did another thread on thoughts, but basically a 30x88 shop added beside my current one. using old pad from old building. no photos yet, but poles and headers are up. trusses go on tomorrow, will take a pic. but money stuff- teardown and haul off of old shop- 1800 labor and 850 ( estimated ) dumpster fees purchased poles, some purlins ( 2x4's that go across truss top ) , headers, concrete, $1850. but still need to purchase more 2x4's for stick framing. angle iron trusses- $900 bought welding sticks and cutter blade, misc. hardware- $300 paid 1/2 of erection labor for new building- $2250 cash out so far- $7950 expected additional expenses- builders estimate-metal and bubble insulation to roof and enclose 2 of the 3 sides ( 4th will be existing shop ) $4500 additional 2x4 lumber to frame outside walls - my estimate, 1000 other 1/2 of labor to construct- 2250 plywood sheath the front $200 materials rough oak siding for front: $500 in oak and air nails unexpected estimate- $1000 lighting $500 monior electric $500 hoped for completed cost:$18400 or 6.50 per foot or so. very good if we hit it for a 16-20 foot tall building. having the slab helps. using the other building for a wall helps too. I will have to check the final numbers on the other shop.
