Some of the plans I have for this shop is to install two 20' long walls to make a corner area that will have all of my tools, with workbenches, and saws/welder/drill press, possibly a blast cabinet, and if I can find one, a bridgeport manual style mill like the one I use at work.

I will have a small entry door, and a 10' roll up garage door one one side, and a small entry door on another wall facing the lift. I have an abundence of ambient light inside of the barn from the wrap around corregated clear plastic panel just below the rafters, but will still install six, 6 bulb 4' long LED lights just below the rafters for night time. I have a 8'-9' ceiling planned that will house 2 of the 6 light LEDs, and at least 2 air hose drops.

This shop will get two 36" windows facing West, which will give it some light during the day, and possibly a window unit 5000 BTU air conditioner. For heat, I have a double burner "Mr. Heater", and an ambient electric hetaer that can be placed accordingly. Possibly, after retirement, I will look into a small waste oil drip burner, or a small wood stove. Insulation will be 1" rigid foam insulation in the walls, and the ceiling as well to help keep moisture down. This won't be heated unless I am out there.

I put metal up on the backside of my shop barn to cover in a older horse stall entrance awning 10x20. We use this for overflow hay bails that wouldn't fit in the conex.

I'm about 8 miles East of Findlay near Alvada.

Mine will do 3/4 but I think the bit would cost more than the rental plus the bit. Let me know if you need a hand with anything! I can't be too far down the road.

Nice place you have there but glad I don't have to rake the leaves up

Notice the free range chickens in one of the pictures, and the filled in, smoothed over, and seeded trench through the yard to the conduit going in the barn.

The last picture is looking over our creek treeline to the closest next door neighbors 1/4 mile away. The barn is kind of a mess right now, but i've been busy lately with cutting, and splitting wood.

Also been working on the Porsche

And going camping about every other weekend this Summer.

Hopefully, I can devote some more time to the Man Cave build in this cooler weather.

We have lived here for 24 years, and other than a final mowing in mid November, I haven't ever raked a leaf. The Winter winds blow really strong here....no trace of leaves by January.

I think your building is great and that is an interesting 2 post lift , I have not seen bases like that . Should be plenty stable when assembled . What year is the 944 ? I had a white/black 944S that was a great car until the timing belt snapped Good luck with the cave build and keep posting updates .

The 944 is an 1985.5, and has the burgundy "script" interior. It runs really strong with it's WILKS chip, and Weltermeister throttle cam.

The bases for those posts came with it when I bought used from a guy who bought 4 lifts from a Ford dealership, that was upgrading to 10,000# units. They are solid steel, and about 75# each.. With the Excursion, and a 99 powerstroke F250, I will need the extra stability.

Thank you all for the comments. I hope to actually run some wiring for outlets, get the lights installed, and get the lift up before snow hits. I also have the 60 gallon air compressor to get plumbed up, and run some RAPIDAIR blue lines for the air before I start building walls.

I also have a downstairs bathroom that is torn down to the studs right now, so it will take priority over the shop.

^^^^^^As you can see from the current shop pictures, I am in need of more room, and a better way of gaining access for larger items like motorcycles, tractors, and even bicycles. I have to move a car out of the garage to get even a bicycle between the cars. On my future shop, I will mounting 2 large windows, and a roll up garage door for easy access, and better air flow in the Summer.
