sort of floarting then? I did not see any garde beam poured or footings with piles.

I assume you are running all the utlities out to it? What sort of power will you have in the panel? 100 amp?

What part of the country do you live in?

You ought to have a web cam set up to record the progress. Have it take time lapse pics. That would be cool.
