I'd like to be able to back my truck/trailer in and then close the door.
What size shop are you guys in? Any recommendations on size? I'd like to store some fertilizer, pine straw, etc and also have room for all the equipment.
In looking online at buildings do you do 12 ga or 14 ga? Insulated or not (I'm in North Carolina so very little snow and winter night lows in the single digets are rare.
Any advice or help would be great since I need to get some quotes, but want to know what I really need and want. I also have to get the land rezoned to accomodate a shop.
Grab a good ole Bargin Trader at one of the local gas stations and you will see plenty metal shop builders lookin work. I also think you should build a shop a little bigger than you need, if you have the money and land. They fill up with junk real quick.
Where can I get some Talstar in the Wilson area? I just got my pesticide license and need to get ride of some fire ants.
