    Finally building the 44 x 68 workshop

    The rain has set me back a month and a half but I have it started. I decided to post it on Workshop Addict and link to it. Sorry but my time is limited with kids sports and building.

    Here it is:
    My 68' x 44' stick built barn / workshop is starting 5/4/2013

    Nice work Brian. Some of the same things I did you incorporated as well and you'll like them. I have to pour my aprons yet and should have done it when I built but didn't. When you pour use a good thermal break so you don't pull heat from your slab.

    Looks like you will have a nice building when done Brian. After looking at your thread for your building, the one suggestion I may offer is think twice about using OSB for inside sheeting. I'm sure some areas of your building it may work fine but it also has places where it does not work so well. As I'm sure you may be aware OSB and moisture do not mix well together for very long. One thing many people don't think of, myself included, is the fact that OSB is pretty flammable.

    Someone locally in my area had OSB in their shop for interior sheeting. They were 6 blocks from the fire hall. A spark caught a small fire which quickly engulfed the entire building. The OSB went up in flames before you could blink an eye. He was there when the fire started and he called 911 right away and the building was a loss by the time the fire department made it 6 blocks down the street. OSB has a lot of chemicals and glue in it compared to plywood or sheet rock. I now understand why building code in many places demands the use of sheet rock for interior sheeting because of its fire resistance. This Summer I will be replacing or covering the OSB with steel sheeting like you would use for a pole barn in one room of my garage where I work with open flames and sparks.

    The OSB has been in the back of my mind for a while. I am trying to find metal for the interior in the wash bay, but that too has its challenges as I might have to put OSB behind it with my spray in insulation.

    My plan was to coat the OSB with a clear wood sealer. It will not last forever, but.....

    Kenny and I work together on 2 forums. Here and WorkshopAddict.com

    For as smooth as this site runs, I thought that Gizmo was the GTT supervisor also. Now I find out that it is Brian and Kenny?

    Amazing, right? Truth is I supervise them but they don't know it.
