good luck and congratulations!. :twothumbsup:

it sounds big now, but once you get everything in it it will be way too small.   :pat:

As my dear old Dad always says " you can never have to many sheds "

 

Well done and Im sure you will enjoy it and fill it up plenty quick enough

Excellent!  Nothing better than a indoor spot for working on projects.

Gee, I'm glad to know it's not only me! My barn on L.I. was 60 x 45  and was pretty full and not too organized. Moved everything to Virginia and organized alot as it was loaded in containers. Now my shop is 100 x 100 and not only dis organized but too small. I've got 5 full containers I brought down from Maine. I'm close to selling every truck, all the parts and tools.

Being in Montana I would expect a shop in winter is pretty much a necessity. Even if no heat but out of the wind will probably make a big difference. Good luck with the project.

It is a necessity if you’re going to to any vehicle repairs yourself and having a place to tinker can help our long winters pass by as well. This past February we had a nasty cold snap and I needed to changed my plugs, cap and rotor, points and condenser outside while it was -9. It was doable but touching metal that is that cold is real hard on fingers.

Congrats! Been looking for a building myself too, finding the right thing is always a challenge. NY winters were bad enough to work in, you'll get half the year back for time to work on projects 😛

I can't post the photo for some reason but my shop in Va is made up from 14 forty foot hi cube containers with ladder steel trusses. The containers are set up as separate parts and work areas and make all storage and work areas fire proof.

Probably looks something like this. This outfit was building mega loads to go up to the tar sands in Montana. Built the shop out of containers after the steel building got blown down twice midway through construction.

I keep trying to get my parents to build an equipment shed/shop out of containers for the farm. I guess as long as I'm the one working under the machinery in snow and mud, it won't get done :)

Lol I think that falls under the category of "if you want it, you build it."

double roof over the containers, that one above it easy 5 or 6 stories.  Can't seem to be able to post any photos on BMT today.

That building was built back in 1963 and that’s the original floor.Used to bring the big tractors(d8-d9’s)in on rubber mats.
