    Our plant has AC and it make these heat waves a non issue. I really like not having surface rust on everything, especially since we work with stainless primarily.
    I used to live there, your 'heat waves' are like 2 weeks out of the year, a little different than down south when AC runs pretty much all year long. Might need a bigger unit to keep up in TX.

    On the plus side, I don't have a gas bill in the winter!

    Correct, just materials, no assembly.

    Open cell throughout. Yes, against the bare tin roof.

    But I could see that it would be highly worthwhile to doo in your shop if you were slow and had time to move everything out for a day or so.


    Should be quite able to stay comfy in this box!
    A lot easier than if you went with the 40x100!


    Also - highly interesting that you live in an area that has a HOA and yet you have trees and big yards and room to even consider puting a 40 x 100 building!
    Not where I envision a HOA being...
    ???

    It’s an acreage community. I’m on 7.5 acres. Neighbor is on 23. But strict HOA.

    I just have to chuckle that I have easily 10 times the equipment in a building almost exactly 1/4 the size!

    I moved from a 1500 sq ft rented space to a 16x18 2 car garage before building my current shop almost 5 years later. You’ve got a heck of a start to a shop!

    Home Owners Association.

    Usually run by old fogies with a taste for power and have nothing better to do than cruise the neighborhood looking for petty violations to cite.

    On the plus side, they're the guys who keep Bubba from rebuilding his truck motor in the street next to all the pretty houses, But OTOH, they are also the ones to tell you your car has been parked in your own driveway for too long and your grass has too many weeds. Sometimes they can be low key about stuff, but ours is a pain for $400 a year.

    Really like your shop! You'll smile and thank yourself a million times for the money spent now on spray foam insulation. Kudos for the nice plywood wall covering too! Both those things are like saving up until you can buy the best of tools instead of settling for less.

    "old fogies with a taste for power and have nothing better to do than cruise the neighborhood looking for petty violations to cite."

    Ha! We have one of those on this PM site and he likes to give the new 'neighbors' a warm welcome.

    Never have owned a home in a neighborhood with a HOA, for that reason!

    I will be as soon as we can afford to buy property and build.

    Hopefully I can continue to stay under the radar.
