The heater was a good buy; not really spendy. I think I got it at Home Depot. With your area, it should be fine.

My shop is 40x60 with 16 foot sills. I have four ceiling fans that run in reverse, slowly to move the air. It takes the chill off just fine, but you are not going to run it on a small bottle wide open, there just isnt enough vapor. I am eying a 25 gallon (I think that what it is) tank at the local place to get some more BTUs out of it. And it doesnt get REALLY cold here in the orange groves.

This is great thread and it took me two days to read through all of it. Picked up some great ideas from everyone.

Well after making do in a 22x20 house garage for the past 16 years I have started a complete new "man castle". Work started Dec. 6th with 4 loads of dirt down. It has been a it slow since because my builder is sort of busy right now. We do have a slab down and a connection drive slab in place. Framing will begin monday Dec. 27th. The new shop will be a 20x20 slab on grade, conventionally framed walls 2x4's. There will be a gable style roof with a roof pitch to match my house which is 8 on 12. 3 tab asphalt shingle roof with overhangs to match my home. One 9'x7' roll up door along with a 3' entry door. I am adding only one window for security reasons. Theft out here in the county right now is rampant with all the meth heads looking for easy things to steal. The siding will be plywood covered with hardie board 7" wood grain "look" siding. Painted to my spec and trim will match my house. I am finishing out the interior walls. My dad (old retired electrician/do it all) will be wiring the entire building. It will have 220 power, a lot of receptacles, plenty of florescent lighting (you never can have enough when working on motorcycles). I live in the deep south so AC will be added come spring, as for heat it does not get that cold here and a space heater will work fine. The attic will be floored and have a drop down stairwell for access. I will be sealing the floor. It will be wired for TV, can't miss the races or football games. I can't wait to get this project over and move in.

My two wheel herd has thinned this year. By design, I got tired of all the up keep. I started '10 with 7 bikes and I am down to 4 in Dec. with one for sale at a local shop (see my sig). I do have a new Yamaha coming May 2011 (Super Tenere) so I still will own 4 motorcycles. My wife wants a new daily cage driver. She has a '06 Honda S2000 right now that she wants to park so it will be stored in this shop which limits my space. But the S2000 is a small car to begin with so that may be a mute issue. Once all the stuff is out of my house garage it will seem huge and I will leave some items over there. I have a Nomar tire changer that will be mounted in the new shop I currently use the hitch mount on it. It is too easy to fill up spaces with stuff.

I wanted to build bigger and could have if I had located the shop on the other side of my property. But dealing with a homeowners association they told me no extra driveway. County building codes limited me to under 24' before all their issues come into play. Larger would have looked stupid where I am building now. It would have overwhelmed my existing garage directly across from the new one. Plus I would have had a tie back slope issue any larger than 20'.

Some pics:

Very cramped garage at the start of 2010


Current existing garage minus one motard


Dirt pad


Forming done, steel was added the next day.


Concrete down. Framing next.


I will check back in a week or so with a follow up. I hope to be completed and moved in at least by Febuary 2011. Weather is up and down here so that may delay things.

As for how much this will cost me. I will have about $16k+/- after it is all said and done. Remember that is with me and my dad completing the interior.

Looks great!

What is that, that looks like a trench in the third picture down?

Looks forward to watching the build
