I am also jealous. It is so nice to build your own and get exactly how you want it. My son recently purchased a home that has a separate oversized 1 car garage size shop. I was green with envy since mine is a shared 2 car garage for the past 25+ years.

Great job. My garage is 22/26 , but I'd love to have 24/30 though . Those look like steel trusses . I wasn't aware it was done that way , but looks heavy duty

I don't know anything about CNC router tables , but I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night

  • Thickened slab edges - critical, yet often overlooked.
  • Longitudinal Grade Beam
  • Transverse Grade Beam
  • Rebar Transitions from Thickened Edges to said Grade Beams
  • Truss Diagonal Members CANTILEVERED ABOVE slope of roof.
  • Sturdy Connections
  • Properly Labelled Electrical Breaker Box
Dustin, The two heads thinking together (you and Dad) make a great design team and having my long experience in building design and construction, I saw several things that y'all were EXTREMELY SMART about.

Keep-up the FANTASTIC WORK!

Thanks so much. Couldn't have done the construction without my dad. I can swing a hammer but he is the design expert. I have done a ton of research to do this right. You only get one shot at this.

I color coded all my circuits with electrical tape, then put color tape on each outlet cover so I can avoid accidentally overloading any particular circuit. Put lighting, heater and AC on one circuit and used LED, so there is plenty of power available to heat or cool while the lights are on. I generally have a machine, the dust collection and AC or heat on at the same time. I only have 60 amps available, 100 amps is really nice.

What are you going to do for insulation?

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I used solar guard on the roof. The walls will probably get standard batt insulation at some point. Insulation is low priority for now. I need to get this building ready to move tools into.

We are selling our house in a few weeks and are moving in with the in laws. They are giving us three acres to build our new house on.

The shop will be used to facilitate construction as well as store some of our stuff.

Great job so far Dustin. Running the 220 for the heavy machinery is always a little tricky because it you run it inside the wall it requires that you never move anything very far once hooked up and that you never replace it with something that requires more current draw and a larger size wire. For those reasons you may want to consider running those circuits on the face of the walls with either a wire mould or using armoured cable. If you run them down low they won't be that noticeable.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I currently do not have any equipment that requires 240v. However I will install one plug below the panel for just in case. I'll add more as I upgrade equipment in the future. I plan on making the wall covering above the breaker box removable to facilitate ease of install.
