50x100 shop wall height ???

I am trying to order my new shop, and I do not know what wall height I should go with. I have a 30x50 shop with 12ft eves, it has one 10x10 door. I will be going with 10x12 wide this time around. Any input on why I should go taller? I have no need to go higher than 12ft on the eves, for anything I have worked on to this point, and when my box vans from work are down, they go to some one elses shop. I only work on my personal junk.

have you seen my shop build up thread ?

my shop is goona be 34 x 30 x 14 with a 4:12 pitch

for me i went higher because there are many ways to use the extra height for storage with pallet racking or by putting in a loft to also create more usabe space. if you price out the diffrence between 10 foot or 12 foot to 14 foot the price is very little.

other reasons i am doing 14 foot walls. i am gonna use plywood and cover one wall and build an indoor rock climbing gym for my kids. I also have a collection of antique schwinn bikes that will be displayed hanging from the rafters and the height helps.

if you ever put in a lift you will want more height.


who are you buying your shop from ?

"Most" lifts are 12'-14' tall, Mine is 14' and I would be screwed if I had a 12' ceiling.


Go at least 14' like Camo said !!

I have an Amco 2 post asymetrical lift at my 1500sqft shop, it will lift my k5 on 37's all the way up. I have maybe 3inches above the cross bar. The only reason I was thinking of 12ft eves is, my house will be set at a 45deg angle to the shop. I know I will not be able to hide the shop with the house, but I can try . I have a 100x120 fenced area behind the shop, for now it will be the fenced yard for the English setters, and Birfield the wonder dog. After I get the house done it will be the hidden boneyard.
I have been working out of the 1500sqft shop for 8 years. I know I could find a way to use 10,000sqft but there is a limit to what I want to spend. When I bought the property (12.5acres), I also bought 5.2acres of commercial about 5-7miles away. I wanted to build my shop on the commercial land, but The way I see it right now, I can build the shop, with one bay finished as an one bed room 1250-1500sqft apartment(difference being, 50x100 or 60x100). I can build the shop with cash on hand, around 80K, then when I refinance, I can build the house with 150-200k. I would hate to start the house and run out of $$$. This way I will not run out as fast.
The girlfriend wants to go back to school to learn paint and body. I am all for it, I can paint, but I do not have the skills to teach her, and I know better than to try. I told her I will buy a spray booth for her in the new shop if I build 60x100. She wants to call the shop Booty Fab Paint&Body&chassisworks
HER PIC SAYS IT ALL!!!
I have been talking to Ameristeel structures, they may or may not build my building, but they are building the 36x48 4 stall barn. The price is not the lowest, but I like the idea of one stop shopping, and having the buildings the exact same color is nice.
I do not want to fawk this up, I will have 600kplus into this project, but it is in an area of 1,000,000 up homes.

Our 50'x100' shop is 20' at the wall, the bigger shop is 24' at the wall. It sounds like you have to try to balance ascetics vs. resale value. Around here a 50'x100' with only 12' walls would be a tough sell.

I would go with at least 14' like camo said.I am going 14' so I can work on my jeep on the lift if needed.I would go more but I am going to try to have air in there by next summer.And the taller the more air space to try to cool.I fyou will not have any dumbass buddy's there operating your lift go 12'.If it was not for some of the idot friends I have mine would be 12'.

Mine is 12' and 40' wide. With 4:12 pitch it is about 18' in the inside center of the building. This is going to be hard to heat, going to use radiant gas heaters.
Remember you are in Asheville and it does get cold. We were downtown last night eating at the mellow mushroom, with the smell of burning weed in the air maybe a 4:20 pitch roof would be better?
My building is near Brevard

I am building the shop on the north side of Greenville SC. I am curious why everyone says taller for a lift. The shop I am in now has 12ft cellings, and my lift works great . I will make my decision monday am. I will have my building ordered by lunch time, unless something blows up at work.
I think I will go 14. That will only get to about 17 at the center, and should work fine.

I am thinking 14 just because my jeep is 7' 3" at the top of the cage.If a buddy decides to raise it up for me when I walk to the restroom or something without thinking one day a lot of people don't look at the top because they are used to normal vehicles and raise it up till they can walk under with out ducking..lol..even though then they can not reach the bottom of the motor.And also you haft to account for the light's that take a little clearence away.I am going to 14' just to help make sure disaster never happens there.If you give yourself enough room you can raise your rig up and store it and still drive another vehicle under it.
