(something I,ve always wanted but up to now never had room for at my current home)
any ideas or advice




CONGRATS, ON BEING ABLE TO UPGRADE IN THIS SHITTY ECONOMY!

, as far as the shop, ITS FAR EASIER TO DO THING CORRECTLY the FIRST TIME, vs re-due them later,and your county building inspector will be a potential P.I.T.A. if you don,t think things thru and follow local building codes, so think long and hard about the basic configuration , and get a well thought thru plan before you start and price out the parts and labor and time required,and what you want to have once your done, consider, shop security ,electric feeds, slab thickness,and minimum rafter height clearance,(especially if you ever intend to install a lift) drainage, heat and moisture venting air flow, county building codes, fire risk, plumbing or at least access to a water tap for a hose, roof pitch and roofing quality , ceiling fans and over head lighting ,outside lighting, motion sensor lights, door security, electrical outlet placement etc.
