    Nice !

    Mike, you may want to ask if they install cables and turnbuckles to help with flex. We did a couple of those type buildings where they did not. When the sun got high, the building expanded to the point the doors wouldn't work properly. We had an engineer come in and they recommended several places to put cables in an (X) pattern. This did help.. Coarse this building had a dozen or so doors and walls to the lid. If you only have a couple doors, or your walls don't go all the way up, you may be able disregard that useless info. LOL.

    I see the cables are in there Mike, but then you knew that. LOL On the building we did, it was taller and the steel a lot heavier, so I think the yo-yo's figured it was so beefy it would never move.. Wrong!


    You are going to have one badazz shop. Wish it was sitting on my property.

    Steel, sweet!! You'll be able to hang just about anything from that. What kind of insulation are you going to use, and what 'R' value?
