A 100x100 toy shop!!!! Wow! A garden shed would pretty much do me.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

My brother and I are almost finished with our new shop. It's stick built, and we put bonus room trusses on it. The shop is 50x76, and bonus room is 15x76. 20' on one end will be office space. Area under the stair landing is used for toilet, kitchen, storage etc. air compressor fit under the stairs.

That’s cool. Do you know the price difference of those trusses vs a regular one ?

I wonder what the weight load up there could be?

As a farmer, you learn quick: “You don’t get anything that you don’t work hard for”

Always wanted one kind of like that, but with the barn style poking up even more, where there's some side windows. We're so flat, if you get a few feet up in the air you see 15 or 20 miles.

Back to topic, for the OP.

We're still in the finishing up stages of doing and office/shop/apartment.


Doubt many can afford to do what they want, and even doing what you can is maybe more of a quality of life thing, than making financial sense.

Anyways, we had all the arguments posted here. Didn't want the noise or dust, or employee access to business stuff they maybe shouldn't see. Spending more money, when everybody already has an office at home, etc. etc.

But in the end, with 3 of us partners all having stuff at home. We wanted all the business stuff together, and then there's the Mice Will Play While The Cats Away. Figure we'll get more out of the help if we're putting in the hours in an office, vs going home and leaving them unsupervised. Plus it gives a place to meet with business people who come out like insurance, bank, etc., vs meeting them at your house.


So with money, or lack there of, plus tight space requirements. We did a two story office/aparment in one end of the shed. We pushed the numbers on every conceivable way of doing it, and this was the only way to fit our budget and space.

Lean to would probably have been better and in budget if we had the room. Seperate office while not tons more money, was enough more that there was no way we could make it work.

If I remember right, it cost us an extra 8k for the bonus trusses. All in, with the extra electrical, sheathing, insulation, etc., we're about 12k into the bonus area. I think it is around $11-$12 p/sq ft. We wanted to consolidate all the paperwork into one location, and this was the cheapest way we could figure to do that. The extra 55' of space will have shelves built down one wall for longer term storage stuff, try to keep the clutter off the shop floor to maximize working space was the goal.

As mentioned, holding meetings in the shop is a better place to conduct business than in my house.

I put in a lunch/break room with a table and office type chairs. That's where I have meetings now.

Also a nice bonus is when friends stop by for a beer, we always meet in the shop now.
