What did it cost to build your shop?

I have been going through all the shop build threads but it's hard to pinpoint when the costs were mentioned.

Thought this might be a needed thread so if you built a shop post up...

Location:
Size:
Cost and what it includes: (such as just building or total cost w/ concrete, etc.)
How much work you did yourself:
What type of building:
Other info:


Hopefully this thread gets some action as I am actually looking to build or purchase a place soon for my biz.

A lot of the cost depends on your location, permit costs, wages. My dad is building a 50x60 shop and he is doing all the foundation work, wiring, and putting up the building. I think the cost will come to about 40k.

Too many variables. Make a budget then double it and you will be very close.

Just signed a contract for a 30x50x12 pole barn. 4- 3'x3' windows, 1- 12'x11'tall garage door. An 8' wide garage door framed in the back but not installed.

He is putting it up for $11,500. This includes everything to put it up and have a shell along with permits.

It is the best deal I could find around. I live in Northern CO. I am making sure the ground is level before hand. I am also doing the electrical and concrete work.

I figured out it should be another $3-4000 in concrete and electrical to wire the shop.

This is why I said there are too many variables my concrete alone was $13,500 and my electrical when finished will have cost me another $3000 or so.

It helps I have all the wire for my shop already and got most of it for free from my dad. As far as the concrete I am only doing a 30x30 pad in the shop, not the whole thing.

my 40x40 slab was over $12k in materials alone. $3-4k is not gonna get yours done unless you have one hell of a hookup.

Off the top of my head my numbers were something like this

Location: San Diego area

Size: 40x40 steel building 16' eaves. Fully insulated with interior wall panels. 1-16x14 roll up door 1-10x10 roll up, 1- walk in, 2 windows.

How much work you did yourself: Probably about 40-50% I hired a contractor friend who did all the concrete work, and we assembled the building together. I had someone else do the inside electrical. I upgraded the service at my house and ran the underground line to the sub panel.

The building was about $24k delivered.
The slab was about $16k total.
Labor to put it up was probably another 12k or so.
Total with all the extra stuff I added to finish it out was probably around $60k

Mooresville, IN

30x40x12 pole barn style with 4' span

4" Poured floor

2 Insulated garage doors

All built by the amish , $12,000.

We did the dirt work and the ole man hooked us up with the stone.

I did all the electrical.

All in all I'd say I got around $15,000 in it.

Remember, we dont all live in Ca.
1600 sq ft, 5" thick slab with #4 rebar on 16" centers set me back $3800 in materials, and labor 11 months ago. I leveled the pad myself, and laid all of the rebar.
My building was already standing when I bought the property, I estimate $10k to finish it with wiring, concrete, insulation, interior walls, and heat.

That is double what mine cost and mine is 50% larger than your building.
I think your friend hosed you on that concrete.

A lot depends on area and usage, we have ~$6k worth of rebar and bag ties in our 4000 sq. ft. slab and a hell of a lot more than $6k worth of concrete (which was ~$205/cubic metre when we poured our slab).

I spent almost as much on rebar per ft, so that's a wash. I paid $50 cubic yard, that is a huge cost difference.

I paid for materials directly using his account, so if anyone hosed me it's the steel and concrete people. Also keep in mind my slab is 6" thick with HUGE footings and a LOT of steel. IIRC it was 6 or 7 trucks worth of mud. It's also SoCal so everything costs more. On the flip side the average wage is also higher, and we have beaches that are warm all year.

I figured 30x30x5" thick concrete in my shop. Came out to 13-15 yards of concrete which is $90/yd delivered. Then rebar another $600, and my buddy and me pouring it ourselves. He owns his own company and is doing the work for beer.

So $3000 is not to high from what I have figured. It is only going in a pole barn so no reason for footers, it won't be fully heated all the time so no reason for footers

Indiana,
40x60x16, 3 14x14 doors, walk door, fully insulated, white tin on the ceiling and walls, 6" slab. I did electrical and hvac.
38k is what I paid the amish.

80x120x18 with 30x36 office off one side, 2 18x16 doors, 1 20x16 door, walk door, fully insulated, white tin on the ceiling and walls, 6" slab. The office was just a shell, I finished the inside, small kitchen, shower bathroom. I did the electrical, plumbing and hvac in the whole building.

Minus the work I did, I paid somewhere around 160k for what the amish built.
