Rod, The crew came yesterday and started setting poles for my new shop. In talking it sounds like it is the same size as the one you moved into. My question is how many windows did you put into yours? I suppose the o.h. door will have a couple of windows in it and I was thinking maybe two on each side.

Congratulations Doug! A nice shop is on my bucket list, if it ever rains here again I might get one. Let us know how it turns out for you. Don

Thanks Don, the bank said I could use it as much as I want! Everyone told me they aren't getting cheaper and I am not getting younger! I have the skills to do most of my own stuff and some, jd, Oliver/White and IH experience to do some work for others. Just need a warm place to do it in the winter. I was working at jd until Sept. 45-50 hours a week which was too much with trying to farm , make hay and take care of 25 stock cows. I just got a equipment maint. job that will be 10-20 hrs. a week Not sure on the sidewall height , I was going to go 16' with a 14' high door but we have enough pole height to go a little higher if I want.

Go look at several shops before you get to far. You may come up with several ideas that you cannot add later. You are welcome to come look at mine. I went with 16' sidewalls and 17 1/2 ' high door. My overhead hoist will cover the entire shop and go 15' out the door. My windows are 4' square and there are 4 of them as well as several smaller ones. Do the closed cell foam insulation in the walls. I passed on the floor heat and put in central air for less $. You will only do this once so do it the way you really want it.

I didn't know you built one, the last time I was by your place it was 8 pm or so and I figured I better keep going, might swing by some time if I get to Brookings

What did you come up with for heat? Going with an outside wood furnace?

probably use lp for the shop, I was thinking about the wood boiler for the house, a new aqua- therm was $7000 some, weve been using a little more electric heat in the house

Thats good news Doug. The building I converted is 40x80 with one half being shop area. The building sits north and south with the shop and big door on the south end. I installed 2 windows per side each being 3 ft high and 4ft long. Yes on the southend, the door has the windows installed in it as it is a rigid hyd. door. The light and warmth coming in those windows on these winter days is wonderful. I am considering adding a third. True on hot summer days perhaps they will allow to much heat gain and that we can solve with the addition of inexpensive window shades. Rod.

We thought we should place it up front so it could be read by anyone interested in putting old iron to work. [Editor] I tried something new today, and it worked so well I thought I should post it - in case it might help someone else. I'm running 100 yards of 4" drain pipe from the gutter downspouts of our house to a pond down the hill. This should hel ... [Read Article]
