Farm shops

Mine started out as an existing leanto off my barn. It could stand to be bigger so I could get more things apart at once(waiting on parts sucks) but it beats the **** out of what I had which was just a concrete pad. 

Here it is a year ago.

Here is mine.  Not on a farm, and the views aren't the best out the door...(I look at a fence about 50' away, but if it wasn't for that, I'd be looking at all of my neighbors garbage).  I built onto it this past spring with the help of the thread author.  

 

 

Also the way it works for our vehicles/driveway and because we are spoiled we park our vehicles inside, and the addition is just the workspace.  It works well for what I need and I like it; I don't have to move a truck when I want to work on something.  Eventually it'll have a welder, drill press, etc.

Here's some pics of the outside of mine. It's a 40x80x14 building. I built her in the late 90s. 40x40 shop and 40x40 shed. Insulted roof and walls. Skylights along the peak of the roof on the south side.

Got any more pictures of that semi truck??  I love old semi trucks.   What is the story on that?   I also like that barn.  It looks like a lot in Southern mi where I'm from.

78? Ford 9000. 290 Cummins, 9 speed with deep reduction, walking beam suspension. It was originally a Tyson feed truck, then a logging truck, then my farm truck. It sat unused for several years, the engine sized up and I couldn't get it freed up. I now run an 85 in 9370 with a 350 Cummins, 13 speed and air ride. I miss the deep reduction transmission.

I built a good shop but it's junked up...

When Mike built the shop, he wanted a mezzanine to store things up above. Below are the bathroom, metal shop, wood shop and Mike's room with the stairway to the mezzanine. And I had to hook up my grandmother's 1927 gold plated chandelier on the upper ceiling. They lived in this shop for about 10 months while their house was getting built.

My office desk upstairs in the mezzanine. The black dial phone behind the radio speaker is hooked up and works. I've used it three times to call and let the Northwest Energy know the power was off. The downstairs digital phone is dead then.

Mike has let me pretty much "decorate" his shop. I've collected old tools for over 70 years. Old Binder Guy or Gary ?

Is the roof sagging?  Are you going to insulate the work shop part?  I see heat beside the tractor.  Nice work area you have.

Here's my shop rebuilt after the 2000 fire ! Lost a forty year collection of stuff and two tractors. Actually I'm better off, all new machinery and most tools. Here are a few pics. Made a small cut off tool this morning and a new hood for my skidder as the old got pretty well bent ! I dropped a tree on it !

Nothing fancy but it works for most our stuff except the combine,. It is heated and yes, the corn planter is stored in the back corner because that's where it fits. Get a pivot fold planter and that won't be a problem fitting in other sheds. Built in 2000. Need to build a bigger one or expand it.

The last 2 pictures are of the shop of my early youth. That's right, worked on crap in the yard next to the old wood shed where all the tools were crammed in. Now it lumber/spare parts and junk we might need storage

No, the roof is not sagging.  Looks that way but it isn't.  Or at least it's sound and I'm not concerned about it.  

 

The addition is (well all of it is really) insulated, apart from the roof and doors.  The heater I had going yesterday got it up 20 degrees in 60 min from 32 to 55.  Not too shabby, but enough to start the tools and vise to start sweating.

After viewing all the lovely shops shown, I consider myself very lucky. Seeing as how I have not one, but two, (count em) gi-hugic shops. But all in all, both of em are pretty sucky..... And the nighttime light situation leaves a bit to be desired, as well as the fall/winter heating elements, to say nothing about the heated floor and abundant space for spare parts and tool storage. But, there is no limit for improvement don't cha know.

Can we get a little more info on the wood boiler, size, run time, how many cords of wood per year and what kind? What is your climate like?
