I really like the old-fashioned "porch" look to it.

Nice looking shop.
I too have radiant in my shop and although not as good as a heated slap, I think it runs a close second.

What kind of toys.....I mean tools are you putting in the new shop?

I agree with Cutter
Looks count
The porch lowers the height to the eye as well as a place to sit or store.
It just looks better than the "tin box" people think of with pole construction.

I agree with the comments on the looks. I like it.

Would be interested in seeing how they finish around the windows with the tin. Mine leak. I will end up doing more caulking when really the trim should do the work I think.

Powder coat and ceramic coating in the works. Along with muscle cars and tractor pulling building.. Hope with the well insulated when done the heating system is not a issue.

I'll be sure to post. Hope no issues with the windows. I wanted plenty of natural lighting...

agree with the others, love the porch.

It's something ye do so much better in the states, over here sheds are just sheds. it doesnt actually take all that much to make them look good but no-one ever bothers.

Nice shop indeed....maybe someday I'll finish mine.
As long as the tubing is in the floor, radiant heating will do til you get the floor heat someday.
That is a fine Barracuda....to bad the tractor and trailer rolled....hope there was no damage
