Walhalla, SC 29691
United States

Broke ground late Spring 2020, so far the work has been just myself with the build. From digging the footers up to the ridge. It has been a good build and even though it is some work at times. I feel good about the progress, with building during the evenings and weekends. At present the roof sheathed and felted.

The shop, footprint is 16’ x 32’ with a gambrel roof with a loft at each end. The small covered porch at the end, will be a nice sitting area to ponder the next steps in any build project down the road.

Thanks for viewing, I have been inspired by some of you folks here, and I hope to pass that on to others.

Here it is 2020, and I finally broke ground on a shop building, 16’ x 32 footprint. Been excited to get this build underway, I have everything scheduled out and should be finished by Labor Day.

Hi Tony, – I did start up a blog for this shop build. Posted a sketch so folks can get an idea of the build. I’ll do my best to keep it updated and photos.

Thank You Calvin13

This project has been all me in the build, except for the overhead door install (got a deal there) and I will call an electrician to hook up the service panel when the time comes.

It is a good feeling to say “Hey I did that” and I know what is in it to. Looking forward to setting it up in a few months.
