i whole heartedly agree with 1939P7 's btw....if a shop is in next years budget, i would reallocate funds this year and just get the floor and stem walls (if planned for) poured, then you can do whatevers cheapest and/or ez'st for enclosure and comfort and feel competely safe, personally, i would do the concrete and then use what you'll need for the finished shop (treated sole plates and top plates and corners) and frame like every 3rd or 4th stud or whatever you can afford or poles if you want a pole barn type building and just use heavy plastic for now and build in (windows, doors.. minor things like roof and the rest of the walls) as budget permits
