New workshop

Thought some of you might like to see my new shop. It was built by Archery Buildings, Willis, TX. It's 30' x30' with a 20' x 30' carport area. It's wood frame and all concrete floors. It also has an 8' garage door at the rear sidewall. It also has 4 skylights. I just finished the wiring, plug outlets and fluorescent lights. I also ran a water line and have a wash sink in the corner. I finally have a place to work on my 1965 Ford Falcon and do a little woodwork. I've dreamed of having this a long time. Hope you like it.

New workshop

Thanks very much! I really like the carport for washing cars, etc. I put a hose and hanger right outside too. Nice and shady for washing/waxing the vehicles. Here's a photo of my Falcon. It has a 328 hp 302 with a Ford 9". I also just put disc brakes on the front.

Yup, I really like it. Congrats on achieving your life-long dream. I'm renovating my home for my "dream" ToyRoom right now... Seems like it's taking forever!

I love you shop too. Can you give us some more details? It looks very simple like something alot of us can build ourselves. Is it a premade thing? Do you have plans you'd be willing to share? How bout some pics of the inside rafters?

Thanks!!

New Shop

Mine was made from a "model" plan. It's not really a kit, but they fabricate everything on site except for the roof trusses. I can take some pictures for you. It is really nothing that a fairly good weekend carpenter couldn't do. It has 10' walls. The posts are set first and then they frame from there. It took them 5 days, start to finish. I'm sure it could be built by a couple of guys pretty easy. You can buy the siding off the internet.
