Kustom Steel shop build- 2nd floor

The first floor houses my metal shop, the second floor is the woodshop and office.

The exterior finishes are hardi panel for the first floor siding, metal roofing and ipe on the second floor. The long triangle shaped window running along the top of the second floor is 2 layers of twin wall polycarbonate.

The double doors on both floors are fabricated steel with polycarbonate windows.

Kustom Steel shop build- 1st floor

 This is my biggest sculpture to date. I had outgrown my poor little two car garage so decided to level it and start fresh. My wife and I spent about a year designing and drawing the new building. Aside from hiring a mason to help put in the foundation, an electrician, and friends brought in at a few crucial points- this was a solo build by my wife and me over a 2 year period.

Final post of the Kustom Steel shop build. First floor metal shop, second floor wood shop and office. I only dumped one pickup truck of junk from the whole tear down/rebuild. The old building was 90% recycled into the new one. The raw wood banding in the middle of the wall in the first photos is the old roof sheathing. Old 2 x 4’s and more of the sheathing planks were upcycled to build the stairwell wall/storage in the wood shop.
