Default New Shed Build

Well I have been working on this for almost two years. I have done all of it myself, with the help of some family and friends. It is a 30'x50', with three 10x8 insulated doors, and the ceiling is just over 10'. I built it to park my wife's car and my truck in, and still have a bay to "play" in. It will have a bathroom with shower and radiant heat in the floors. I do automotive upholstery work on the side and do auto body work for a living. It isn't complete yet but I finally got power hooked up about 3 weeks ago, so I just now got around to doing any kind of build thread or progress thread.

Sorry for the long post, but it's basically start to finish. Well almost, still have a few things to do yet.

So here are some pics:
Here we are pouring the floor, unfortunately this is the first pic I have of the progress.

Time for the power trowel!

Floor cured, and time for some walls

Sheathing going up

Here's the supervisor, making sure we are doing it correct.

Looking good - any reason why you went with plywood on the walls and cieling instead of drywall?

Thanks, no real reason like one is better than the other. Mainly just wanted something durable and quick. Didn't really want to mud and tape seams on drywall.

Great looking shed!

We used the same boards on our walls. Looks pretty good painted.

That's exactly what I am doing. Very similar color scheme as yours, white ceiling, and light gray walls.
