Daniel Wieland had no idea building a shop and posting a video of the process would gather so much interest. The Lone Elm, Mo., farmer's almost 10-minute video of the shop-raising has garnered more than 6,000 YouTube views.

Highlights of his new shop include:
- Full insulation with all steel construction
- 18' sidewalls
- two overhead doors with openers and remotes
- Concrete aprons and an additional 35'x80' for machinery storage
- Floor drain for washing equipment inside
Wieland installed three walk-in doors, fluorescent lighting and overhead infrared heat. A finished office, kitchen and bathroom complete the structure and allow for overhead parts and supply storage.
