    Re: And so the new shop begins

    And the framing is almost done. Waiting for roof trusses to be deliverred, everyone seems backed up, they are about eight days out.




    Some of the questions answered.

    Too late to run ducting in the floor, the slab was poured yesterday.

    The ceilings are 10' I have an attic upstairs the whole length of the shop and it measures 7' high by around 9' wide. According to building code it is not habitable, but once the building is signed off, I have many plans waiting up there.

    The lighting will be 8 ceiling mounted 4 tube LED fluorescent lights

    What insulation I am not sure yet, the walls are 2 x 6.

    Building will be air conditioned, including heating strips for the winter.

    About the concrete expansion joints, they came from Builders First Source and were pretty inexpensive. They are galvanized steel rails, mounted with spikes or pegs in the base compaction prior to slab pouring and they align level with the grade as someone else mentioned in a post above. My previous house built 8 years ago had them in the garage floors and they worked out perfect.

    Here are some pictures, one was left over and apologies it is full of mud.

    End of profile



    Holes for pegs to secure them on the foundation to be poured



    The fold over part is the screed and expansion joint

    I wouldn't have guessed 30x45 proportion by the pic. Almost looks like the length is 2x the width.

    Appears to be coming along nicely Willem. When is the target date of completion?

    Re: And so the new shop begins

    Roof shingles are installed, wiring rough in is done and now we are stuck. Waiting for the A/C folks to do their rough in before we can get the inspector to sign off, then insulation will follow. The A/C guys are backed up, so we are stuck for a week. Not sure when the shop will be done, we are going as fast as we can, and not bad progress for 3 weeks.

    Re: And so the new shop begins

    Overhead power? I prefer underground, and my shop services are all underground. I also had the house service cable, phone, and TV/Internet relocated to underground. It was above ground when I bought the house, and two times contractors tore it down with their equipment when arriving or leaving. I never have to deal with that issue again.

    Great looking shop. I wish I had the room for one that big.

    Re: And so the new shop begins

    And we are making progress again.

    Windows going in.



    Air and heating going in.



    And then there is the 10' x 45' bonus room upstairs... No idea yet what I am going to do with that, perhaps a cabinet showroom, perhaps a one bedroom apartment, perhaps just storage. Any ideas?

    I know I would furnish it with certain "dog house" amenities as I tend to spend a lot of my time in mine! ha ha

    (the build looks GREAT and is moving along again - I am REALLY happy for you!

    Re: And so the new shop begins

    What about making it a place for extra lumber storage? Line each wall with shelfs and then start collecting lumber. Maybe do an big cart in the middle for sheet goods.

    Re: And so the new shop begins

    How will you get upstairs? Lumber storage in my garage attic is a PITA everytime I want to go bring some lumber downstairs. Those steps and toting things up and down can become problematic as you age and that's no bonus!

    Great idea, but the room is 10' above grade. How do I get the lumber in there?

    That's what I'm asking you. Do you stairs going up or simply a pull-down set of stairs?
