Socket Systems


Has anyone heard of this:

http://www.socketsys.com/

I'm planning to build a 24'x36' workshop with a wood floor/crawlspace. Any feedback on this product would be appreciated.

I don't see that hardware helping making anything that much easier. To me it looks like a stick framed garage with posts. Then a couple pieces of hardware. If you don't want to use trusses then run your own roof rafters but don't let that website change your mind. Do you want room in your attic??? Then rafter the ceiling, add floor joists that can span, add a supporting wall in lower part. I take it you don't want a concrete slab??? Here a slab would run you 5500.00, but you wouldn't have to run floor joists and subfloor which is half the cost of the concrete, but of course your floor won't be insulated...

Looks like they are selling a system and step by step instructions for a diy'er. I believe I could sell you a pile of lumber and step by step instructions and save you alot of dough and have equal or better. Mine could be done without equiptment. <P>

I've seen many times where people think they are saving money and in the end it costs more. Of course if you just love to build things and don't have tons of experience the equation changes.HS.
