I will have water run to the shop but I want to get all my stuff moved in and get a feel for the space before I take up 15-20 sq ft for a bathroom! The sewer line runs right out front of where my shop is going so I am planning to put a sleeve through the footings so I can easily tie into it in the future.

Im going 9’ walls with a vaulted ceiling and definitely doing 110/220 plugs as frequently as possible. Getting a double 3’0”x 6’8” full height glass doors on the front (got a steal on them, $200.00 for the pair from on of the suppliers I use at work) and putting two large window units in the front also. I have also come into a nearly free mini split HVAC system that I will be installing so It will be fully conditioned! I am doing a 8×12 room with exterior access for the lawn mower and additional storage so it will all stay out of the shop space. Also going to spend a little extra to build on a taller crawl space so I can run all my dust collection under the floor and have access to change it easily later. As for my wife agreeing to a detached shop…. I typically work in the shop after she goes to bed since I get 2-3 hours less sleep and function fine so I made sure to run all the LOUD tools at night to help speed up the process hahaha!
