Never build a workshop before would like to know how and what timber do I use
A very warm welcome to the community. It's great to have you join us.
A new workshop would be an exciting project. I'm sure our ever-helpful members would be more than happy to assist.
Have you considered a steel shed for your workshop or are you certain you want a timber structure?
It might assist members in recommending designs and materials to know more about what you plan on using the workshop for.

Thanks for your patience,
It's great to hear about your workshop project. An enclosed workshop would be built with Structural grade Mgp10 H2f treated pine timber. Here is a link on How to build a stud wall which you might find useful in the project. Given the size of the workshop, significant construction techniques will need to be used to ensure the stability of the build.
If you can provide more details on the design, where windows and doors are located, what you intend to build the roof from, what the base will be, then I can assist with a more thorough explanation. It might also be helpful to check with your local construction regulatory authority to find out the minimum specifications for such a build. There will be a variety of requirements that you'll need to meet and they can provide that information.
We're looking forward to hearing more about your project and seeing what plans you have for the layout.
Small window will be on the right and door in the middle with a flat roof.
Any suggestion with the base what size the timer should be H2 or H3 and also for the stud 75x45 ???
Any timber that will be in contact with consistent moisture should be H4 treated. The base frame should be made from H3 timber as long as it is raised well above ground level. All interior timber can be H2 if it has no contact with moisture or is not in a damp environment.
The bases bearers could be made from Treated Pine Outdoor Timber Framing 140 x 45mm and the posts to support them would be 90 x 90mm 2.4m F7 Kd H4 Treated Pine Premium Wrapped. The floor can then be laid by using Structaflor flooring. For the wall, I would recommend constructing the frame from 90 x 45mm H2 treated pine timber. The studs can be made from 70 x 45mm H2 treated pine timber
If you have additional questions or need assistance, please let me know.
