New Cub Shop


Mr. Plow

Recommended Posts

This year the new Cub shop goes up.  

30x48x11, concrete floor, 8x18 door, 9x12 door, std 16" stud framing, 4:12 truss roof.  100A electric,  water, insulated and heated.

New culvert is in, dirt cut off for gravel drive, sidewalk cut into yard.  Needs driveway gravel and water service installed then builders can have at it....

All done with Cub Cadet motive power!

Steve - I think COUGAR766 is making good advice in your case. I see you getting a plasma cutting table and a bigger plasma cutter, and possibly some used machine tools like a surface grinder, radial arm drill press, band saw, A mill, and a bigger air compressor.

   I had 200 Amp to my house, and split off 100a to my shop, 28 years later I've never tripped a breaker.  Thing I'm most short of is room for storage. Shop was 24x36 originally, a 24x24 addition to it would be nice.

Good Friday was a great day to stub out water service, add some drain tile and clean up some grading.

Today they dumped 45 tons of 1"-3" base and 5 more tons of CA6 for the driveway.   Went to the farm for the big gun to move the 1x3 rock.

Spread it all this evening and then wheel packed it with the 684.

Concrete gets formed Thursday,  poured Friday and then side walk and apron on Monday!

I appreciate the advice on the electric service.  200 amp would take quite a bit of work to rebuild the service entrance to the house.  For several reasons (mostly siding added around the entrance and need to add master disconnect per new utility rules) I am going to stick with 100A for now.  I have been getting by on 3 20A garage circuits and a 30A 220v piggybacked off dryer for this long......having a couple more circuits will be extra nice.   With just one person working, it's hard to get too crazy with load all at once.  

I did get a quote to redo the house main panel when we add the shed.  1978 Siemans 30 space panel is PACKED FULL and ugly.  Going with new 40 space Square D QO with generator interlock to do away with load side transfer switch.

I do appreciate you guys looking out for me!

Sill plates get anchored to concrete curb with epoxy anchors when walls are installed.   Builder prefabs walls on steel jig then hauls them out, stands them up, and anchors them down.  

Concrete crew did great.....30x48 and square within 1/4" on diagonals.

Thanks for comment on job site.....since it's my yard I try not to let it run wild.

Look'n good Steve.  That's gonna be an awesome building when ya get it up.  AND a sidewalk to get to it to boot.  Man oh man, you can go out in your sock feet to tuck the Cubs in at night and not get your socks all grass.

With in 1/4", NICE!  That close to perfect, who needs a blind man on a galloping horse to be checking it out for square!

Thanks.

Hanging 80,000 btu Modine Hot Dawg on natural gas.  We can see -15 F or so on the coldest days, so heat is a must.

Planning on R13-15 bats in walls and 24" of blown in for the ceiling.

Signed contract early January.   Was early in the build schedule (spring weather dependent).    Caught a break on a nice dry week to get prep work done right at Easter.   Poured concrete last week,  building should be up first week of May.   2-3 weeks from concrete to building crew.

Steve - Bet your getting excited!  My little 24x36 shop had walls made like your's but only 8 ft high.  I asked how much $$$ to make them 10 ft and a taller door but we have a building code that restricts height and they shot me a ballpark guess of 25% more for the whole building. It's tempting to put a 24x24 addition on the south end, I'd gain at least 2 ft wall height  but I'm sure that would cost WAY more than the original 24x36 did in 1995.

   Keep us posted on the progress.

Wednesday and Thursday she goes up!

Woo Hoo!

Bet you'll be like a kid in a candy store watch'n that happen. Ohhhh, a cold one in a lawn chair that afternoon is gonna be nice!  So seriously, how many times you changed your layout of the shop in your head Steve?   Standing on that cement pad, envisioning things in the shop.... that's gotta be a hard task.  Gee, I wish I had that problem here myself, wondering what I was going to do with all this new found SPACE! 😁

Actually,  not too many times.....I've had a lot of time to ponder it "wishing" over the years.

Nice!  Now that's how a shop is to be put up, nice and quick and closed in from the weather.  Looks good Steve.  Like the roof over the man door and the shape of the garage doors with the angled upper corners.

That's gonna look sweet when its done and full of Cubs.
