After looking for a different place or buying land and building, we decided to just build the shop I wanted(and the kitchen my wife wanted). We like our neighborhood, live close to schools, 10 minutes from work etc. so moving was not real appealing anyways.
Got started this week on the demo of a 3 car garage to make space for about a 1850sf garage with 14.5' ceilings. it will have a 12ft x 13ft tall door so we can pull the gooseneck in with a RZR stacked on the gooseneck. the one bay will be long enough were I won't even need to unhook. Doors will be R17 with wood accents and with blue tooth openers and wall hugger tracks. First phase will be insulated with drywall, AC, 220V at the front and back for the welder, 220V in attic for the compressor, all LED lighting. Plumbed for a bathroom and outdoor shower. Slab will be 6-8" thick were we plan to put in a two post lift (later). We beefed up the rafters so we can finish out about 500-600sf in the attic (that will happen next year when it cools off enough again to work in the attic - gotta love SE Houston heat/humidity! -salvaged a lot of the lumber from the existing garage to make that happen). Contractor will put up the shell with all electrical/plumbing and then I will insulate, drywall and build a staircase into the attic. I will also plumb for air drops. After the city approved it in less than a week, it took 6 months to get the HOA to approve it!

I am not 100% on where things will be located so it will be 6' x 6'. I do like the idea of 1ft, not sure if he can get his mini excavator back in there at this point. he's already trenched that area for the concrete beams. were planned to go 8inch.

Me and my brother put the foam down then taped all seams and put vapor barrier down then wire mesh and then the pex, there’s a **** ton of zip ties to put on and cut, it sucked but hopefully will pay off this winter

Shop looks great and really digging the heated floors.

We were fixing to get started on a 24 x24 pad with a 18x24 garage and 6' porch off the side with a fireplace and outdoor kitchen but stuff may be changing at work and we don't want to spend any money on the house in case we get a chance to move. Y'all fools got big fancy stuff and I am trying to make me, my wife, the homeowners association and my wallet happy so I will rock out with my little 18X24. Similar to this but with a garage door on the front and a chimney on the porch.

Man, that's exactly what I'm wanting at the house. Any more progress?
Got the walls insulated this weekend, guy is coming to spray foam ceiling this week, and hopefully get garage doors on this week also. Then I will start pulling wire

Sweet. That looks complex. I was just going to put in a manifold, fed by a pump/heater.
I bought that as a panel as a pre plumbed system then added the electric boiler, it wasn’t cheap but it was smooth clean and was tested, I was gonna go with a single pump and a hot water heater but after talking to friends who have done it, they said it wasn’t worth it, said you will burn up a hot water heater in 1-2 years and one guy had it running off a outside wood boiler and said it ate a lot of wood, I’m not sure what this is gonna run me a month electric wise, I live in Ohio so if ur from the south you can probably get by with a simpler system. There’s people up here who heat their whole house this way

Looks like a tankless hot water heater, but with multiple lines instead of just 1 in and 1 out. Am I missing something....
