The problem down here isn't the actual permit. Although it is a pain in the ass process at a government office that doesn't want to help. It is the survey and the architect. That could cost more than the project.

As the years go by I think the thing you will be the most happy you did was the 3 block base for your walls.
I have only been I mine 2 years and am very glad I did it.

The extra height is real nice.
I went with a ridge beam roof so I have a 14 foot to the top of the vaulted room.
No problem throwing around 10 foot sticks of EMT.

I seem to remember that in other shop/garage builds stating that "No matter how big you build them they will eventually, if not sooner, be too small." My shop/garage is bigger than my house and I knew it was too small before I finished it.

After the tractor shed off the back that may or may not get done this year, and the planned 18x48 addition off the side next year I should be in better shape...Well maybe not
