Been thinking about building one since all we have is a quonset uninsulated and no heat. Really want a 80x80 with 20' sidewalls. Cost will dictate what gets built. Guy has to dream.

40 x 66 here too, 31 years ago, but still the best investment on the farm. Any size, well insulated, big enough door, will be useful when COLD and HOT. I sent many winter days in shop, maintenance, modifications, wood work. If wood working have a separate room, with filtered return air to keep dust in. Floor drains, lots of bright white LED's, chose your heat system. Enjoy!

Finally warmer, seeding in progress(

40x60 comes to just under 100000 for building and concrete with floor heat probly be another 2- 4 for boiler and would budget 10 for electrical lights are expensive

$5-60 sqft maybe a good budget number ?

10 years ago we did a 50x100 for about $40. Radiant heat. Full bathroom. Parts room. Floor drain. Paid for all labour. Didn’t include dirt work ahead of time.

Brent.

We put up a 40x40 close to ten years ago, seemed expensive enough at the time. Once the last payment was made I thought "that wasn't so bad", for just a couple more payments could have gone another 10 feet bigger. Really wish now we had at least gone 40 x 50, 40 gets tight sometimes, maybe if we didn't keep so much unnecessary crap in there, it wouldn't be so bad.

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!

Same here 40x40 dad built in the early 90's and it was huge then... the only thing that is a benefit to the smaller size it does force you not store too much crap in it.

One thing I would also consider is an separate, attached office/break/restroom area. It would be nice for a desk, computer, parts manuals, monitors, etc. Don't like walling one off in the shop bay and giving up premium space.
shmiffy and kevlar like this.

my two cents worth would be to put in two doors. I have 50x60 with one 22x16 door and im forever shuffling equipment around and having to plan what goes in and out in what order. two doors would have been a lot handier for what I do in the shop (mostly service/repair). even a smaller second door like a 14x14 would be really handy
