    Photos My summer project: New Shop

    Here's what I've spent my summer doing. Also the reason I haven't wheeled but once this summer. Also the reason my Jeep has sat broken for 3 months. But I can't complain. :iconbiggrin:

    OK, on to the pictures. First is what I started with.


    Groundbreaking, 15 holes 18"x18"x4'.

    Ready for concrete. A big thanks goes out to Ceg for the cattle panels I needed. Also thanks to Test Dummy and friend (sorry didn't get a name) for helping me get them loaded on short notice.




    24 yds. of concrete and week later.


    Getting started on the roof.


    Roof is done after 2 weeks of a couple hours here and there after work.


    First wall done. Big thanks to Ben W.

    The last couple weeks have been spent finishing up the all the trim work, I will try to get a current pic up soon. The next project will be getting the power service put in. Then on to inside details like wiring, insulation and some kind of heat. It's been a lot of work so far and I couldn't have done it without lots of help from friends and family.

    What size?
    It's also interesting to see the different engineering between pole buildings, where did you get the kit (if you got one) from?

    30x48x14.
    No kit. Just drew it up myself. The only thing the county baulked at was my poles. I called out 6x6 PT, they said no, must be 4x12PT along the side walls. End walls could be whatever I wanted.

    Finally got a picture with all the green trim finished. The edge of the roof is capped all the way around with metal. The soffits are covered in metal. There's no wood exposed on the outside of the building.
    Now I'm waiting for the ground to thaw so the trench can be dug for power.

    Please tell me your running it's own power NOT OFF THE HOUSE panel?

    I ended running a separate meter to the shop just because it was easier but like it know. And it's pretty darn easy to fill a 42 space (200A) box with 240 circuits, lighting and outlets.
    The Meter base is setup to be split(340A) and another underground conduit for the house to eventually get rid of the overhead powerlines.

    Yes, seperate 200A service. The existing ground tranformer is not too far from the back corner of the shop. This way is a lot easier (and better in my opinion) than tearing up the back yard. The only disadvantage is that being detatched from the house, the power co. considers it commercial,meaning higher kw rate charge.
