I was fortunate enough to get to build my dream shop last summer. It is filled with a lifetime of buying, selling and trading up to the tools I currently own.

The shop is built on the edge of a bluff that overlooks our famous 'Crooked Creek'. I built a deck that hangs out over the bluff affording us an awesome view. The shop has a bathroom, work sink, refrigerator for the beer, dust collection, compressed air throughout and a security system inside and out. There is upstairs storage as well. I did a lot of research on the type of building to build and settled on an insulated metal building. Very impressed with the builder. Actual working time including concrete was a total of only 4 days! I did all the finish work myself. Total investment in the complete building was about $60,000 including the cost of the lot. The building unfinished was about $30,000. Very pleased and happy.
