Default 24x30 multipurpose shop

After joining, I haven't posted much. Just wanted to share what I've been working on.

The shop is 24x30 with 12 foot walls. This will be used as a multipurpose shop as I dabble in several hobbies including woodworking, auto mechanics and welding.

I had the slab poured by a contractor and all the framing my dad and I did. I've done the electrical myself.

The electrical is feed with 100 amps.

Best part is, my build cost is right at 14 dollars a square foot!

Anyways, on to the pics

You are going to have a super nice building there. Looks like you are doing a great job.

Did you design and build the steel trusses or buy them? How did you lift the trusses in place?

Keep the pictures coming,

Herb

Very nice . Liking the electrical outlets . Lots of them and high ,looks like 4' high?
I see there 20 amp also . Another good idea .
Adding any 220 outlets?

Another thing to consider . Cat 5 from the house for Internet . Pre wiring alarm reeds and motion. Rg6 for the 42" flat screen

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Thanks for the kind words.

My dad and I built them. They are his design. He does stuff like this by trade.

We built them in place so not much heavy lifting required.

The outlets are 48 1/4" inches from the floor.

Each 30 foot wall has 7 outlets on two separate 20 amp circuits. Every other outlet is on a separate circuit.

240v outlets will come next. Still have to decide where I want them.
