    Default New shop

    Looking at putting up a shop to store my stuff in, and hopefully Iíll get a boat in the next 2 years and add it to the toys. I am looking at 40x60x12 with a 5Ē concrete floor. One large garage door 16x10 and a smaller 10x10 door. 5 windows and 1 walkthrough door. Bids so far are $45k-$47k. The Morton guy is coming Friday and I dread to see what he bids it. Anybody put one up recently? Honestly I figured $38-40k but apparently I was wrong.

    30x40 12 foot ceiling and top part turned into 2 story. 10x12 and 8x10 with man door. No windows. Roughly 47 12 years ago. O heat or air. Did plumb for bathroom which I added later. This is stick built. Wish I had done all metal single story.

    Yeah I decided against it. With power plants closing all over the country I am not taking on any debt.

    Put up a 40 x 60 x 10 with 5 inches of concrete 4 years ago. Mine is made of wood (shingles). That was almost 5 years ago and I know I have at least $50,000 in it. The inside walls are insulated and the inside is finished (walls and ceiling). If my health is ok I plan on getting the ceiling insulated with blown in insualtion next fall.


    They are never big enough but I can keep my boat under a roof. With the insulation I never did see the temperature get below 30 this winter with just the sidewalls insulated. I really find that a little odd but I am satisfied with it.


    With the insulation and finished walls and ceiling i probably have close to $60,000 in it.

    Had the tresses built at an angle where a person can stand in the loft....lots of room for storage.

    I built my shed in 2014 after a tornado took the old one. Didn't spend anywhere near what you guys did, but mine is also considerable smaller.
    10 x 18 x 8 no concrete for less than a grand. Pole barn with a salt shaker style roof. 10 x 14 is yard equipment storage, 8 x 14 is a lean to and where I store the boat in the winter. I throw a tarp over it. Rest of the year the lean to is a nice shady spot to sit out of the elements. I might run power to it and turn it into a wood shop. Might even put in a concrete floor.
    I did put a loft in it to store the yard furniture and yard decorations for the winter.
