I looked through the thread but may have missed... curious if the horizontal type wall framing was a code requirement or an option... and if so what influenced your decision?

Framing is NOT my strong point so thanks for your indulgence.


Itís not structural in a post frame building. The large treated posts are tied together at the top with LVLís. Thatís what is structural. The horizontal framing is just the easiest way to get something to attach the interior metal to. Almost like heavy duty firring strip.

In a traditional stick built house, the vertical studs hold the weight of the joists and rafters/trusses above.

Makes sense thanks

Yeah I saw that, I thought it was metal but was not sure. That would be easier than drywall for sure. I'm guessing cheaper/less labor as well?

Just nicer. Paid a small fortune for the guy to hang it. No need to finish/primer/paint it though. Just nice bright white metal that should never need any attention

Awesome job and well thought out. And your cost per sq ft is impressive. Got room for guest quarters and a bike?

Re:Building my shop 1 Month ago  
Well, after fighting gas pressure issues for the last 3 weeks, all is well and the heat is on. Gas company had issues on their end of things and it took them 6 trips out here to figure out and fix the problem. This has been a frustrating time for sure but it appears to be resolved.

Let me just say, if youíve never experienced radiant floor heat, you have no idea what youíre missing. Itís been pretty cold here lately. A spray foamed building with floor heat is like stepping into a different world. 70įF is way too hot. Even for just sitting around. 65į is almost too warm if youíre working on anything. No cold feet issues like most heated garages (with a unit heater or whatever). Water off the vehicles evaporates pretty fast because the slab is warm. Itís probably even worth all the insane time and money I have into it

Working on getting the bathroom finished next. Itís coming together slowly but surely.
