Default back yard shop pic heavy

I have posted up a few different threads requesting information/sourcing for this project. I wanted to put up a specific thread for the project. It is a 30 x 30 inside with 30 x 20 covered carport. Primary use is for hobby projects like the restoration project of a 69 c-10 for my son. The wife and I have wanted this for years, and we finally decided to pull the trigger this spring as we get closer and closer to being annexed by the city of Georgetown. I am currently waiting on doors and for it to dry out so I can unload the mill and lathe I acquired for it. It has been a learning experience. Here are some pics of the project to date.

Yeah. Wasnít happy they didnít put plastic down as requested. They did put the beams in deeper and wider than quoted though.

You can do it but you generally put plastic to keep moisture out. May not be an issue in Georgetown but over here in ETX I think you would have wet concrete most of the time.

One of our shops didnt have plastic. It was terrible, soaking wet concrete, mold, mildew. It worked fine for storing farm equipment, not good for much else.

Had to work Saturday so I hammered down on Sunday. With some help from friends we were able to get the pads for the side door entry and the air compressor poured. Then we moved on to the ceiling tin and lights. I am paying the price this morning. The garage doors were installed on Tuesday last week. I am very happy with them. Its nice to sealed up. Getting the machine equipment unloaded wasn't as difficult as expected. Used a hoist and hung them from the beam. I did add some support to the beam. I didn't want to pull it down. Next up is putting up the tin and barn wood on the walls as I have time throughout the upcoming rut. Name:  43878629_10217085495959549_4462535900319973376_o.jpg

congrats. I hope that slab holds up well. We are not far from georgetown and had to put 3 feet or road base down because the black gumbo soil moves so much

Started with some finish out work on the walls. It's slow going with deer season and our bust work season. I don't have enough old fence wood to complete the project. If anyone knows where I could get some old cedar fencing for use inside let me know. Thanks.

Man, that looks great! I'm sure you will love it!

Take it or leave it, but consider getting a dehumidifier. Without the vapor retarder (plastic is not truly a barrier as advertised/in application) you will likely have condensation issues. Running a dehumidifier should help--especially during the monsoon season.

Craigslist is a good source for old cedar. Good luck!

Sorry for the delay. I used Concrete Lift Tech. I think they are based in Cedar Park area. Jene Shaw is his name. 512-801-6306 He did a good job. My only recommendation is to be very specific as to what you want covered, otherwise he will spray it. He did good keeping it off the floor, doors and windows that were specified.

Finished with the bottom half of the walls with the tin and pegboard. Starting in the woodwork up top and I am excited. I think it looks great.

The base is 3'x3'. The compressor at it's widest is 28". it is 5,-6" tall so the short end/open end is 6'. The tall end is to the purling/framework for support. Thanks.
