Looks good.   Only question I have is;  Why isn't it green trimmed in yellow?  :D        Rick

Looks nice.   A little diff construction than I'm aware of, but not familiar with metal siding I guess.  What's that little arm over the front doors? Looks like old sign arm, yet also a light lift connection?? Wait!  Old style barn light isn't it?  Just hit me to be that.  Gonna drywall or other?  I did my garage with 4ft drywall from bottom, then 4ft particle or similar board on top for mounting things and being tougher, finished with 2 ft drywall because of height.  All painted white to be brighter. Now, so covered you can barely see any wall!  Ceiling I used that silver sided foam board to help insulate. It needs wood strips tho at each joint. I never did that and is wanting to come down in some areas at seams with insulation pushing down on it. I used those plastic washer type nails to hold up and once in awhile those pop loose and drop to floor. Cement ramps to drive/walk in now?

That double-bubble insulation really does wonders for keeping the outside temps outside.  I figure you will be adding fiberglass batting also?

Arm is for hanging things for spray painting, some part of an old weight bench that I bought for the weights.

 

OSB on the solid wall. "slat-board" & 1/4" plywood on the rest. 

 

Wood deck under double doors with steps & ramp.

That looks real good, 14x20 is what my new chicken house is.... big enough to be useful, small enough to keep warm, and it forces me to keep the clutter to a minimum. Just something I'm wondering about, am I the only one who likes a good two foot overhang for an eve?

Till I finally got guttering on the front of my shed and new shop, I sure wished for an extended overhang.  When raining, just the time it took to unlock the shop door could get me soaked!

Looks good. I think those guys have put up one or two of those.

Are you going to put any kind of awning over the door?

Had to go pick up a half of a beef this morning, part of the farm rent, so I didn't get in the shop until afternoon. Unpacked the Kobalt sliding miter saw & set it up, brought in the scaffold, shop lights & some other things to get started.Shop 2016 024 - Copy.JPG

 

Also set up a temporary work bench & drove a few nails for temporary hangers and hung the breaker box.  Shop 2016 025 - Copy.JPG

Yes, R19 in the ceiling (which is already done) & the walls!
