    Finally started new shop building

    Time, never seem to have time for my own projects but spent the last few days building the pad for my new shop. Used the 110 to move the engineered fill into place, the Case vibratory roller to pack it down and the 4520 to grade with.

    Took 240 yards of fill to do this, lots of slope. I have an adversity to cutting and filling so the result was lots of dirt. Will add a high carport roof to the high side later so this will work out okay. At any rate did this as a one man job in 4 days lots of seat time and no shovel time, right up my alley.

    This will give the guys some idea of what a landplane grader can do I easily got this within +/- 3/4".

    Hope to get the slab started next and will post pics

    That is going to work out great. Nice job! How big is the shop going to be? I am sure you have every detail planned out. Keep us up to date.

    Very Nice . Do you put a light concrete coating on the edges of the fill to keep it from eroding or being damaged?

    Is this a pole barn, or are you going to put footers in the fill?

    This shop will be small at 30x40x10 plus a covered parking added area on the high side and concrete for front approach. I have had the metal building kit for awhile, it has a 3.5/12 pitch roof with 24" overhangs to match the surroundings and help it appear residential.

    I will use retaining wall block on the edges and this will be under the carport too. Since the slope was so steep I will build a separate parking shed without the concrete floor to park vehicles.

    I will post updates as we move forward.

    Anxiously awaiting progress pics as that was my original size plan..now looking at the stakes in the ground, I'm thinking 30x44x10 (5/12 Pitch and 12" overhangs on the one I had designed)

    That's a good start Steve. I'm looking forward to seeing this build progress.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    I should add that the high side with the berm will get the covered parking area. This should allow plenty of height clearance for the service trucks and backhoe.

    This new shop will be used for welding and mechanical work for the most part. My biggest fear is filling it up with too many tools and stuff then not having enough room to work with left over. I am leary of using a grinder with sparks flying everywhere and burning the place down. At the same time you need the tools handy to work with. Not planning on storing fuel, paints or oils in the new building.

    My existing shop is 22x36 with an 8' door height I hope to keep this for woodworking and storage. This old shop is about 150 ft from the new building and I see an issue with moving stuff back and forth but just don't know what else I can do. I have about two dozen rollaway cabinets which can be dispersed between the two buildings and these seem like they would help with the organization and fire issues.

    I am also considering making some type of roll around back drops to shield the work area when grinding and cutting. I have lots of heavy duty caster wheels to use for this purpose. Would like some suggestions for this.


    I need a keeper most likely, someone well organized such as Randy with a sharp stick.

    How about some of the commercially available welding curtains for spark containment?
