    A Building Appears

    My patience is tested by the 2-pics-at-a-time feature so this will be brief.

    Tuff Shed, stick-built pre-fab panels with the balance site-built. 30 x 40 x 10, residential door facing the house so that (planned) area looks nice, double doors on one end where the vehicle access is (lumber in, projects out), and a 4' door on the rear wall that will act as DC lean-to access and the exhaust for my spray area.

    Foam-board spray booth and fan/filter frame stored.

    They do have it down to somewhat of a science. This is one day's work.

    All walls and all trusses in place.

    Yea, these things can got up pretty quickly because everything is planned out with factory assembled efficiency. Your picture actually answers one question I had...the type of trusses. Can I assume you used the "custom build" option for your building? The online configurator doesn't seem to support the taller wall option. I like that they use the LP products for the exterior. Good stuff.

    Dang! Thatís going to be sweet spot! I imagine itíll make you smile every time you walk in the door.

    I like your idea for the spray set up. Itíll be cool to see how you set everything up.

    Got the final sign-off on the electrical inspection.

    Just a couple of nuisance items on the building to go.

    A little advice from an old retired electrician. Run a empty conduit up into the attic for future access.

    Well said Von. Extras are the rule of the day. Before prices went wild I was going to run some sort of flexible conduit to various possible future locations. As it turned out the liquid-tite and other 'innerduct' type products cost nearly what the wire does so I am running additions cables with service loops to various locations. I also plan for several on-demand outlet locations to be built so that they can become dedicated 120v or 240v connection points with little fuss. The best laid plans . . .

    Glenn, I was curious as to what kind of sheathing is under the exterior siding? Some type of insulation board?
