Then start checking your local bargain papers. You can find
companies willing to sell you kits, erect on your site, with payment
plans, etc. Almost any size you want, or are willing to pay for.
Or, check on local guys moonlighting. My shop is only 8X12, for
$875. That's what I could afford. Up in one Sat morning, by the guy
that sold/made it. He also makes (prefabs), delivers, and sets up,
smaller, or up to two car garage size, at least, priced accordingly.
Probably cost more if he went out of state. The price was cheaper than
the kits I found, and I didn't have to do any of the work. Yes, I could
have paid less for materials, and done it myself. However, I would have
had to had the materials delivered, it would have been a major pain (no
pun intended) for me to construct, considering my joints it would also
have been painful, and would have probably taken me a couple of weeks.
One financing option is a signature loan from your bank, for $5,000
or less. Interest rates are a LOT less than credit card, pay off in 2
years, and they can take payments direct from your checking - so one
less bill to worry about.
Besides, the campers I've seen are OK on the outside, only trashed
on the inside. But, your shop, your money, your choice.
But, if you've got access to a bunch of logs, doesn't matter if
they're split or not, cut them in about 1' lengths, and make a cordwood
shop building (yep, that's the terminology). Not hard, looks good,
cheap. Or, a batch of scraw bales, for a straw straw shop (yup, i'ts a
legiitimate type of building practice), check it out. You can make them
look as good as you want 2X4 cutoffs. Etc. There's more ways, but I'm
gonna make me a cup of something hot to drink.
The Good are Innocent so they invented Justice. The Evil are Guilty so
they invented Mercy.
