I read an interesting article, in order to get steel production back into America the govt proposed insane tax breaks, some of or mostly one of the major steel importers said nah **** you so instead they put a massive import tax on steel so by the time you plan your shop steel prices will be out of your budget

Ive already got a 20x50 "shop", but its got a lean-to roof. What Id like to do is replace that with trusses and a gable roof, but boy -- would it be a job.
Pros: Would give me 12' ceilings, the ability to add windows up high the length of the south side of the shop for extra light, and be able to install a lift.
Cons: Cost. Time to do it.

Unless you can wait until the market takes a major dive the prices will continue to rise with the current market. I don't see that happening with Trump in the office. In other words if you need it now or maybe the next 7 years you better find a way now or its only going to cost more.

I've been looking/wanting a 60*80 with at least 1 14' tall doors at each end.. on a 20' wide pull through bay.. allow me to get 13'6 vehicle in and out.. my truck/trailer is ~65-67' long..

40*60 would cover most...

Btw a CCLB and a 40GN trailer(~48-50' oal) is usually around 65' bumper to bumper..

Or shop the right place's a 60x90 can be had for around 40k. Not sure why you think trump has done anything to effect that. But people alway's seem to find an excuse.

Metal for sure, mine is 3000 square feet with 20' ceiling and I need twice as much. Go 16' doors or you will regret it...

No metal cost is without a doubt on the rise and it's rising insanely fast, weather Trump did something directly or not it's a fact we can't ignore. The cost on some metal has already doubled

What are you talking about? Who's making excuses? Trump became President and since then the market has gone full steam a head. There is so much demand for steel the the price is going to continue to rise.

I agree here. For you in the boat world it probably makes a difference but otherwise 14 is more than most anyone will ever use.

RV with any antennas will need 16. I have to have 16 for boats yes but rv is just as important and when building such a big shop you need to think resale.

I do have to agree with that even though I may come across a heavy equipment such as an excavator.

Im not in a super rush for building my shop, still got plenty of work to clear in my backyard. I've decided a 40x60 may be big enough for my stuff and to work in unless I see the inside of it to get a better idea. I'll be doing it one thing at a time, starting with a concrete slab then work my way up. Who knows, maybe the steel prices will drop, it's always a rollercoaster for steel prices.
