Looking good. Can you post a bit more info about the build such as slab thickness, and type of construction you are using? Do you have some elevation drawings to post? How long do you anticipate the construction to take?

I am starting a new one in May. 60x72 stick built with in floor heat. I sure hope its big enough. I cant wait! It will be good to follow and see how yours turns out.

Copo, the slab will be 4" in single story areas and 6" where 18' ceiling height to allow for heavier storage requirements and lifts. It is 2x6 stick built walls, Almost flat roof slope as to allow me to get 18' ceilings without exceeding height restrictions and keeping its overall height lower than the primary residence as I didn't want to "dwarf" the house visually.

Hi Jonesy, My last one was 50x75 and it was enough but I was always tripping over stuff on the floor so this one is a little bigger floor space but more storage up second level. I am hoping that is the sweet spot.. good luck with your build and start a thread so we can see how yours is working out as well. Like cars, we can learn from others mistakes/successes. I know I have made many of both..

Here is a front elevation:

My old one had a 2nd story storage. Great in concept but it really sucks hauling stuff up and down the stairs. I built wider stairs for that reason but it still sucks. I am trying to build this one bigger and add a lower level area for storage with a separate door.

I took that into consideration from experience at my last shop and the main portion of storage upstairs is open to below so if stairs isn't appropriate, I either stack items on my 4 post extra tall lift and raise to max height right next to the second level and unload or use my tractor with forklift attachment and set it off on second floor level..
