Woodworking Newbie

Hi everyone,

I'm a retired newbie to wood working. I've been buying tools on Craigslist(which makes me Committed) in anticipation of building a shop. I have plans to attach a shop to the house but because of the market right now, the sub's are very busy. I may have to put this off for a spell until the market turns down as anticipated in the near future and sub's become available. The shop I want is 24' x 26'. I just got a staggering bid of 110K...........WHAT -- are you kidding me!!!
Right now I'm rebuilding a Jet 6" planner I bought for 100.00. New bearings, remove rust and repaint.
Glad to be a part of the WWT and hope to see all your wonderful shop ideas.

Nice. A $110K woodworking shop. I look forward to seeing it.

Many of my 2nd hand tools came from Craigslist as well.

Welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the site, Butler.
If the shop is attached to the house, it might come under different regulations that require "living space" compliance. I don't know if that's why it would cost so much, but that's my guess.
I'm looking at a concrete foundation and steel building built to hurricane standards here, in Florida ... all for less than $20,000.00. Another couple of thousand to wire and plumb it (if I decide to plumb it).
WAY less than 100K !!!

You can bet that shop will never be built for that price. Unfortunately, I don't have the space to build a standalone.

I'm here in Portland OR and the setback is 15 feet in the back yard and 5 feet on the side yard. Stemwall with concrete floor and radiant heating. I plan on putting channels in the floor so I can run ductwork. The channels will allow me to move equipment around. If I built a stand alone, that would reduce the shop size and leave a very small walkway between house and shop. Since there are few concrete companies now, they can pretty well ask what ever the market will bare. I have another contractor looking at the plans so we'll see what he comes up with. In the mean time I'm working out of a Harbor Freight temporary tarp shed 10x15.

Thank you guys for welcoming me to the forum, appreciate.
Steve
