Default Shed to Shop

This project started a while back. In a process to leave Illinois I figured I deserve a shop update from a 2 car garage to a bit under 1000 Sq.ft. machine shop. It will be a metal only gig, no wood finally. Wood will be another building on the property.

I'd like to say a big thank to Milo and Linda for all the help during our transition as we'll be their neighbor in Wyoming. Chris, your help on the building was invaluable, thanks.

The plan was modified a bit as another couple of feet was added to the 6 foot of outside concrete. It's a plan for the concrete guys to give me an estimate.

And of course the beginning of the project much earlier this year.

Once the concrete was done we discovered that the roof is in bad shape and needs new sheeting. There was some heavy rain around that time and you can see the puddles inside. It was a tough time as we did not count on the extra time and some money spent. The good ting was that Chris had some roofing steel hanging around his place and was enough for the replacement. Unfortunately I did not make pics of the roofing thing but you'll see the outcome on the framing pics.

All this happened during several months as we progressed on the project.

We decided that we'll use metal siding instead of vinyl because of the intense sun and ice situation in that climate. Also the inside stud wall was added for more insulation.
