    Buliding a shop/garage

    Next Tuesday I'm starting construction on a new garage/shop. The structure will be 32'x56'x12' with a 10'x16' overhead door in the west (right side in image below)

    It will look something like this:

    I'll have the site prepped with the assistance of the 1025 by Tuesday, I've been planning the construction for several years so the dirt pad is pretty much ready to go. Last weekend, with the box blade, I ripped up the surface and removed all the grass down to bare soil, now I have to decide on the pad height. We've been getting a little rain, so the soil will be much easier to break up now.

    Down the road I'll put a porch roof on this (north), and in the picture the left (east) side of the garage. The left side will just be covered roof for the stuff you don't want to get sun baked but not garage worthy, the porch on the north will be for sipp'n beer and lemonade in the summer time. The vertical dashed line shows where the wood shop wall is on the inside, that space will be roughly 20'x32'. The rest of the building will be storage.

    We are capturing the attic space, one room with the dormer facing west. My daughter has dibs on it that she calls her "creative space." For the love of god I hope it's not pink.

    The frame of the building will be fairly traditional pole barn construction, posts on 8' centers, trusses on 4' centers, but the 2"x6" girts will run between the posts horizontally 2' OC to which the sheathing will be attached. It will be sided as shown with Hardi plank, or something equivalent, and I'll add some veneer stone on the bottom 3' or so.

    It will have radiant heat in the floor and well insulated. As we progress, I'll take pictures along the way document the progress and process just because I like to do this and we all like pictures and I'm sure I'll be asking for advice along the way.

    Nice, I look forward to watching the progress and then a semi-finished building, as we rarely ever finish a new shop.

    I'm working on one myself, still diddling with the pad. I live on a hillside so it takes quite a bit of diddling!!

    It's been slow, with not much happening. We've been dry from the end of spring until....you got it this week. I got the pad leveled, and have drilled holes with the 12" think concrete footings. Material is supposed to be delivered today, but it's raining pretty good here now, I'm not sure if that will still happen.

    Of all the luck...but I know my farmer neighbors need the rain...it was getting pretty dry and the corn was showing signs of moisture stress.

    I hope to have progress this week if the weather cooperates.....
