Depends on your definition of a shop. It's small, yes. But it houses my welders and wood working tools. Sorry of it doesn't fit your standards.

It looks badass. It fits the house. Its built into the house. Its a sneaky way of having a cool little shop out back while keeping some curb appeal.

Not everybody is in a situation to have the giant 2600ft metal pirate abomination looming over the lower roof 1700ft home.

Well... yea.

There is a family not too far from here, the dad builds/races dirt track. They're in a 70's looking single wide, shop right behind it has got to be at least 40x80 and NICE. Part of me wants to laugh- part of me totally gets it.

A friend of mine built a shop on his property a few years ago. 2 large overhead doors, a loft over a third "bay", two post lift in the center. Very well built and it fits in with the design of his house.

It's bigger than my last house. LOL!

Cut the 24s in half, it won't take that long.

setup a table with a stop, put the batt against the stop, use a carpenters knife, with the blade all the way out, drag it down, you'll have two batts ready to go.

Do the whole lot as an assembly line, I bet it takes less then an hour.

If you say so.

I know a few guys that started their shops out of their home garage. After they got setup and word of mouth spread they usually ended up going to an actual shop.
