Not quite a shop like yours, just a 16x28, full electric, loft, workbench and of course heat. Stick-built on site. I'll dress it up nice though. Lots of new tools to get.

16x28 is the size of the room upstairs in my garage and I can barely walk in there. You'll run out of space quick so I'll play devil's advocate. Bigger is better, ceiling height of 13' giving you the span to put a lift in there is ideal. Pour the pad fat enough to support a lift at least in the center. I wish my garage was at least twice the size, never enough!

If you need concrete guys, builders etc I've got plenty of connections.

What i say garage? I meant shed, at least it will hold me over until i get my shop built. At least now i can get the truck inside this winter.  At the moment i have a 12x12 shelter which is falling apart! At least i'm improving.

My big 16x28 shed is getting there. But when i build a shop in a year or two, i'll contact you for that info.

The shed is on 6" of crushed stone. So i guess that makes it officially just a shed. Plenty of room for a lawn mower and grass trimmer. I can sure squeeze the truck in for the winter. The floor is 2" thick.

Nice! I almost did the same earlier this year but decided to wait until I drop the surrounding trees. Is it a design build shed that you assemble or did you order it and they build on site? There are a lot of shed companies around and I was looking at building one myself vs a barn yard or kloter farms type unit. If I put on up it will free up a ton of space in my garage by moving out the bigger equipment that i don't use as often.

Thanks, i almost went with kloter farms, but they can only deliver up to 14' wide. I want to be able to open both doors and still have room. So we modeled it after a kloter farms design but went 16' wide and used 2x6's (instead of 2x4) across the base 4x4 pressure treateed. Also PT 3/4" plywood subfloor then 1x10x16 boards on top of that. Should be able to put a steam roller in there. That said, i still wish i went with a nice smooth concrete pad, for level purposes, crushed stone settles and things dont always line up. Rafters are finally done and collar ties are in. Cant wait to have a roof!
