30x40 Workshop w/
Upstairs Apartment

Some call it a "shouse", others call it a "barndominium". We call it our dream set up!

 

We spent 3 months building a 30x40 post frame building on a tight budget and even tighter timeline. The goal was an aesthetically pleasing workshop with plenty of space for all of our toys... I mean tools.
