    My wife knows better than to say anyting like that.....A buddy of mine has a wife that once said something similar and now he has what his circle of friends call the "garage Mahal". Needless to say it is BIG and very nice, but the problem is that the rest of us haveives that have learned from that and all now know better than to open their mouths and let ANYTHING out that sounds like maybe we should "build a shop" or even a larger garage.......

    Never pick a fight with an old guy. Old guys are too smart to fight and get hurt. They'll just kill you and get it over with.

            That is a very nice shop! But not an ounce of insulation? Is it going to sweat inside?

                Great Shop! and Great Wife!
                And no matter what you think, it's already too small. I built mine last year 30'x40' and already thinking how can I add on?

                Good job. I know you will enjoy it.

                And you should be able to sell that dragon for enough $ for a good plasma cutter!

                        Sorry, I did not see you already have a plasma cutter. That's the same one I have and it is a good one.

                        So, I guess you should keep the dragon!

In addition in my shop things have been known to hit the walls,occasionally the ceiling and rarely the floor(when I can find it) which might damage the conduit. All in all though a really nice shop and a talented and understanding wife. Who could ask for more.

                              The OP has to be somewhere very south... as I doubt that even is a 10# building (PSF roof load). There's no way you'd get away with that light of a building here in Maine...

                              as far as the conduit goes... I probably would have run at least an 1.5" conduit from the panel up to a 4x4 raceway about 7' or so AFF.... then you've got the ultimate in flexibility if your power needs change.

                              To the OP... I think you're going to be buying insulation sooner than you think. That place will turn into an unbearable oven.... quick; and if the temp drops below the dewpoint.... water will condense and drip inside...
