It a frustration people have suffered since we started making tools... Where do they go when you need them?

Tools are often misplaced - or not put back where they belong, and that makes for a frustrating day of searching, prior to fixing the thing you need the tool for...

This is especially true for those who live on a farm or a ranch, where tools and shops are an essential part of your everyday life.

Dan Nyberg is a training manager for Morton Buildings, and says planning a well-designed farm shop is essential to the success of their operation.

"A central location to avoid tool migration is really big if the shop is not conveniently located tools tend to be taken from the shop. The connection of the shop to the balance of the operation you're going to spend significant other things going on if you can see the loading and unloading your grain like that the real plus as much of the work in the shop will be done in the offseason. The placement of your building is also important, as Northwind at 3 below zero will sure cool your work area off quickly."

He says if budget is an issue, you could consider building in phases. For more farm building tips, visit MortonBuildings.com
