My shop

I have been following along as some of you all have built your shops. Well, I purchased my steel shop building in October and it arrived in February. I started the permit process last June and got final approval a week ago. As a side note, I had to get a "variance permit" because the location of the shop is in the "front yard." It's not anywhere near the front yard, but where it's located it breaks the plane of the front of the house. The county I live in has not been very helpful and the amount of red tape I went through, I thought I was still in CA.

I digress. I'm excited. I will still be a while before the actual building and slab all get going, as I'm on a waiting list for the contractor. It's ok though, at least now the construction beginning is in sight.

For those interested, I went with a 40'x60'x14' steel building. It's going to house my hot rod and will also be my woodshop. I plan to get back into that as well, since I'm now a retired person.

Re: My shop

Ricky, good for you! I'd love to have a building minimum the size you are building. I was working on building a new one 5 years ago but county zoning and BS put a stop to it. Now I have been looking for a new place to be able to build a shop on. Unfortunately I'm going to have to wait due to this crazy market. I bet you're getting excited now! I know I would be.

Re: My shop

Thank you. Yes, I am excited, but I am also calm about it as I am always waiting for the hammer to drop that something isn't going to go right. I hear you about all the red tape!!! it was ridiculous here. Anyway, more pictures to come.

Re: My shop

I haven't updated lately, sorry. Here's a few more. It's a 6" floor. The excavator was lagging and that has been what's holding up progress. The poured the floor last week, and then we had rain. After everything dries out, the erectors should be here to start with the actual building, hopefully.

Re: My shop

Thanks Joe. I'm a little disappointed though. This thing should have been started a couple of months back and finished by now. I as I mentioned, the excavator was the hold up. Now, we are working around the weather. Oh well, it will get done before the snow at least, or so I hope.

Re: My shop

IMO you have the hardest part done when dealing with winter coming. Once a crew shows up they should have it erected pretty quickly. Hopefully they get there soon.

Re: My shop

How is that going to work with drainage? Looks of the pics provided appears that the slab is in the low spot on the land

Re: My shop

There will be no issues with the drainage. The photos are a little deceiving. We got almost two inches of rain last month. There's little to no standing water.
