    Default Boat garage shop coming along, house to follow shortly.

    After a bit of a wait thanks to Irma things are happening.

    That's great. But did it get wet in the storm... and shrink down to half-size? My advice to people is always to build twice the shop you think you can get by with... then double it <G>

    But seriously... I love how much natural light you've built into it. Enjoy!!!

    V good.

    As soon as some boundary line links get worked out, my honey and I intend to build a garage/art studio/woodshop next year. 22 x 22 each for the garage and shop with 11 x 22 art studio above.

    Columns are for the front porch and back deck/sunroom on the house. They are framing the boat garage first so construction materials can be stored inside during the house build.

    It's 20x28. 12' ceiling height. About what I've got now. This way I won't be tempted to build something bigger than the Rambler.
    And yes to the natural light. After working in a basement all these years I was ready!

    Makes perfect sense. Sure. Good plan. Don't tempt fate. Exercise self-discipline.

    Ooh, what a nice kayak building shop... Man, lashing a frame while looking out THAT shop. Oof.
    Really nice work, Brother.

    I hope you enjoy many years of wishing it were only two feet longer.

    Peace,
    Robert

    Looks great. Is the pressure treated plywood skirt a local practice/requirement, or maybe for a stone facing?

    Good question, I wouldn't put any wood that close to grade if I could help it.

    If possible, why not bump up the footprints to next multiple of 4'?

    Any wood below BFE (basic flood elevation) has to be PT. Siding will be Hardy plank.
    We raised the elevation of the house and boat garage slabs 10" based on what we saw with Irma.

    The back of the boat garage was already very close to The 60' buffer zone off the marsh. Can't do any structures in that area.
    I didn't want it any closer to the house. Will have a breezeway connecting it to the house.

    Before I'd even put a pencil to paper for the shop I'd made the decision that I won't own a boat that I can't pull out of the water and work on myself. Yards rip you off. My 23' Rambler will fit in it on the trailer, and I don't see building/owning anything bigger.
    Besides Harry Bryan's shop doesn't look any bigger and he sure does some good work in his.

    Excellent, I like the proprtions of your window openings. Somehow taller than wide seems more harmonius to me.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    Thanks. Keeping the same low country style we used on the house.
