Shed to shop, what would you do.

    So im currently using my shed as a store/warehouse and want to build a proper shop (ish) as I need to basically treble the size of what I currently have.

    Im wondering whats peoples opinions on the best way forward.

    I have been quoted 33k for a 10x30m shed, however I asked for the 40mm insulation and they quoted the pvc panels instead so im expecting the cost to rise when I do get the proper quote.

    Im wondering peoples opinions on whether or not building with blocks is a better option.

    Place needs to be warm, it will be about 6m high.

    The foundations are there, it would need 4 walls and a roof. Both options would require a new floor, insulated and would be studded out and insulated behind also for product display. Am I better going with a bought steel structure or building with blocks regards price. and the subsequent heating bill from both options.
