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.maybe if we didn't keep so much unnecessary crap in there, it wouldn't be so bad.
I have a 40'x50'x14' with lean-to on each side. I don't have time to spend all winter in the shop but it works for putting in a couple of items when I need to. I wish the ceiling was higher to work on top of the combine and such, and sometimes I wish it was longer so I could fit the whole semi in, but not very often.hoping to build heated shop this summer 40x60 18 ceiling and 25x16 door what does everyone else have and suggestions
We built the same size shop but we put two doors in a 22x16 for the big door in the end and a 12x12 in the side .. I wish we would have put a bigger big door in tho.. the 16 foot door seems tall enough I can get everything we have in no problem.. we seem to use the small side door way more than the big one .. we also put 3 man doors in and a sea can on the one side so we can keep all the junk out of the shop .. I would highly recommend a the side door .. oh and don't cheap out on electricalhoping to build heated shop this summer 40x60 18 ceiling and 25x16 door what does everyone else have and suggestions
