Adding On To My Shop


Been working on this little addition since July, in the evenings by myself, mostly. And I believe I'd have to say, Im getting tired of working on it

The end walls have #4 rebar every 8" vertical and poured. The bond beams (which I sawed out of regular block) actually run the width of the wall with 4 pcs. of #4 rod ran horizontal, and poured to the top

Ive actually noticed my shop being damp inside more so than other shops around here. But I've not heard anyone else say anything.

Not bad, but i have noticed it. I insulated the block on the new addition and the ceiling and someone else is coming in and spraying the ceiling in the other part.

I was hoping by the time i get my heat going , all of that will be taken care of.

I figured the dampness was due to where the building was setting and with alot of shade around it.

Looks good

What pitch is that roof? Looks like a pitch for an area that doesn't get much snow load ha

It ended up being 2-12 pitch. More pitch would've been a lot better, but i would've had to go up on my other roof or tied in at the gutter board.

Either way, i didnt want to get into reworking my roof.

If you need any sheet rock ! But I wouldn't really suggest it in a garage . It don't hold up well.

Nice shop John !!! Really Nice!

Re: Adding On To My Shop


Is there a beam/brick ledge supporting the soldier course on rear open to covered open storage? If not how does that self support without being arched? Dumb carpenter question, but just curious, looks like great space, but you will fill it, always happens

It's a bond beam lintel. He described it above.
