I keep the ac set to around 80. It helps to keep the humidity under control in the motorhome and makes it tolerable if we need to do work inside while in the shop. I have not bothered with the bucket as the amount of water is not that great.

I keep the roof vents open and normally the bedroom window also. It was 92 in the MH when I went inside a few days ago. If I we planning to be doing something inside I would turn on the ac first thing in the morning, and then do the work when I got around to it. I don't see any need to spend money cooling or heating that is not absolutely necessary. The only time I use heat in the winter is if we have below freezing temps forecast.

NO heat, NO AC. We live in a temperate climate so it does not get that hot in the summer. Winter we are snow birding. If it gets warm inside in the summer I open the north facing door for an hour or two and it is reasonable.

I have been reading this thread for a year or two. Finally got our permit to build ours. Our town makes it difficult and expensive with all kinds of cosmetic requirements. Ours is also on a slope making it more expensive. Anyway, biting the bullet. Clearing starts tomorrow. Best two tips I have taken away from the thread is put in a wider door (ours will be 14 X 18) and side lighting (decided not to install that but will definitely buy one of those contractor lights on a tripod to light side work when needed.

Well, no pictures as I can't figure out how to put them here. But nothing fancy on my part 28' x 48' x 14' high stick built with 6/12 pitch truss roof. Lots of windows, 2 walk doors, one out side, one in back. 3 overhead insulated steel doors, two in front, 12x13 high, 10x10 high and a 9x7 high out the back.

I subcontracted the site work, drive, excavation, foundation work, slab, framing and roofing. I did siding, painting/staining, installed walk doors/windows, ran 100 amp 240v electric from house panel and wired garage. Cost me total for everything around $34k in 2005. Drew up plans myself and did permitting to. Included around $2.5k for engineering/permitting. Probably to do now would be around 30% or so more.

My advise, build as big as you can. You will find a way to use it.

Looks great! Hope the seeding works. I like your set up - do you mind sharing the dimensions?

The enclosed portion is 30x50x16 with a 20x14 door and a walk door. The side area is 12x50. It is a Morton Building.

We finally got electric service ran about a month ago. It is now lit up and powers the RV without the extension cord through the door.
