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.

Oh the little sweety in the photo is our new girl Cassie.

 We got her at 5 weeks and now she's a few days short of being 2 months. I suspect she'll be spending a lot of time with me in the shop

...

Are the straps required by code? Figured bolts would be sufficient in Arizona.

25 x 30 with a 8 x 12 shed/ bump out. didnt think it would do me I thought I needed a larger shop but after the slab was poured it looks just about the right size for what i need

I’m curious to see how the roof trusses go over the 8x12 vestibule. Always thought it would be nice to get some covered outdoor space in a shop build.

Hey Jobby, 

At 110 degrees, that slab must have hardened enough overnight to be walkable!  I like your shop size.  It should be perfect for a one-man show.

Looking good.

Is the bump out going to be mechanical space. HVAC, air compressor, dust collector, etc.

It's great when you can get that stuff out of the shop area, especially for the reduction in noise from the compressor and dust collection.

@Bob D.

Bump out is for storage stuff i dont want in the garage so we can park in it.

Once I finish the shop a storage shed is next.

 Ill build that myself. Ill use the bump out for things that i dont want in the shop itself. maybe even make a office out of it, put my fridge, microwave, coffee pot, water cooler etc etc.

I only use a small 1 hp senco compressor, my HVLP is turbine, my tools are all electric (99% festool).

Im going to be building a lot of storage cabinets for the garage you know water bottles, drinks, TP, paper towels you know....
