Steve - on the electrical - it is a 60 amp service 120-240 volt sub panel - there are three light circuits, 2 outlet circuits and one compressor circuit , 12 outlets, one outside light, 6 / 8' strip fluorescent lights and three switches. That is probably more information than you wantedd but that does the electrical.
Eric - the building is a Cleary Building Corp. - they call them a pre-Engineered Buildings - You design the type of building and they will pre - cut everything for you. Then its trucked to your property and set up. This is the outside shell only - the concrete, electrical, and interior walls are up to you to construct. On the dust collection system - the pipes run to a separator and then into the vacuum system which is inside the building (with a great muffler to limit the noise). I would of loved to had a stick building but the cost of this building was just half the price of the stick building.
Ike - the downdraft table(sanding table) works really well and I have very little sawdust to deal with.
And thanks again for the comments guys.

Great shop and great job photographing it so the rest of us can learn from it. Is the building a kit building or is it from scratch so to speak? Also, I saw the dust collection piping but never the collector, did you opt to put it outside or did I just miss it? Thanks again for sharing this.

Larry - I have a friend just starting a project like yours. What size electrical service have you installed to power up this place?

Rick - I guess I call it a metal building because of the exterior finish which is a metal siding. Thinking about that I guess its a miss - term of wording - but then again a wood sided building would be a wood building? Also thanks for the complements on the shop - about the insulation - if you look up at the ceiling - there is 2.5" of insulation called building wrap which goes all over the building - I then had a 2" air space - 3.5 inches of batting in the 2 x 4 interior walls and exterior T1-11 siding for the finished walls on the inside. And Larry B. yes it does get cold here - anywhere from -20 (extreme) to 105 in the summer. The gas heat in the shop does wonders and only costs about $50 bucks a month. No air conditioning except a window fan and mother nature's cooling breeze - sometimes about 40 mph.

that is a dream shop for sure.
you really know what your doing.
but i'm wondering, as i look at these
great pictures, why do you call it a
metal building?

Great shots Dave. A labor of love no doubt. I remember my first shop, 12'x12'. The only power tool I had was electric lights. Learned a lot about sand paper and hand tools.

You have a nice shop, about the size as mine. You must live in a warm climate, as I see no insulation. Injoy your new shop, and keep the sawdust flowing.
