Willy, I have had some exposure to engineered lumber, but mostly just working around it.
I have found that I can use them to replace the dimensional lumber (2 X 12's) I was planning on using for the roof rafters. If the prices are competitive with dimensional lumber, I will be using them for all my new floor framing. I want to use 14" wooden I-beam joists as roof rafters so I can super-insulate it, R-38 in between the rafters and 1-1/2" (R-7.5) foam board under the rafters. I have decided to use steel siding on the ceiling, instead of dry wall or plywood, the steel makes more sense then either of them as I can order it cut to the length I need to cover the ceiling. Another thing about the steel siding is it is a heck of a lot lighter either of them.
I should know the prices tomorrow.

The pipe for the columns in the work bay area arrived today.
Image
This pipe had been in a water well for a city in my area.
There are four pieces but I will only need three of them for the work bay area. I am going to make bollards to protect the walls between the doors with the extra section and the two others I have here.

The reason the pipe was changed out.
I will have to make top and bottom plates for the columns.

Well work on the shop is starting again.
The first thing to do is replace the existing shingle roof with steel. I have most of the materials figured out.
The new roof is a temporary fix until I have the new shop ready to be built. Once the new roof is on, I will start on the inside of the shop so I can move the machine tools into the front of the shop.

Well, I managed to get the area on the south side of the shop cleaned up. The major item in there was the IH R190 dump truck. It had three flat tires and the other three were low. The first thing I did was move my gantry that had been a swing that my dad built when I was a little kid. I moved a couple of trailers, than moved the gantry over to where one of the trailers had been. I was using my neighbors JD 5075 tractor with the rock bucket on the loader frame. So I could not use it to push the truck. But I did pull the truck out it's tire ruts. The final move of the truck had to wait until we got a few dry days. One thing that had to be done was to air up the tires. To make it easier I would jack up the tire and then inflate the tire. Fronts, 60psi. Rears, 45psi. Then I had to wait for a few days as it rained off and on.
Yesterday was the first day that the weather cooperated and I could move the truck.
I used my Super-H to push it back out of where it had set for a few years. Then I pushed it around behind the house and back around the southside of the shop to it's new parking spot.
Now I can start stripping the roof this week.

Since, I last posted in this thread. :D
All the steel roofing panels for the roof are here on site. I still need, 4 pieces of residential rake, 5ea. inside closures, 5ea. outside closures, the 2 X 4 X 16' (around 16 of them), a few 2 X 6's, a few 2 X 8's and about 350 #10 × 3-1/8" RSS screws, and the stitch screws.
I have a roll of 6mil net reinforced visiqueen that I will use to cover the roof while I am stripping it. Once the roof is down to the sheathing on both sides, I will decide how the purlins will be installed. Whether on top of the existing sheathing or strip it down to the rafters, will be decided once the condition of the sheathing is known.
The RSS screws (Rugged Structural Screw) were "suggested" to replace the 3-1/8" decking screws by a couple of buddies, I do welding and machine work for. One is an Architect and the other a Structural Engineer, they were both worried about pull out (or through) from wind loading. Since the roof replacement is hopefully a temporary fix, I want to build a brand new shop in a year or two. The demo of this shop will be a lot easier using screws instead of 3-1/2" nails on the purlins.

Had a racoon try to take up residence in the attic above the shop, I do not know how long he has been in there but , I fixed the gap above the door to prevent it from accessing the attic anymore.
I used a couple drops from some corrugated steel roofing or siding panels to close the gap. I cut them to match the angle of the gable and then screwed them on the face of the door. Not pretty but the door will have to be replaced when I do the roof, here soon.
Still gathering materials for that project. Ordering the last of them, that could not be sourced locally, tomorrow.
Will pick up the white wood this week, and hope to start stripping the roof next weekend.
