On Saturday we signed the deal for a new shop to be built on site.  It is going to be  20 X 26 on a concrete slab.  A small local company is doing the work.  When they were out here a week or so ago looking over where a I wanted the shop it was decided that some dirt would have to be brought in for grading.  Well this morning at 8:30 AM we were just waking up and I heard all this noise out side.  I jump up and there are 2 trucks dumping dirt.  Needless to say I didn't expect things to start happening this quickly.

 

It will still take a while, they are ordering the building today and it will probably be Feb. before they put it up.  I'm going to try and take pictures and update this thread as it progresses.  I won't know how to act with all that space.

I hope you still feel that way next year instead of asking what happened to all that space and wondering why you didn't make it twice as big.

Congrats Bill. I'm sure you will enjoy the new shop. I find I have trouble with getting enough light in my garage. Make sure you have lots of light and a way to add more if you need it.

Now you really didn't mind being woke up that way did you.

 

Everyone needs a nice shop and it sounds like you are on your way to that. Never can have to many outlets nor plugs and lighting.

Ditto all of that, especially the plug-ins. Twice as many as you think you'll need will probably just about do it! Can you get running water piped in---- that's unbelievably handy if it's possible to do. The only thing greater than working on a new shop is playing in it! Congratulations.

Not sure if it the case where you live but a lot of times the "height restriction" has to do with the available fire fighting equipment.  The town that I live in has a couple of ladder trucks but they can only reach up to the 3rd-4th floor so they wont let anyone build a building taller than they can SAFELY and EFFECTIVELY fight a fire in.
