Sooooo, new plan on the shops! After much thought of what I’ll use both shops for, and only one getting/needing A/C, here’s the new plan; small shop will be for dirty work, fabrication, and paint while the big shop will be for clean reassembly and have a mezzanine for tools/new parts underneath along with a sink, while the upstairs will be for the old parts and overflow storage of items. The big shop will have a 2-post lift as well. Exposed ceiling in the big shop (no mo’ scaffolding for me!) with cylindrical A/C duct work and exposed conduit for the electrical. Walls will be sheetrock in both with work benches along the sides. The smaller shop will have tongue and groove pine on the ceiling, much like the barn but painted. In addition to this, both shops will have 2x4 LED panels for plenty of light with the smaller shop having four mounted low for painting along the bottom edge of the car. Two big exhaust fans mounted towards the ceiling will take care of the overspray.

So that’s the plan. Time to start building it out!!! More to come....

Cheers
Dave

Looks like there might be just enough room there to do circle burnouts like the Gas Monkeys do
After all you are in Texas..

Holy freaking concrete Jetman!

That's a lot of $quare Footage. Looks fantastic though. Everyone up here uses asphalt due to the cold weather up here. I can only image doing my driveway in concrete. Ouch!

No....freakin'....way am I gonna do anything those people do! But based on the final run and straightaway, maybe a Challenge Charley Driveway Burnout is in order?

Yes, it's a crapload of concrete. Concrete comes in various measurements and when you pass the 5,000 sq. ft. area, it is referred to as a "crapload".

Mezzanine up! Stairs next!

I finished framing both shops and they're getting electric installed this week! The smaller shop, 24x36, has 18 2x2 LED panels. The two batches along on the pony wall will be used when this shop converts to the paint booth. Two 2x2 exhaust fans will handle the overspray fallout. The row down the middle will be used for the everyday work.

The big shop will have three 2x4 LED panels and I'll be installing 3 windows for natural light. Two ceiling fans (two bladed Hartzell propeller looking) will be keeping air moving in that one, along with central AC and heat. This is the reassembly shop and done car shop. Well, that is, if I ever keep any DONE cars!

Cheers
Dave

Nice, congrats. Make certain to use explosion proof exhaust fans.
