You are taxing my brain a little making me remember.
The building had all the upgrades. Thicker square tube, better sheet metal, vertical roofing with purlins. 10’ X 10’ roll up doors. I priced about 4 different companies and they were all about the same price plus or minus $10. It was crazy how close they all were on price.
Anyway, the building including labor to construct it and delivery.
Concrete slab needed footers to me code in my county.
So concrete slab was maybe $6000 which included large stump removal.
Building was around $8000.
I added a lean-to later and then another slab of concrete to the left later still.
All together I think I have $30-32K in it.

Lug,
You have a lot of shop for that. Ground prep and concrete can surprise you on how much it costs up here in the pacific northwest. I'm still planning my next one.
After cab off restoring my 53 in a 20 by 24, I think I know the size of the next one. You can get some good lessons by having too small of a shop. I was constantly taking parts back and forth from my other garage for storage. If you are going to do a cab off truck restoration listen up, you need a lot of room or you will be fighting space problems throughout the build. Need a bay for each lift, my next one will have a 2 post as well as my 4 post. A space for a clean work bench and one for rough dirty work. I found another assembly table accessible from all four sides is real handy for doing large jobs like upholstering seats and rebuilding doors and such. And space you can roll your frame into to get it away from the bodywork you are doing. My ideal garage would not have anything along the side walls, a storage room for the compressor and boxes of parts ,engine stands and so forth is handy too. Probably minimum of about 1200 square feet. Well I can dream.

Regulations had me limited to 600 SF. I decided on 2 bays because I was only planning to keep one truck. Now I have 3. I have room to work but not the proper amount to attempt a frame off resto unless I park my other trucks outside.

I would of been well appreciative of 600square feet, mine 480square feet, not so good.

I had the slab poured a couple of years ago, 28' x 40'. The plan was to have 2 bays 28' x 28' and a 14' breeze way. After reading some of the post here I might rethink the breeze way and close it in for work space.

While 28x28 is a nice size two bay garage, 28x40 is WAY better! You can get 6 of our old pickups in that space if you lay the doors out right...I vote for one BIG door at least 10' tall and 18' wide...20' would be better.

I would have to agree with Mike. Make the building fit the slab. you could always add a lean too later. They never seem big enough.....My shop had plenty of room but somehow I ended up with three trucks.....and my wife's "prized VW so now it is a chess game if I want to pull my dd in for an oil change. Somethings got to go and I have a feeling it ain't the vdub……

Question....are you able to walk under your trucks while on the lift w/o ducking? Appears you have vertical height limitations.
