    Son's New Shop

    My son and his wife bout 40 acres about 30 miles from me 2 years ago. He is retired and she is retiring the end of this year. I am helping him build a 30x60x12 shop. Hope to be putting on roofing tin in a week. His 1st construction. Name:  IMG_0740[1].jpg

    Wood shop, welding shop, automotive shop or just little of everything?

    He does not have a welder or machining equipment. Only wood equipment, so probably more of a inside storage I expect. He wants a welder in the future. 10' at one end will be a small living quarters until they get a house built. There will be 12x10 and a 10x10 garage doors also.

    Better than living in or buying a RV to live in while building a house, save money for the house. Only reason I am in a camper that will go into my shop after it’s built while I build a house is can’t beat $500 for a solid one piece fiberglass truck camper from the 60’s that I rebuilt for future use. Bet that had to been a expensive build with what the lumber prices were unless he got materials before they went up.

    Re: Son's New Shop

    He bought an older 26' RV last year that he is staying in while we are building his shop. His wife is retiring end of this year and their house starts in March next year. She is working in San Diego until she retires. She will be here permanently about April. She visits for a week at a time about 3 times a year. He bought a lot of the lumber just before the prices went sky high. I did all the secondary wiring to a temporary panel last spring so he could stay in his camper and to have power for tools to build the shop. The tin on the roof is just to get through the winter, the maybe the tin prices will drop and then the walls will be covered with tin. He bought several windows and doors at garages sales last spring for the shop. Used but plenty good for the shop.

    He likely will not do any welding but twice a year, after I teach him, and probably do it outside anyway.

    Thanks. Just wishing it was going faster. About once a week we get some help from neighbors. Wish we had a 4 man crew every day. Son ordered roofing tin today.

    At least you got all materials before all prices went up, that’s luck right there. Sounds like you are trying to dry it in for the winter, same here and if I can push mine further on build I will. Sounds like your son has good neighbors, only neighbors around here only know how to do is drink beer, ask help for everything and have no skill set nor physical attributes to do anything except possibly get hurt. Also great you are helping him, I just got 3 people me myself and I. What are you insulating the walls with for the part for him to live in plain fiberglass battens? Looks like you can shove up to R21 in those walls.

    Re: Son's New Shop

    Yep... the Waldo shop went up in the 70's for somewhere around $7k (not insulated) and I just put $14k into a door and tin. My 60x40 dead storage pole structure went up in 2003 for $24k (all Cdn $). A neighbor built a bio-tech at the same time for $14k but it's already gone flat once for snow load. The last quote I got to double it's size was 10 yrs ago and it was over $40k then. I put the 3 walled insulated 30x40x14 up ten years ago $14k and I've never regretted it.... can't imagine the cost of replacing all those structures today but I'd guess approaching $180 k.

    2x6 walls so R19 in his apartment and in his shop too. R30 in the ceilings. Always nice to have good neighbors for sure. He has a carpenter that parks his tiny house over at one end of his property in trade for 4 hours work on his shop every Saturday.

    Got 90% of the OSB on the north side of the roof done this morning. No pics of today's work. Hope to finish the roof sheathing in the next days or two. Finished pics then.

    I don't know what you are complaining about. My grandson asked me to help with his new machine shop and we finished it in one night. Yes, the demands do increase as they grow older...

    At my age, I would prefer to be in my wood shop doing that type of work too.

    Roof OSB is all on. Need to do some light trimming on the gable ends to square it up. Then install roofing under lament. Roofing tin and gable trim should be coming this week I hope. After that exterior walls OSB, doors and windows.

    Re: Son's New Shop

    Squared up the roof sheathing today within a 1/4". Did one thin cut only on one side of the south side. Now it is ready for the tin underlayment. Tin and trim is supposed to be ready Tuesday. Did have to caulk a few seams on the roof OSB. I never do but he wanted to do it so we did it.

    Worked on cutting short studs that go under the scissor trusses to nail the OSB to. Each was a different length. NOW he says the scissor trusses are a pain in the ***. Wish he would have taken my advise and used standard trusses in the beginning.

    Supposed to help with energy efficiency and if a roof is torn off during a storm helps stop water infiltration, some use sealant tape.

    I wanted a vaulted ceiling in the living room of the house when we built it in 81 so some of the rafters were half scissor and half standard truss... and yes, they were a pain during construction and finishing. Can't say I've had any problems with them since though...

    We got the top of the trusses square before putting on the roof OSB. Now that that step is done the bottom cord is bowed so we will have to deal with that to get it unbowed before we put on the exterior OSB on the gable end walls and again likely when we do the ceiling.

    That shop is built super strong! I really like the cross bracing on the wall studs. Roof looks sturdy too! He should be proud of it when finished.
