Ok, A long overdue update on the now 99% completed shed. I have only had a few hours here and there to work on it this fall and now winter is coming fast so I am getting some stuff transferred in there from the garage.

Insulation -R12 FG in walls then r3 foam over that. R 36 FG in ceiling( I had lots of r12 around so 3 layers went in there) Vapor barrier then Gyprock. Somehow I can't find any photos of the drywall install. I probably didn't take any. Just wanted to get it done! Primed and painted, installed lights, switches etc. I have 6 ceiling lights in total so I can get lots of light for painting etc. 5 AC outlets and a 240v welder outlet. Baseboard electric heat with a thermostat that can be turned completely off.

Built a ramp. Ended up using joist hangers on the top of it. Used the proper Hex head galvanized screws to attach the hangers to the shed and cut the ramp "joists at an angle like a roof rafter. I fastened them on to the hangers with a couple of nails and there is some movement available on the bottom end of the ramp in case of frost heave. We don't get much heave here due to the gravelly soil and I have one corner of a deck sitting on a block and it has never moved in 10+ years.

The ramp ended up being a lot higher than I expected, so a lot of fill was needed to build up the ground in front of it. I will add some side boards to it to keep from sliding off the sides.

Got it finished inside, put down a layer of 3/8" plywood and painted it with that deck restore paint. It's thick and has grit in it. It did a nice job of sealing the floor and gives good traction. You can't even see the nail heads. It was on sale cheap and did the job. Built a workbench out of stuff I had left over or laying around. Also built a wooden shelf unit with reenforced bottom and middle shelves to put heavy stuff on. I have started to move stuff in. I think my first equipment job will be to bring in the walk behind blower and change the oil, clean and lub etc.

Thanks guys. Now all I need is the time to get out there and work! I moved the 317 out there this afternoon. That will be it's home for the winter. Got the walk behind blower serviced before I put the 317 in there. Now it's all ready to go when the snow flies! Still cleaning up and reorganizing in the garage. Once it's all cleaned up I'll take the loader off the 2320 and put the front blade on. It's nice to be able to open the doors on both sides of the car without hitting a tractor or some other gear I had stashed in there.

Very nice job on the shed build. It goes right along with your garage. Show us more of the inside when you get done. Thanks for sharing.

With that much insulation, it shouldn't be too bad on the electric bill. Nice job, perfect size for a repair center. Bring one in and fix it. No place to let stuff linger.
