Hey Jobby

I had forgotten about your shop build thread. Very exciting for you.  To save having to re-read everything, what are the dimensions you decided on?

Hello again Jobby

Earlier I was going to joke and ask how deep do those footings need to be, about 1/2" ?   [big grin]  So, then I decided to look it up and found this reference. This says 0 to 2" , seems funny to read that!

And what did you decide about cooling the shop?

@RobZ

cooling the shop......

 Im adding some ceiling fans, I havent really put a lot of thought into cooling it yet. I haven't rulled out a swamp cool or split unit.
Ive been thinking more about setting it up  but cooling not really as it should be completed the mid-end of August then we should be cooling down a few weeks after its completed.

Now that’s a fence...I assume the blocks left out on the bottom are incase of flash flooding ??
There are no mistakes....just new designs.

@Vondawg

 yeah the fence is designed for drainage when it rains here.

 That fence completely surrounds the back and its 6ft high, I have a full acre and the fence surrounds most of it;

@Thompmd

I cant wait to get it built and start setting the shop up. Been waiting a long time to have a dedicated shop.

Have you considered building it out of SIPS panels which are strong and easy to seal up for airtightness.

Very well insulated and consequently you can condition the internal air far cheaper and more effectively.

Just had a 30 x 36 polebarn built by an Amish contractor.  One 12 x 30 room for garage, the rest is my shop, no windows and I'm having the interior including roof spray foamed 2".
