Also how are you going to do the ceiling? I would want as much height as possible, at least in the middle of the room.

Great looking building.
Had one shop where we used 'chip board' 1/2 inch and painted it white. We ran all the electric outside the walls for changes later. Also ran air lines at the ceiling.
Hope that you can find an air conditioner to fit the window.
If you can't place any cement in front of the door.....a long ramp might be a nice addition.

Enjoy the fun.

I will put a pad or pavers at the doors but will not be able to roll any tools outside as of right now. With the tools I have and my current plan I will not need to do anything outside.

I am going to try to get a little bit of height with vaulting the joists but I might just have to place the ceiling joist on top of the wall plate. That will still give me just a inch or so above 8' to the ceiling. I know that is a little low but with the limitations of the building codes I couldn't get any taller walls.

Now you have your own space in the works she'll need an invite to come visit you.

You should be able to raise your ceiling joints and span them between the roof rafters or even eliminate them totally.

You could put some insulation between the roof rafters, allowing for ventilation, and put your drywall right on them.

Why do you need a ceiling? Isn't the building designed to stand as is? If it was supposed to have a ceiling wouldn't it have been sold that way? You can put a partial one across to store lumber and lawn chairs but don't do the whole thing if you can avoid it. Being able to go outside to sand or paint is more useful than you can imagine.

I considered just putting it straight to the rafters but the rafters are only 2x4s so with r 13 that will be right against the underside of the roof and no ventilation. So I'm going to drop it a little just not sure how much.

Could just tack some 2x2s or 2x4s to the current rafters. Or use foam sheets, some between the rafters and some on the rafters.

Since it isn't a large shop perhaps getting it spray foamed would be better. If there is any development in the area a company might tack your job to their day if they have any other work in the immediate area. I know it cost more than bats but it would be quick for them to come in and shoot the ceiling and walls. Then you can put up the sheeting of choice. Just get all the electrical rough in and penetrations for venting, dust exhaust etc., first.

Default Busy Day

Friday was a busy day on my building. I got the electrical work roughed in. Going to have 100 amp service. I have a dedicated circuit for my table saw, one to the rear wall for AC and one for Dust collector. Wired for 6, 4 ft lights. Also one switched outlet in the middle of the shop for air cleaner. I have boxes about every 5 ft down each wall.
I decided to put Styrofoam insulation in the ceiling and raise the ceiling up. I have 9ft 4in of clearance in the middle of the floor. Just got to get insulation and sheetrock up an Ill be moving soon.
