Clever with the bump out.. Makes me think that general garage owners here should have a peak in here to se how a garage should and could look like, and more importantly see how much (nice) stuff that actually can fit in a garage utilising the walls and overhead. And most will even fit two cars if the precious tools are wheeled to the side [wink]. The common sight: an enormous pile on the floor, and a small week cleaning out before one car can fit inside, which is never done.

Looking forward to how you decide the layout.

@jobsworth

What's the scoop on the exterior and the roof? Stucco? Shingle, tile, metal?

Looking good so far. Isn't it 115 or something out there?

@rvieceli

Outside is going to be stucco. Since I bought a new house I wanted the shop to match the house exactly. So it will be stucco same stucco used on my home , same with roof tiles and windows. Ill be building some outbuilding like a green house storage shed etc etc Im not concerned about tem matching the house but the shop yes

Getting closed in is always a milestone.  The Amish crew that did mine put the trusses up sans crane from the ground, so guys (and kids, 12 and 14 year sons) were working beasts.  Foam installers knocked my building out Wednesday.  Waiting for 10' x 9' overhead door installed and commercial steel 42" door and frame ordered.  Moved in equipment that I could chain up or put into job box and hung one row of LED light strips.  Powered lights with Honda EU2200 since power not run yet.  Heading to Lowes to pick up 30 sheets of 1/2" ply to put ceiling and wall where wifey will park her chariot.  I'll end up with 22' x 30' shop space.

My 36' side has three 10' bays but only one has a 9' high door.  We live in small central PA boro and I'm 67 and figure that if we eventually sell that someone may want three car bays.

...

That’s a popular design. One high bay in the middle and two standards on each side.

At least you went with 10ft width, as I’ve seen some garages built way too narrow for opening car doors.

All the bays are 10', I drive a 3/4 ton Ford van, not getting into anything less without turning the mirrors inward.  Wife's walled in space is at one end, one exterior door entering that space.  Plan on getting everything into the shop with 60" slider in interior wall after overhead door.

Bought a 2019 4Runner late last year. But then not much snow.

Arguably, the winters in NE Ohio and NW PA can be brutal on vehicles.

Oh, and, sadly I’m too tall to find the Audi TT enjoyable.

Tiles, very much in character for your area.  I only know of one house, outside Lewisburg, in our area.

Since the shop is going to match the house, theyre the same roofing tiles that we have on my home. Here in the SW tiles are the way to go

If I missed it, sorry. Are you going to spray foam the walls? I did in mine and loved it . Great r value and strength and rigidity are amazing. Only big down fall is if you have to get back in the wall to run something... let’s call it yucky

Not sure on the type of insulation yet.

 That will be the one of the last things I will do. The last thing will be wall covering havent decided on that yet. Got plenty of time for that though.

A friend of mine in the insulation business is really fond of wet-spray cellulose as the ‘bang for your buck’ wall insulation.  I’m not sure if it’s commonly used in your area versus his (N.E Ohio).

Cellulose is great for walls and framing containing wood as yours jobsworth. If you do not install a sealed barrier (typically plastic membrane) cellulose or wood fibre based insulation is mandatory as it will absorb any condensation slowly, and then let the moisture evaporate slowly again. Any glass based, rock based insulation or similar that doesn’t absorb moisture (condensation) will drip slowly down to underlying framing when cooling off. It’s a timeline to rot.
Both in Sweden and here, cellulose based insulation has become the choice for old houses. But increasingly popular in new builds as well. Pricing is higher, but gain is slightly better insulation and a green choice - Other benefits may be; healthier, non itching, no need to dress in protective clothing, smells good (wood like) and quite pleasant to work with. I used to hate insulating jobs, but now it’s pleasant and slightly fun because it’s like very soft wood.

Coming in late on this one but this must be very exciting for you!!  I wish I came slightly earlier just to give my 2 cents about power and receptacles.  Put in twice as many as you think you'll need.  You cannot have too many outlets!!  I'm obviously a little late saying this but you can always throw some more in yourself before closing in the walls.  As a master electrician I can't emphasize this point enough to people.

Otherwise this build is looking great!  I'm very jealous as I'm in a basement where space is always tight.

Wisely said, you (almost) cannot have too many outlets. In my late garage my electrician looked at me and said: How many? All these places? - I never regretted splashing out on outlets. Very good lighting and more than enough outlets spread around was the real pleasure of a new space, this time I’m even getting more  [big grin]
