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 building is 48' x 48' x 16' divided half with half being the shop and the other half being a carport for storing our RV and jon boat.  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.

I paid $5,000 for the lot that overlooks the creek with city water, sewer, and natural gas. A bargain! Look for the town of Yellville, AR. It's a very special place.
