I guess its about time to start this thread since I am waiting on my shop kit to arrive sometime this afternoon. I ordered my kit from www.versatube.com I wanted something that would be fairly cheap, sturdy, insulated, and easy to put up. From the videos on youtube, it seems real easy. Shop is 24 wide X 20 deep with 10' wall height. It will have 1 walk door and a 10x10 roll up door. I am limited on the size of the building based on where I want it. My rig will fit in it and still leave room to walk around it. Small enough to keep the wife's stuff OUT! I could have put up a 24x36 on the lower side of my yard, but I dont want to have to walk across the yard to get a screwdriver. This shop will be right behind my house connected to the current driveway. I will be putting a doggie door in the back so the dogs will have a fawkin huge dog house.

I got the concrete poured the Thursday we all left to come to Harlan. It is well cured out now and ready to start building on. I will post up pictures as I progress. I hope to have it completed before the new year. Shouldnt be too hard since I am off for 2 weeks almost.

Well, the frame package turned into a clusterfawk. Each pallet (10' long) wasnt supposed to weigh more than 1000#. I got a bobcat s130 to unload. The frame package weighed 1850#. Luckily the truck had a liftgate and we got the pallet spun around on the gate and lowered to the ground. I half slid, half lifted that SOB to the back yard. Half the time the pallet was off the ground, the other half time the back 2 tires of the skidsteer were off the ground. Teeter totter effect was rockin strong.

Guess Ill need to rent the s175 for the sheetmetal pallet...

Unpackaged the pallet and HOLY$H!+. Its gonna take me an afternoon to sort out all of the pieces.

All in all, this SOB is gonna be beef!

I couldnt find a pic on their website that looks anything close to what I will have. The standard for a 24' wide building is 2 garage doors. I only wanted 1. The siding is charcoal gray vertical metal. The roof and trim are dark red metal.

It secures to the concrete using wedge anchors about every 4'. I will also squirt some liquid nails under the rails before I anchor it down to seal it tight.

Quality control. I want it to be right and know exactly how everything is done.

Same reason we build our own rigs instead of paying somebody else to do it. Pride, price, sense of accomplishment.

That first beer sitting in my new shop will taste sooooo good.

Speaking of sitting in my shop, does anybody have a POS yota bench seat sitting around anywhere? Gonna put a frame on the bottom to have a "nice" place to sit.

I got a bunch of quotes from the other "carport" style building dealers. The versatube building is about $700 more, but it has the insulation option and 2x3 tube instead of 2x2. The other ones included installation, but Im not worried about that. I would have spent the $700 savings plus some in figureing out how to insulate the other options. I wasnt crazy about having the blue foam board showing overhead and whatever means of holding it up.

This building kit comes with the same kind of insulation you see in pole barns. 50" wide rolls of insulation/vapor barrier.

Around 6300. That includes the R10 insulation, 10x10 commercial roll up door, all framing, all sheetmetal, and all of the screws. Ill probably be at 11k when it is done.

Not yet. Because of where the meter is on my house, I will have to get a new service dropped on the shop. I would have to cut 20' of concrete and hand dig about 50' because the shop line would parallel the house line for a good way. Once I get the structural inspection, I can start wiring. Once I have the final electrical inspection, I can get Duke to bring me juice.

50 isnt too bad depending on how deep the minimum burial is for your city/county. Just make sure they don't want to check that for inspection. Made that mistake once before and had to dig it alllllllllllllllll back up. Like 100feet worth that had to be buried IIRC 24" deep. (Inside city limits of Hickory).

Im talkin hand dig because the feed line for my house is in the same place the line from the house to the shop would be. I really dont want to sink a shovel into the feed line for my house.

Ill just let Duke bring a mini ex out and put the line in. Where the meter/panel will be is only about 25' from the pole.
