30 X 50 Shop Build

Thanks to all of my fellow camaro lovers who also have a penchant for garages/shops and or storage buildings, I submit to you my current shop build progress.

This shop started out to be a 30 X 50 Metal Shop. A customer of mine could not pay his bill but was in the Steel Building business so we decided to swap out. Unfortunately for me, I poured the footings before getting my permit and then the local AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction) would not allow me to put up a metal building. Oops! I should have checked fisrt. My bad.

Soooooo, after some long deliberations and kicking and screaming, I decided to make lemonade out of the lemons. Now it is going to be a 30 X 50 with a full second story and a trax type hoist system.

I neglected to take pictures of the footings but my son may have and I will try to dig those up later.

Enjoy!

Tommy V.
Blast from the Past!

30 X 50 Garage

You can see in the pictures with my truck in the garage the steel beams that go from the front to the back of the building. These steel beams are 14 inches tall, 30 feet long and weigh approximately 1200lbs. each. I decided to use these for both strength and the trax hoist system.

Cool

Tommy V,

Your garage/shop is looking awesome. I built my 24 x 32 garage about two years ago and have a few more items to complete on it. I wanted mine to be a little bigger, but land boundaries kept me from making it larger.

Please keeping posting your progress.

Looks very nice. Looks like exactly what I need on my property. You could put a good many vehicles in your space with wheel dollies and such. I'm still using the shop on my fathers property. We need more space. But we make the most of what we have. Don't know when/if expansion may take place over there. We really need a five bay setup at least. We'll either expand over there, or I'll start from scratch on my property and should be able to put up someting nice with plenty of adequate space for what we want to do. I'll be facing the same code issues by living in the city. We have to have a permit simply for building a wooden privacy fence. I'm sure a much larger and more permanent structure will be even more of a treat to have to deal with. Keep us posted on the progrress. Looks great!

30 X 50 shop

Looking down my driveway. You will notice that I can turn left or right into either of 6 bays.

Now, I only need Z's for each bay. That or T/A's.

More views looking down my driveway.

We ordered all of the materials to get the second story on last week. Patiently waiting for the space joists. Checked on them today and they are in a weather delay.

Dang Snow!




One on my toys pulled in. Turbo charged Miata.

Floor Drains.

I have a floor drain embedded in the concrete in all three bays. You cannot tell it by looking but each bay is sloped slightly to the center drain. These are four inch drains that are plumbed out the back.

A few more views showing the Steel beams for the hoist system and the second floor.




Beam shots. That is blast from the past sitting under the cover in the back ground.


Blast from the Past just in case you guys have missed it in other posts.

Great foresight on the drains. I wish I had done that when I had mine built...

Nice Z also!!!

Thanks David,

I had looked at your pictures earlier. Are you getting any resolution to your shop problems or are you having to seek legal counsel? I hope you haven't paid the final on it.

Pisses me off when business man do not do what they are supposed to do.

Tommy V.
