Ring in the new with some quality time with your old truck! A great time to tackle a winter project. If you do not have access to your truck, start your parts list for spring!

One could remove the tin on the south wall and replace it with something to let the sun shine through-free heat. Double sided plastic panels with airspace between for insulation would one option.

My brother in-law Terry helped me build it a dozen or so years ago. It features 14 foot side walls, 220 volt power, a 16x42' mezzanine, one each 18x12.and 10x8 overhead doors. A little more insulation and a source of heat is all I need to for it to be a fully year-round functional workshop.

Oh yeah, and the time to enjoy it. Still working full time. But someday .....

Holy Smokes John, looking at the garage door opening it is full. That is your storage area, now you need to build a shop,lol.

Kinda like Barnfind49's, here's my truck's garage. Someday when the daughter takes the '65 m00stang out of our garage, I might move the truck in there, but will say that the truck gets driven way more often being outside than it would if it was in a garage.

I would like at least a 40 x 60 x 14 shop for Christmas. Forget the two front teeth I also want for Christmas because I never smile looking for hours, for things I set down only to find them buried by parts and stuff.

Removing tin is not an option as it provides stability for building. Not enough sunlight during winter months and would be of no help after dark.

I have other storage options when I get the time to play in the future workshop. Right now it's a convenience to just pack it all in for the winter.


Someday.......... smile

Tom,

Since your still planning, take the walls to 16'. That way if you put a loft in using 2x12" floor joist you can have 7.5' of head room on both levels.

Also, the higher ceiling makes infrared heat (if that's how you want to heat the building) work better because you have proper clearance from combustibles.
