Finally getting a real shop!!
 
Well it's suppose to start next Wed. (12/07/05) I fell into a little money and found a few deals and they are suppose to start forming the slab then. This is going to be a "hybred" building. 56' x 42" with 40' x 42' enclosed. The remainder will be under roof with no walls for tractors, equiptment, 4 wheeler, ect. I'm getting posts for a metal building and "C"pearlings from a friend for less than $1.00 a foot (rusty ones even cheaper). I bought 15 surplus wooden trusses (2x6 over 2x6 scissor to span 42') for $50.00 dollars each.
I bought 200 sheets of 23' v crimp tin of a chicken house for 6 dollars a sheet (removed) and that includes the 2x4 lathe under the tin. Plan on doing the majority of the work above the slab my self (with the help of my brother). So this project may take a while but the building is part of the fun!!

If any body has a website or personal information on plans for the layout I could sure use the help. I've got a good idea about what I think I want but a little more input and information is always a great thing
this is the site (was my pea patch)

I will do my best to take as many pictures as possible. My brother and I have already leveled the pad. Just waiting on my contractor buddy to form it up.

Don't know if you can tell but I'm pretty excited!! :D

I would appreciate any input and/or comments now and as the work progresses.

This is where I been trying to work The little portable building on the left was my "shop" but usually did most of the work outside or under the carport on the right. The new shop will be in the clearing in the background in front of the aluminum gate.

Good for you, Doc.
A home is nice but there is no substitute for having a castle. :)

my wife says I can basically put what ever I want in the new shop (anything to get me out of the carport) except a TV. cause then I'd never come in the house. ( I really thought she would think that would be a plus, but I guess not LOL)

Congratulations on the new shop! You sure got some screaming deals on materials ;) , but I’m a tad bit confused on the building method. What do you mean by “Hybred building”? :confused: You say the slab is going in first, so this leads me to believe your going stick built, and not post frame But you don’t have enough trusses to go stick built. Going to buy more later? Can you enlighten me / us which way your going ;)

Pile,
The 15' metal posts will be bolted to the slab just like a metal building. I'm going to use doubled 8" c perlings for my plates. The trusses are designed to be on a 5' center, but I'm puting my on a 4' center and they will be bolted to the c perlings with angle iron brackets that will mimic hurricane clips. so it's part metal building and part wooden thus a hybrid.
