I've got the theater where I really enjoy it now so for now it's time for another project....
The wife and I had been contemplating for the past year or so in installing some type of shed in the yard for additional storage. Since my DIY interest has grown wild in the last year or so, we figured since we're getting serious about this project why not make it a combination workshop/storage type area. In typical Gorilla fashion, the scope of the project quickly went from reasonable to what some would consider excessive. We placed a deposit for the builder last Saturday. I'm looking at a 5 week or so lead time, but meanwhile here is a sneak peek at the specs for now for those interested - pics to follow in a few weeks.
-Exterior size: 32L x 12W x 10H
-7' side walls with roof pitched to 10' for overhead storage
-Vinyl siding and window trim, matched to the house
-5 x 24" X 32" double pane windows with shutters to match the house
-6'8" steel reinforced and insulated double doors on one end toward the house, single door in middle (matching), both with 9-lite windows
-Skylight/window above the single door
-Ridge vented for insulation / HVAC
-4x4 pressure treated frame, reinforced floors with 10" on center floor joists (built to handle rail cars from trains)
-Built in 12' wide workbench on the far end away from the double doors
Future plans include full insulation, electric, propane heating system, a 'loft' for overhead storage', and a 5x10 CNC table with all the gadgets. I'll be wiring the electric including a 100A subpanel with 3 x 20A 120V lines and 1 X 30A 240 line for the CNC.
Unfortunately funding this project means selling one of the toy cars. In all honesty I don't mind since I'd get far more use of of this.
