So I posted in another thread that I bought a 2+ acre chunk of land. This land borders my current house and includes two buildings. One of which is this 30x30 shop. It needs a lot of work inside and out but I'll get it there. The first pic is a little over a year ago when this journey of buying it started. Since then I have done lots of tree trimming around it. Need to get some roof leaks fixed first asap and will then work on cleaning up and fixing things on the inside. Then not sure, I could do anything in here.

Nice potential. Fix the roof before you get too much rot.

Unfortunately lots of rot already. The roof didn't leak a year and a half ago. But I had to watch as it kept getting worse and I couldn't do anything. You can see trees did some damage and it's leaking with lots of rot around the chimney. But I got the trees down and it can now breath and dry out a bit.

You might be able to simply cover the existing roof in steel, providing there is enough rot-free decking to let the fastners bite. material for a 30x30 roof would cost less than 1K. 

 

Steel is lighter than shingles, so as long as you only have one existing layer of comp AND you are not sagging it might be your best bet.

Yeah, it's not as bad as it looks actually. I don't think it was ever painted or sealed. But yeah there is some rot and it will be addressed at some point.

I had thought about steel. But I do have some rotted decking, mainly just around the chimney and one other spot. I have a buddy in the roofing/siding business and he plans on coming over to take a look and give me a few options. Honestly right now I might just do what I need to do to stop the leaks and address it in the spring. New kitchen, some foundation work, baby and just buying the land kinda has me tapped.

Anyone know why this fan would be mounted in the ceiling? I'm guessing it is blowing down into the shop? Not sure because he had the breaker pulled out for it so it may not work. Not sure why he would pull the breaker out of the panel. Pull hot air out of the attic into the shop during cooler weather?

The attic fan I had in the hall looked like that.  It draws air from inside and blows it through a vent in the roof.  I used it when it's cool enough outside and it seriously moved air.  It'll take your hat off when walking under it.  If there isn't a vent on the roof, I don't know then.  I had mine removed because it wasn't the most efficient at keeping heat from the attic from entering the house in the summer.  It was nice during the right time of year, though.

I guess there is some vents at the end of the building in the peak. You can see it in the first pic.

Looks like the damper for the attic exhaust fan in the house I'm staying in.

No, not sure why they took it out. When the guy died his widow just had it cleaned out.

Nah, this is going to be for car/woodworking stuff. I already have a brewery built and yes there is a thread about it.
