Well I think I’m done with my shop. We built a 40X80X12, has a natural gas185K btu infrared tube heater and plenty of LED lighting.

Duct work is Norfab

Thought I would post some pics.

NOTE: I worked out of a two car garage with smaller tools on rolling bases for a long time.

That’s a fantastic space, now how fast can you fill it up? I’m still in the planning phase of a 30’ x 50’ x 14’ at my property after just finishing my 16’ x 22’ shed in the back yard. Mentally, I already filled a 30’ x 40’ so stretched it an additional 10’ and I can tell, it too will be full shortly after completion.
