Thanks guys for all your input! obviously there isn't a one way fits all. would make things simpler if it could be! lol I can't imagine a seperate wash bay would be worth it in our case. It would be nice but not worth the extra money! I was hoping to have a pad to wash outside when the weather is nice and curtains of some sort inside when its cold. Would need good ventilation and was wondering if could hook up an hrv system or something to keep it dry in the shop or is a shop too big of an area?
also those pictures of that stand alone crane is something I never thought about! Could get away with a wood frame building and put pilings in to support that crane and could add that anytime in the future!

floor heat(byf Heat Innovations - Home - boilers, PEX Pipe, hydronic fittings, radiant systems, pumps - based in Manitoba, Canada of course), a drain, internet, and a water supply. those are the biggest things for me.


Cold Feet? ...Floor Heat!

best thing needed in a shop is lights, when we upgraded our shop to led it was so much nicer to work in.

I built a 48x80x16 shop (small by most standards) and segregated a 24x40 wash bay in the corner, and it has been one of the best features of the shop. It's accessible to the main shop via a 20x16 overhead door, yet has another 20x16 overhead door to the outside. It has its own ventilation system so all the washing, fabrication welding and painting can be done there without affecting the rest of the shop. Its well worth considering.

Don't cheap out on the concrete quality. You may not need it for strength, but you need it for the extra life it gives the floor finish. 4500 psi minimum, 5,000 psi is better.

Bent it seems that concrete over 31-3300 psi guys do not want to pour around here because it sets up to fast. I have never heard of someone using 4500-5000 psi. That should be quite strong.

I put 50mpa concrete in my shop. What is that psi? I'm not concrete literate.
