30x50 shop build (stick frame)

growing out of my carport style 24x24 garage and moving up to a 30x50 with attached 16x28 sheds.













picked up a woodstove and a 7x16x4 trailer load of wood for $400, all 2yr seasoned red oak.

Nice build, I really like the sheds for trailer/equipment parking...keeping the shop a shop. That looks like a really nice lot too.

thanks, yea the sheds are gonna be very handy, and it worked out that the right shed is tall enough to clear my buggy loaded an my deckover, for those late night/bad weather returns home and too lazy to unload. i'm still gonna use my old 24x24 garage for buggy/camping gear/atv storage, like you stated; keep the shop a shop!

the lot is newly graded 200 ft begind my home and previous garage. the lot is almost 100'x100' square.

Insulate and finish the interior walls now or you will forever regret not doing it.

Good looking building, what made you go stick frame verses pole?

that was the plan. frankly, my grader didn't cut a level grade as instructed, so the foundation and block was the next best thing.

Have you considered white metal roof on the ceilings? That is the route that I am going in mine. It reflects alot of light, and you dont have to worry about ever painting it, and it is a shit load easier to put up then OSB. I had never thought of it until a friend of mine suggested it.

very nice. my buddy built something very similar, but added a door on far side, making it a drive in/out deal. Makes for easier movement of vehicles, etc.
x2 on getting it insulated. Nice score on the wood stove.

Whats the length from the wall to the posts on your sheds? Whats your snow load where you live? Joists are on 2ft centers?

Sorry about the questions but Im planning my shop build now and I am planning sheds like yours but we have a decent snow load here.

Thanks

EDIT: reread and saw width of sheds.

no i havent but thats a great idea, may consider that route. can't beat the price on the osb though, its not "certifed" so it was only $3 a sheet.

EDIT: reread and saw width of sheds.
i'm no contractor but my cousin who built it is a general. i certainly don't know the specs for our area, but we rarely get more than 6-8" at a time a few years apart.

the wall is approx 14'8" from outside of shed posts. rafters are 2x12 treated, 2' spacing, with 2x4 stringers under the roofing and commercial grade metal. not sure of the pitch.

thanks for all the comps guys. i believe the doors are going up next week or two, meanwhile i'm gonna rough in the electrical and get my power buried.

Btw this was not built with permits, it is 300' from the road and 40' lower in elevation from said road. no one will even know until the next satellite fly by for property tax adjustments, and they just did that last year on my property, so hopefully a few years before i see any "repercussions"(sp?)

Did you get any considerable savings on the block foundation vs. formed concrete?

Looks good. Curious as to how much you've got into it; Material Cost, foundation and building once the doors are in?
