Workshop built to match main house.
I decided to build that workshop that I always wanted. My wife said I could build it if it matched our house. It is 16' by 20' with a driveunder/walk out basement. It is now dried in. I still have to wire and insulate. I only hired help when I could not physically do the work myself, like pouring the walls, roofing, etc. Thanks to the many responders who helped me during this project. Here are the pictures:
This is the main house that I had to match.  I had no professional plans for the workshop.
