Default My next house build

Thought I would post up pictures on here of my shop house project. I know a few people would be interested in here. Glad to get out of the neighborhood life and actually have land. It will be slow progress so bare with me. It's 40x90 total, 40x40 shop and 40x50 house. There will be a 12x50 patio added later. 14' walls, 9' in the living quarters. 4 bed 3 bath(one bath isn't pictured, it will be in the shop) If you have any questions or recommendations, I'm all ears!

You might consider having a small area in or near the shop side plumbed for a sink/toilet. Such a thing can fit in a very small closet.

The pad,plumbing,slab,metal, and spray foam is roughly $98k. I should be able to finish the whole this for around $180k total

I have that in the works. It's not on the floorplan I posted but on the final blueprint

Id find a way to switch the master bath and room. Having your kids rooms right next to yours is not something I would prefer. Might be too late if they have poured concrete. Also Id look into putting in an island in the kitchen.

I would put a lot more beams in that slab as well. post tension slab? also as mentioned maybe flip the master suit so you dont share a wall with the other rooms. We built a metal house last year.

that room will be a office and the floorplan i posted is a rough draft, the actual blueprints have more detail like a island

How big is the lot and price per acre out there?

My wife and I have thought of doing the same thing. We figure it would be a good move for us if it's doable under 250 all in, land/lot, slab, building, build-out.

I'll certainly be watching this thread.

It's pretty pricey out here, but got a decent deal on this 5.5 acres. Per acre is around $15k+

Getting furniture in and out of the master will be a PITA with that entry layout.

If you really want a barndo, go for it. Its not much cheaper per square foot vs a traditional stick built house. Most banks wont finance them, some insurance companies wont insure them.

Couple thoughts, may be too late though..
1) floor safe. Obviously need it before the pour
2) plates in garage floor for lift ?
3) If you're going gas or propane, add a line to shop for heat and one to the patio for a grill.
4) Frame the garage high enough for a lift AND proper rafters so you can add a second floor now or later. Can never have enough storage.
5) if you're not air conditioning the shop, add some windows. Cross flow air will help.
6) floor drains in the shop.
7) make sure you have enough electrical in shop. at least 2- 220 lines, (welder and compressor)..
8) add a hose bib near the shop so you can wash cars/parts/etc there.
if I think of others I'll post.

6)never thought about that, don't know if I want oil or whatever chemicals in my septic

I walk through my master bath to enter my closet, but having to walk through the closet to the master bath is messed up.
