I just did the closing on a house last week and im stoked...now I have 4 acres and a place to call my own. Im putting a 30X50 shop in the backyard on a 4" concrete slab. Is there anything I should take into consideration with the inside. The contractor that is pouring the slab & erecting the building is doing just that. I have to have the electric & sewer done by another contractor. I have so many things going on right now that my mind is blank. Does anyone have any photos of a inside layout? I was thinking of how I can make an office inside a metal fab building? As far as when the building contracor is done I will be left with a big empty space and no inside walls. Also do I dare try to keep this thing heated & air conditioned? As far as what I ' think ' I will be putting in there is a mitsubishi box truck, tractor & all of my equipment. My trailers and pickup trucks and such im leaving outside. My main goals is finding a way to make a nice area for repairing equipment & closed off office space. Anyone have a security system hooked up to their shop? Its going to be located 120 feet off the back right corner of my house. The gravel driveway is going to be running down alongside my current driveway but the entrance is hidden by heavy brush and trees. Its out in the country but there is a bunch of low lifes living around the area which makes me nervous...Should I install security system?
