    I went metal and built a 100'x 125' and it cost 45K back in the 90's. I went extra skylights to limit lights, fully insulated with roof vents. Gets up over 120 degrees her and it's comfortable with a cooler. No telling what the wood one would of cost but I do know metal building don't burn up and it saved me a tom on insurance costs.

    There are several local lumber yards here in Oklahoma, that have DIY kits.

    Hope you can find some there.

    I have a 25 x 40 quonset hut type with straight sidewalls, US Steel. put it up myself. like the design and at the time it was a good buy. Secret-- get the salesman to come out, spend 2-3 hrs talking, they will often deal with "returns, unclaimed, ect" Really helps if his cell phone won't work and he has to use your landline to keep calling his boss. At the time, the original price was $8000+ and he came down to $4000. Just took a little time,

    Are YOU still here?

    I see you have started this thread have not responed to it.

    Like I asked in my FIRST post what type of workshop do you want?

    Some thing that is 8x10 feet or a 120 x400 foot building?

    What do you plan on working on in it?

    If you want some help you have to give us something to go on.
