I have decided to build a shed/shop. It will be a dual purpose building. I'm looking at a 12 x 28 ft. building. The front end will house our pop up camper to keep it out of the weather and household storage with the back end (approx 12 x 10) of the building being MY SHOP! I know that 12 x 10 is not real big but it is 12 x 10 ft bigger than I have now. Plus it will only be for woodworking and should not have to store any "household stuff". I do not have the time to build it myself so I'm currently taking bids from local contractors to stick build it on site and I'm also checking pricing on having a "pre-built" brought in and set on site. Either way...I will have it built to my specs and for my specific needs.
The front end will have double doors that open very wide to allow me to back the pop up into the building. The side of the building will have two 36" service doors. One near the front and the other at the shop end for entry there. I will build any workbenches at a later time.
I do have questions on how wide do floor joists need to be to allow me to store a 3000 lb camper in it without damage to the floor. Also what type of floor material (treated plywood)? I'm also thinking about ventilation. I'm thinking about end gable vents...one at each end. Not sure if I need a roof vent?
Well, I'll ask more questions as I go along. I hope to get something started in about 6-8 weeks.
