Re: Starting over... again. 30x40 shop build project = "Sutton Shop"

You sir, are brilliant!
Thank you!! :D

I believe that the best thing to do: because of our temperatures, I'm doing the 4' below grade for frost. Then, 2' above grade with the 8' wall suggested...

First, for 28k, it was the framing portion on the concrete wall/standard truss/2 12' doors/2 windows/man door/steel roof (standard shed style).
