    How much did that thing cost to put up, wanna come here and build one for me?? That is sweet. I have been beating up the wife for a while now for a shop like that. But I’m thinking 30’x20′ at least. 10′ would work, but may work, but I would have to go 10′ high then for extra storage.

    I did do the doors, though I tried to talk him out of it. They are not exactly weather proof.

    Mark, is there anyway to seal a door like that up? They are beautiful.

    Thus the issue we all always come back to…. at what point is the size sufficient for current needs with sufficient room for expansion… and it always seems like “just a little bit bigger” would be nice 🙂

    Thus, my goal is to continue to find ways to optimally use a small shop. That way, the issue with dissatisfaction in my current shop will be somewhat lessened 🙂 Though there really is no such thing as the perfect sized shop. Unless you bring in reality, at which point it is best to have a shop sized so that you can afford filling it and using it 🙂

    Very nice work shop!! The big barn type doors and black hardware really set it off.

    I’m sure there are, but he did not seem too concerned. We work by the hour for this guy and basically carry things only as far as he wants them.

    This property is a rental now, so who knows what that workshop is being used for now.

    I have found that I just use the space I have and I can be happy. I would love more space to leave things set-up, but that is just not going to happen for awhile.

    That is a bit of a sad prospect, but hopefully the renter is a handy guy and is using the space as it deserves to be used!!!

    Very well done Mark. I truly love those doors, too bad they don’t fit my shop. I didn’t see too many electrical outlets on the wall, was it doe later or the HO didn’t bother?

    The customers neighbor is a union electician and he wired it up after we were finished.

    Wow I don’t know how I missed this thread, Very cool. I like the doors for the look but personally I would insist on a very positive seal. Just to keep the weather and critters out. Great job

    When I grow up I’m gonna have me a shop like that! I’ll probably be saying that when I’m an old man…great looking shop, Mark!

    I’m sure that some of you guys feel this way, but I’m sure that most everyone on this site could probably build a nice shell like this, but either lack the space or the funds to do it. I would love to have something like that. Heck, I use my driveway.

    I use my driveway and garage too. Been seriously thinking about a shop though after seeing this.

    I don’t have the space or I would have had one years ago, Right after we moved into this place 20 years ago the adjoining lot behind us with a repair shop came up for sale for $25,000. The building was really in bad shape though and at the time I just couldn’t afford it, A group bought it and converted it into a Mexican Jehovah Witness Church LOL. Yeah, I made a big mistake on passing that one up.

    I would like a bigger shop at the house but I don’t have enough room to build what I want. So I will stick with the shop I have now – I also spill out onto the driveway at times. Sometimes I also spread into the back yard and I have blocked off the alley once or twice to set up.

    My 2 car garage and shed IS my shop. You mean they’re used for other purposes?!?
