Haven't updated this thread in a while. Thought I'd throw in some pics of where I'm at now.

At this point 24x30 is way too small.

I need to build two more barns. One to hold the tractors and one for the boat. But, there's this thing called money, so I work around the clutter.

@RainMan 2.0 : Look at it this way, Rick, from your comments you likely have one of the coldest if not the coldest shop of all the forum members.

Dustin, you and your dad have done a great job building this shop. I built a shop very s(24 X 32) similar to yours. I blew a lot of insulation in the walls and ceiling. Mine was a pole barn so I had 8" of insulation in the walls and about 18" in the ceiling. In the hot summer time, I could turn off the AC (window unit 110) and it would stay cool all night. You can rent the blowers from one of the big box stores for nothing if you buy the insulation from them. What I am trying to say is don't go cheap on insulation in your shop. I also used OSB board for the shop walls. It reflects light good and looks good plus you have something to drive screws into to hang cabinets. Seeing your pictures brings a lot of memories back, all good. I sure would like to see pictures, inside and out when you are through.

Rick, 26 x 32 would be better.

It would be a major improvement, as things are really tight right now .
My sister built a shop on her acreage,and it was 40 by 60 with 14 foot ceilings . Talk about having decent room. That would be close to my dream shop
