Nice shop! Looks a little crowded, but clean and fairly organized, unlike mine...

Default building

X-Ray,

Is that a USBuildings "kit" building? I have kinda looked into their "A" plan do-it-yourself shop buildings, but I dunno. And I haven't talked to anyone who owns one or been able to actually see one.

Did you erect it yourself? What do you see as the pros & cons?

Yes I erected it myself.

Pros:
Decent value for the $$$


Cons:
Not as easy to erect as the MFG would like you to believe. Royal PITA to get square and plumb.
Hidden Costs: You need a MAn-lift!!!!!! Scaffolding is not the answer
It is not a one man job.
You need EXPERIENCED help!, your wife is not the answer (in most cases)


You need to consider your FINAL finish of your building. The steel building does not lend itself to economical insulation installation.

Default Nice.

Nice shop not too clean (easy to hide stuff from spouse!)

How do you like the Kennedy tool board just got mine in tan haven't put it up yet.

I see that Hobart Fabricator but the wire feeder is missing?

Only one concern Bud Light??? Come on watered down rice juice?

Not sure came with house, but I would go for the straight sided metal buildings if buying new.

Kennedy tool board is a keeper. No I still have it, though I would like to have a red dual-feeder
I have both flavors (bud & bud light), the light beer has half or third the calories of regular...so naturally there would be 2-3 times the empties
