Not sure where to put this. Anyway, Ill retire in a couple years so I decided to convert a 12x24 storage building into a man cave.

Ill close in a 10x12 area for reloading. It will be insulated, drywall and Ill install a HVAC system with dehumidification.

Note: It is built (Hurricane roof joist ties and anchored down) to withstand 150 MPH winds.

The other area 12 x 14 will be for my saws, drill presses, lathe, etc. Im going to build a deck with a roof so I can cast boolits on it.

Going to install a alarm system with IR cameras to protect my stuff.

I just ordered my building materials, 100 amp electrical panel, wiring, etc.

It will be slow going as I work in construction 10-12 hours a day, but Im excited and will post with pics on my progress.

Sounds great. A nice thing about TX, little need to move once retired, for many.

When you put in the wiring/100 amp panel run a 220v circuit in the event you want a welder or big air compressor.
I'm guessing you won't need heat.
It's all good all the time

I'm insulating and sheet rocking mine right now. The previous owner walled off the back of the rv garage and put in a second floor. I made the second floor into a sewing room for me and the wife with a nice lay out table in the center and we each have a side for our sewing machines. The previous owner left it an open loft so I walled it off. The lower level is my shop and reloading room. Next is to breech the wall between the rv garage and the house and extend the heat and ac into the sewing room with a vent down into the shop. I can still get the rv and 6x10 cargo trailer in the garage.
After the first shot the rest are just noise.

Make mine a Minaska.
