    Yea, mine is definitely not gonna be built like that. These are examples my salesman provided. $13700 delivered and installed. Not quite the cold formed steel beams that whirlwind builds with.

    Kinda looks like a greenhouse frame with metal screwed to it.

    It does doesn’t it. The sheet metal is stressed skin that holds it all together just the same as a semi-monocoque aircraft (all sheet metal aircraft). Like I said well see how well it holds up. It def couldn’t handle much abuse.

    Should look like this when it’s done.

    Understand the excitement. What size is it and does that price include the concrete?

    Construction starts tomorrow. The size is 40wide x 30deep and 12ft walls. Should have a clearance of 13.5ft inside which should allow a lift to lift a 4x4 6ft in the air and have a little room to spare. 3x 10ft rollup doors on the broadside, 1 walk-in door, and two 3ft windows. $13700 includes all of this.

    The concrete was $7150 for 6” thick 4000psi slab with 12” thick perimeter. I paid it separately.

    I do plan on a lift sometime next year. Shopping used. If anyone finds or knows of a good used lift please let me know.

    Also been researching like crazy electrical service installation. Just submitted my dig request to bury the new service line from the house to the shop (80ft run). Initial indications are that there is no obstructions. But gotta wait a couple more days. Then I may rent to ditch witch or try to shovel dig 18” ditch to bury the UF 100amp service cable.
    The sub panel and branch circuits seem straight forward and easy. It was how to tie into the 200amp main that confused me a bit. But seems simple now.

    Just need to go buy all the stuff and get to work!

    Oh yea and also 9 gallons of epoxy for the floor. Good news here is there is very little prep for fresh concrete

    Which also means you don't know how it's been treated. I bought one from Greg Smith and have been happy to date.

    Pretty sure it's this one: https://www.gregsmithequipment.com/Atlas-9KOHX

    We took a morning and picked it up in Austin rather than have it shipped.

    We've had all the cars, extended cab 1/2 ton, AWD Tahoe Denali, etc. on it.
