    Has your building permit been approved?

    Took sliding a long wheel base 10 under the table, but finally got it thru.

    Our HOA out here are a bunch of useless nothings. They're all crooked as Hwy 7 and like the Clinton family on a smaller scale.

    I know what you mean. That's why I don't have a shop. Our HOA says that it has to be constructed of the same material as the home. So that would be brick with architectural shingles. Must be on a slab and plumbed. I'd like to have a big shop with one end facing the pool and use some of it as a "pool house." But I couldn't imagine how much it would cost to build it like I would have to, so that it met the standards of our HOA. Probably $25K+. I'll just continue to keep my boat and ranger in my 3 car garage and park outside. I'm allowed to have one vehicle parked outside (visible from the street). Most frustrating thing is, 2 houses down, a guy has a 30x40 metal shop but his was "grandfathered" in as his was the first house built in our neighborhood. I think it looks perfectly fine and don't understand why we can't all have one.

    Thanks - raised my first wall Saturday. Set the trusses on Sunday. Been lathing in the afternoons after work.

    I am almost to the point I wish I would have paid someone else to do it.

    Got a quote yesterday on having someone else do the metal. $8,500 labor only. So I guess I'll be doing that myself too!

    my neighbor and i both built 30 x 30 x 10 post form shops.. his has bubble insulation and mine has white plastic backed insulation. my shop is 10 to 15 degrees cooler in the summer and easier to heat in the winter. since we are neighbors, you need to come look at both and see the differance. just my 2 cents but i think the plastic backed is better insulating

    Have the walls and ceiling spray foamed. Best money you'll spend on your shop. Call reeves insulation in batesville. He's very good, neat and very reasonable on price. He did my 30'x60' with 13' side walls and the roof joist for $5,100. Shops like a giant yeti cooler

    I know a guy that does insulation so I am going to have him spray it. Going to spray the walls and cellulose the ceiling.

    You find out who your real friends are when it comes to building a shop. Turns out I ain't got none.

    I bet I have some come time to have a poker night out there tho.

    My dad, in his late 50's has helped me more than anyone. If not for him I'd be far from where I am. He went to Miami last week for hurricane work and no telling when he'll get back so flying solo again.

    Setting them 5x5 posts and hanging them rafters by myself wasn't fun. Hard to hold a 16' post, level it, measure it, and nail it.
