Its an interesting thought. But, those things are only 8' wide, right? Most rooms in my current house are wider than 8' on the narrow side. I trying to visualize the layout of furniture in a bedroom 8' x 20' and I'm having a tough time.

I can definitely see it for a shop/garage/man cave-castle, but the whole house? I'm guessing being single would be a plus in this sort of dwelling.

The whole reason we have our shops and garages, AKA Man Caves.

For container houses, they are commonly butted together and a plasma cutter cuts out two connecting sides to make a 16' wide x 40 ' space with little re-inforcement needed. You initially spend 2500.00 for a container that is 8x40.

just like trailer homes - single and double wides...

I surprised I don't see more of them down here...

I am commencing my own shop project.

I recently moved into a new place, which has a pole barn on the property.



I am going to frame part of the inside, which shall become a heated and air conditioned shop.

It's sparsely populated at the moment, which is just fine.



Basically, for now I am going to frame in two fifths of the pole shed, and leave three fifths for future expansion, and general storage.

I'm rather excited about it, I ordered the first $1500 of raw materials yesterday.

I ummed and ahhed about it, but have settled on sheathing the walls in OSB rather than sheetrock. While you can make the sheetrock look really really nice if taped, filled and sanded, I really can't be arsed, and I like the OSB for being able to screw things to it. Of course, it could still use bracing for heavier stuff like cabinets.

I have done my intial framing design, but there is more refinement needed yet. I have discovered that the 24" centers I was planning for the ceiling joists won't do, and it needs to be 16" centers.

It's fun learning new stuff.

One friend has an exterior style plywood bead board for his interior walls another has corrugated metal. Just throwing out ideas.

Good ideas. I was considering using light gauge pre painted metal for the ceiling. Thought it might be easy to install and throw lots of light around.

Yeah, in the right area of the country during the right season, that would be wonderful.

Yeah, T1-11 would look a little better on the inside - more rustic and should take paint better than OSB. But its maybe 2x the price of OSB.

Ok, I'm somewhat confused. Are you going to be building the framed object you designed inside the pole barn? If so, none of the wall members will be supporting anything other than the interior sliding. 24" OC should be plenty strong enough for that.

If you're just looking to finish out part of the inside of the pole barn, I would maybe do things differently.

I'll look at that T1-11. I have 16 OSB panels but still need more, so I'm still open. Cost is a consideration.....but it needs to be good too.

Yes, the framed box is going inside the pole barn, but it has to support a ceiling and Minnesota capable insulation. I think 24" centres ought to do it, but according to the chart I used, 16ft span needs 2X6's on 16" centers, which looks like overkill.

On the other hand, over strong is OK and it didn't add too much to the cost. I now have sufficient 2X6's for the 16" centres.

Well, over strong is a plus in my book. Insulation is light, but sheet rock is heavy. I've used this span calculator before.

It looks like a 10 psf live and dead load in SPF will use a 2x8 with 24" oc. But you'll have to be leery of sheet rock sag with 24" oc. If you're planning to store stuff on top of the joists, you'll need to increase the load in the calculation. Be aware that the calculator takes into account the grade of the wood and some grades are significantly more costly than others. It may be cheaper overall to go with a lower grade of wood, but larger dimension.

Also, its wise to have your ceiling joists on top of the studs in the wall. You're drawing doesn't always show those lined up. Lastly, code may require a double top plate. If you're doing the permit thing, then you need to check into that. Also window sizing may come into play if the space is conditioned.
