Default 45 x 67 Woodshop/Metalshop-Garage-Mancave

I have really enjoyed the garages being shared on this forum and I have some time to share mine (that was built during the summer and fall of 2008) while I am at the hospital waiting for my wife to have our second child. Currently trying to get the time to complete electric rough-in completed so I can insulate and put up the sheeting on the walls. Problem is I made the mistake of moving all my "stuff" in and it is always in the way when you want to do one higher priority project or another and just gets moved from place to place. My goal is to get the interior buttoned up before this winter. My wife, Crystal, told me that I can work on whatever I want in the yard and shop the rest of the years as soon as I complete the tile installation in her MB shower and on the garden tub surround. I asked her if I could get that in writing but I'll take what I can get. Was busy most of 2009 with Volunteer Fire Department training and Overtime at work and this year I am finally going to get some time work on it.

Here is a link to the plans I started with and then had modified to suit my projected needs.

Here is the final design from the builder:

Here are some pictures of the floor poured and the lumber for the walls waiting to go up.















Gracie makes the foundation look "small".

Walls are up and it is starting to look bigger. I thought I didn't make it big enough when it was just the foundation. I wish I could have been more involved in the actual construction, but wife told me no, since I was still remodeling two baths and the kitchen in the house I had lived in since 1996 and we had lived in since 2001. I was able to talk her into letting me build the deck, install the trim and doors, tile the MB shower, finish the basement and both bonus rooms, and the interior finishing in the shop and garage. All of these projects were going on at pretty much the same time. Looking back, I am glad I listened to her and I don't know how I got everything done and got any sleep.

Here are some more pictures from a few days later when the rafters, wall sheeting, and roof sheeting have been added to the structure. Nice looking man cave I ended up with in the bonus room above the woodshop/metalshop portion of the building that would have just ended up as a huge waste of space.





















View from the middle of our 2.45 acre lot looking towards the road.

Vinyl Siding going on to match the house that is being built at the same time.













Siding done.







Scratch Coat is installed for the stone work that will be done on the front of the shop so it blends in and matches the two sections on the house that will have stone work.





Garage floor on the house getting ready to be poured.





Walls up on House's three car garage for the daily drivers.











View of where the stairway will be, from the kitchen, going up to the bonus room that will be above the house garage.



Stairway going down to the basement from the house garage. Second stairway to basement to make moving things into the basement easier compared to the main L-shaped stairway from the great room in the house.

We built the house and shop before I found this wonderful place and all the ideas and ingenuity that is being shared, but I felt like sharing my build from start to finish to even though it has been done since the end of 2008.

Yes, that is cause we needed the shop done first so we could have storage for all our "stuff" from the old house so we could get it on the market and try sell it before the new house is done. Unfortunately, it didn't matter since we were unlucky enough to start our build around the time the USA real estate market decided to tank and ended up having our old house on the market for a year and the only thing our real estate agent did was just keep telling us to lower the price. So we ended up pulling it off the market and renting it out.

Makes it so much easier to move the exercise and recreation equipment in. Not to mention the furniture and softner salt.
