Default I'm being evicted...

...from my garage. Wifey told me it was time to get my own space, no more sharing the garage with the woodworking stuff. So as soon as the property owners association office opens after the holiday break (Jan 2nd) I'm going to file paper work for a small outbuilding. It will be 12x20. That is the biggest I can have on my property unless I step up to 24x24 garage and I can't afford that. Totally excited about having my own space.

Congratulations. It is always a pleasure to have dedicated room/shop to work. I know the excitement!

How tall will they let you have it?

I've found that taller has advantages over shorter for a lot of things, at least if you ignore heating and cooling costs.

I can have eight foot walls. I think the max height for the building cannot exceed 12 ft at the peak. For me that will be high enough because the inside ceiling will be vaulted with the rafters being ceiling joists. Heating and cooling aren't a real big deal for me here in Tennessee. We don't get so cold that a small electric heater can't make it nice and cozy,and summer usually is not so hot that I need AC.

Great!!! Are you going to build this yourself? 12 x 20 is a nice size. But they can never be big enough.

Hey! It's a start

Be sure to listen to Chuck. He has ways of making that space seem so much bigger.
We look forward to seeing your new shop in photos.

I'm not sure yet if I am going to build or buy a building already built and have it set up. I going to make sure property regulations, a lot will depend on that as well as cost. I know that I can save a little money by building it myself but not sure it will be enough for the hassle of having to build it.

I have been using half of a 2 car garage for 7 years and that size has been sufficient for me and the equipment that I have. So a 12x20 which is a little bigger, will be good for me.
