well here are a few pics of what will soon be my temp shop. It is my dad's new shop and I will soon be building one either the same size or slightly bigger.
It's 30x54 with a 10' eave height. 6" metal stud construction with roof trusses instead of beams. It very easy for a homeowner to assemble. All that is needed is a little help from friends to lift stuff into place. It's all joined by self tapping screws.
what you're gonna see took me and my dad about 6 hours of prep work getting the base plates drilled and bolted to anchor bolts. Then we built the end walls (these 2 walls do not have trusses) After the prep work was done we called in the troops for an early saturday morning start and by noon we had the building up and stable. There was still alot of work to be done running all the channels around the sides on 3' centers and on the roof as well. The building is much further along now but my dad lost the urge to take pictures as the process went along. No need to worry I will be fully documenting the build of my shop so you can see the full process take place.
I'll try to get some pics today of where we stand right now. we are basically done with all 4 walls and are ready for roofing.
The concrete slab was done by others, but when we checked the diagonals for square it was out by 1/8". I'd say thats purty darn close!!
thanks for looking
