Dang Neil, that’s a nice shop. I like the two doors instead of one larger one and as Marty mentioned, the first thing I noted was the quantity of concrete for your project. Do you plan to use the rear door for ingress/egress? Those are interesting trusses, never seen that before. Very nice!

The single door on the far end is more for cross ventilation in the summer, plus I have access to wash a car on an extension outside of the door.
All the concrete work almost matched the cost of the building.

...and the wet bar, fridge, radiant heat in the floor, recliner, TV, stereo system, hot tub, etc.?

I sure with I had room at my place for that large of the shop/garage. It may be time to follow Steve's lead and purchase 20 acres in the wilderness!!

Very nice Neil! I can't wait to finish the driveway into my new property so I can start on the new shop. Now there are priorities for you. Shop gets built before the house!
