I thought I would post a bit more about my shop.
the bionic doghouse
I have been in the process of building a man cave for 10 years now. I built a 24 x 32 foot shop with attic in nebraska then moved to utah, after five years I built a 40 x 42 foot steel miracle truss building. did all the work myself on these 2 (with a lot of help from my friends and family of course) then right after I finished that building I had to move again. I hope that this is the last time I ever move I told my wife I would not move if I couldn't build a new shop. This time, since I injured myself slightly on the last one, my wife convinced me to have the shop assembled by a pro. It went up so fast that I am very glad I had them do it. now I have just been working on finishing the inside.
here are some pictures of my shop. I call it the bionic doghouse. it is 60 by 40 inside I have a 44x40 main shop then I have a 16x20 foot separate woodworking shop that I can close off and keep the sawdust off my cars. I will have a small bathroom area and a 10x 16 ft area just for my dogs. I have a 10 x 10 foot wood deck off the back of the shop, inside there is a small fridge and microwave. I have a pretty good collection of hand tools, 2 air compressors one 60 and one 80 gallon bead blaster, powdercoating oven, woodworking tools. with a selection of 3/8, 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch sockets drills and since my dad retired and moved out to iowa he has added all of his tools to the shop so I am feeling pretty good about things now.
it is still in the construction phase but it is coming along. the outside is done but the inside is still being worked on. as you can see the term dawghause has two meanings. it is a house for my dogs and a place I can go when I am in trouble with the wife. it is bionic because I keep building it better than it was before.
this is the original floor plan.
this is a picture of the land after clearing the grass.
I can hardly believe that this is the entire garage.
