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

Wow.. this is turning out to be the slowest build ever.

While it's going to be a great shop, I'm disappointed in how long it's taken me to get this far.

Anyway, shop doors got installed and...

I hear you.. now, thinking about it, I'd have to check with the insurance company if they have any rules.

Re: Quote to Sheetrock Ceiling in Garage

Then my math must be right... my shop being 40 deep/30 wide would cost over $1600 to do in soffit materials..

Re: Quote to Sheetrock Ceiling in Garage

PC06,

I did the math once and must have gotten it wrong. Maybe you can save me a trip ?
On the HD website, the cost is $17.95 and says it's a 16" by 10' piece.. 4 panel?
So is it $18 per 16"...

Re: Steel roof w/2 pitch + snow belt = problems?

Great advice wizard. Will be sure to use that info.

Re: Steel roof w/2 pitch + snow belt = problems?

DT,
these were my original plan. But I'm really worried about the weight. Especially where the 2 different roofs will join.

This may be an option for the back side of the garage, where I'll...

Thanks guys.. you're completely right and I just needed to hear it.
