The price for the whole building was about 10,00$ less than a typical stick built building that we priced.

The whole building is 28' wide and 48' long.

It's made by a local company Wood-Tex http://www.woodtex.com

They make sheds, cabins, and garages.

Just wood floors, we're going to do laminate wood floors in the front half (showroom), and the back half (parts and shop)
we're still trying to figure that out.

Concrete would have added another 5,000$+ to the price of the project.

That's pretty slick. What is going to be used to separate the shop from showroom?

Chicken wire and plexiglass!

They come with the arches and we'll be walling off 2 of the 3 and putting displays in front of them.

and in the 3rd one we'll put the counter.

We'll be most likely use a wood stove for heat at some point, but we've got a couple electric
heaters for right now.

$2500 is an excellent price Art.


I have a slab with a small building on it - I wanna add on and re surface it. It'll prolly cost me $3000 to have that done but man oh mon there's nothing better than a nice slab. :)


Cale I think you'll be fine with that though. That floor will be insulated pretty well I think.

was that labor and all ? MY 30x40 cost me $4500 it had 18 inch of fill on one end though that price was the total job including plumbing in the floor

That was concrete, finish grading of the fill, wire mesh, poly and labor. I did it for cash so that kept the price down quite a bit.

We had 5000$ in just excavating, fill and gravel and that was the lowest of three bids
and another 5000$ in concrete couldn't swing that.

There's 10 dumptruck loads of fill dirt, 4 dumptruck loads of gravel and 16 hours of bulldozing,
grading and rolling gravel before the building went down.

And had to have a 130' trench dug and wiring laid to get electric to the building

The electrician is stopping by in the morning to put in the panel and run a few outlets, so we can start finishing off
the interior of the place.

Looks like the coming week or so will be a marathon of work, electric, insulation, finishing walls and ceiling.

I'm most excited about getting it finished and have the first GTG there.

Yeah and opening for business will be nice but, yeah hanging out, running saw, eating food
is what I'm really looking forward to.
