Work Shop...Design Lab

For the past 6 months or more I have worked on the simple design of my work shop. I kept simplifying and complicating the design. I knew i wanted to pour a cement slab after I dug out the sloped terrain.

I also knew i wanted to install a radiantly heated floor with PEX tubing.

I designed a very simple roof line using TJI engineered beams and a cool cantilevered floating corner. Here is the first wall going up. All of the verticals in the stud walls are reclaimed 2x6's. They were saved from the ceiling of an old house in town. I had enough to frame all entire wall system.
