It's on a new build and will be attached. I will have to look into the piles in our area. There is a ton of rock so I am not sure if they will be required, I know they would be in Saskatoon.

Since it's attached to the house, consider easy access to the basement so you can do "clean room" shop stuff down there. For me it'd be electronics stuff, but in your case loading shells would be something that is more shop related but not something you'd want sawdust or metal shavings all over. Nice to keep it close access to the garage, moreso with electronics etc... Nothing more fun than having to grab a whole bunch of electronics gear from the house and run it all into the shop, set it up, do your work and then bring it back in the house so it doesn't all get dirty. Just an idea.

you haven't seen my reloading bench/office have you Cool (unfortunately it's now Emma's room but the reloading bench stayed Shocked ) It will have it's own dedicated space. But I know exactly what you mean.

We tried to incorporate a set of stairs to the basement but it just wasn't going to work due to the home theater. It's outside wall is next to the garage, the whole way. The whole house design revolves around the theater that's in the basement. I might be crazy but I have been collecting for ten years to have a full on theater.

this is the basses for it all. it's messed up my plumbing, costing me an arm and leg for separate/contained HVAC and special trusses to get full height under the floor. But worth it for us.

Shocked should be a good house warming party!

Haha too funny! But ya a "clean room" for working on stuff is always nice, but it's hard to give up garage space to do it. It's almost a good loft idea, so it doesn't eat up real estate for equipment, vehicles etc...

I do recall you being kind of a home theater buff. Very Happy After seeing that picture my only recommendation is no tile on the main floor of the house...I'm sure those subs would crack and probably eject all the grout in no time. Laughing

So we found a designer and a builder (husband wife team) out of alberta. He is going to do the costing on a big attached vs a small attached with a separate shop (can't get rid of the parking attached) They specialize in timber frame and icf builds.

geo thermal is out. WAY out. I could go into details but it's not going to work.

gas is $35000 ouch.

It looks like a combo of propane and electric with a mix of solar panels for preheat and maybe a little for electricity. And a combo of infloor heat with forced air.

Bumpity bump! Brad, how are things going with the shop build?

Wife and I are looking at buying a "new to us" place and it's going to need a shop as well.

Well go big or go home. Do it once, pay now or pay later. Shop will be 30x40x14 We've pushed the push. Now the fun part starts. Gas, water and elctrical.

Then the garage pad goes in!
