I'm close enough (but not quite murderous).

I sure appreciate all the ideas posted, gentlemen, as the farthest I had gotten was 14' door clearance; 40' deep to handle a 34' with ease; and electric/sewer/water inside as well as on an outside pad.

I especially like the idea of running air collection/other thru slab. I already knew a compressor would go outside, as I also wanted a home backup generator to occupy a similar space (according to code, etc.) so as to keep overall footprint down.

My expectation is that electric vehicles will be along in a while, so I was thinking of fairly serious amounts of juice available, as, ideally, there would be no separate garage for cars but this one building.
A kitchenette is a must, as is a shower/tub to wash dogs, etc.

Update: Maude safely in

Moved Maude in her new home this morning for the first time. Plenty of room to work! First up reseal the top around the vents now that I do not have to worry about the almost daily thunder showers.

I don't know if you can all see it, but Maude has the biggest smile. She looks very comfortable in there. Now that she's in the photos for scale, the barn looks even bigger. Keep posting your photos and some interior layout plans.

Congratulations, she's a beauty!!

What a great garage for Maude. We have our AS in an insulated garage, but almost need to use a shoe horn to get it in. We are planning to buy some property where we can build a much larger and taller garage for our AS in about a year. Your pictures and building progress were really appreciated.

Well, Joe, I'd say you made it tall enough

Beautiful building, I'm joining the lineup of jealous AS owners.

I also built a pole barn for our Airstream the contractor erected it in 2 1/2 days. A week later I had the slab poured. It is wonderful. Our Airstream is out of the weather and the berry laden bird bombers. Big is always better when it comes to Pole barns. You did the correct thing.

Not going to happen.....To get DW's approval for this, I had to under go the dreaded alumasectomy procedure to keep these things from multiplying. However these are not 100% 100% of the time and modern science is having excellent success in reversals.

....if I angled Maude a little to right, Bambi would fit in the .....back Maude up the side ramp, Bambi in...more room to wor..

Stop it before I'm full timing in the shop!
Thanks for all the comments,
Joe

Need some more help. Please

Little update. The shop is complete and I have managed to get the important stuff in but I'm still looking for tools and things to tinker with.
I found this floor drill press today at a garage sale and bought it for $10. It works perfectly but I need to anchor it down. Weighs about 300 lbs. My questions are how is the best way to secure? I can bolt to the floor by drilling into concrete and inserting the expansion bolts. Will that be OK with 4 bolts?
2nd question, how far does it need to be from the wall or corners? I assume most things I would be drilling will be short pieces.
Any suggestions appreciated,
Regards,
Joe
