Thanks all for the replies,
The builder called me lateer that day to let me know it willbe the next week that they will start.

I already have a 20 x 26 shop just wanting to separate my woodworking tools from my metal working stuff.

I am out of space to work on anything wood related with out having to move everything from my metal working.

They finally started on my shop yesterday.
The showed up at 10am to a empty spot in my yard.
Then they left at 4pm and had this much completed.


I get to start on insulating and running power. Then closing the walls in.

I have a question will it be ok to put insulation right up to the bottom of the roof?
The roof will be metal.

I put insulation right up to the roof sheathing on the one I had built in Houston with a shingle roof. It did have ridge vent the length of the roof which I left open on the inside to help vent both the roof line and the inside. Fewer cold days there than you may get. I was going to vent the eves but when I calculated the venting needed and looked at it, there was enough gap. If I had decided I needed airspace, I think I would have installed the 2 or 3 inch rigid foam insulation between the rafters.

Looking good. Nice lines and all.

I would look how high my benches are going to be and make sure that your electric boxes are high enough. Looking around the picture I assume that you don't get a lot of winter there. Put a box down low by the door. Just something I always do for outdoor work.

A good milk house heater should be enough to keep that warm and toasty.

My first building I put the outlets at 48 inches. My second I put them the length of the box higher so if I leaned a sheet of plywood against a wall I could still use the outlet.

I'd insulate the roof too. My Dad had an Amish shed built 30 years ago.
12' X 20' or so. I insulated the whole thing peak to floor. I put lauan plywood over the whole thing & sealed the joints with drywall mud.

It has set out in the weather for 30+ years now, all it needed was paint & shingles. The insulation keeps it at a comfortable temp thru the year, despite having vents at the peaks on both ends.

You might look at spray foam insulation. Costly but I highly recommend it. I have a total electric home built in 2012, 2300 sq ft with a metal roof. No sheeting under the metal just spray foam and foam in the walls. Average electric bill $130 - $140 month.

I would look into a steel door. You will lose more heat through the double wooden door than you will from any lack of insulation.
