As farm machinery gets larger and more expensive, farmers need to expand their farm shops. Some want to remodel, while others want to build new.
Maybe you are building a shop because you have always wanted one and decided now is the best time. Most farmers service their equipment themselves. It pays to have a decent place to work.
Every Job Has Its Place
The ideal shop has various areas for different tasks. One corner is for welding, another is where tool cabinets reside.
Consider having a separate space or room to clean equipment. Will your shop have a table somewhere to take breaks or eat lunch? Download our freemium: Efficient Farm Shop Tips.
Save on Heat and Energy in Your Farm Shop
Many prefer in-floor heat, but it may not be for everyone. The size of the shop heating system depends on the size of the shop, how often it is used and how often the large doors will be opened or closed.

1. Decide which door size fits your needs
Consider how you want to handle your machinery. Some farmers like to bring in the equipment and then unfold it, while others want a door that's wide enough to just drive in, unfolded. Don't forget about the height of the door as well.
2. Provide adequate electrical capacity
Providing adequate electrical capacity for both current use and future growth is important from both a functional and safety perspective.
3. Secure your shop from intruders
