My shop was born in 2003 when we built an attached garage onto the back of our 100 year old home. It was built big enough to be home to My and my wife’s vehicles, plus my motorcycle. And we also wanted it large enough so I could finally have a workshop, for both maintaining our vehicles (I’m a former auto mechanic) and so I start taking on remodeling jobs around the house without the burden of a table saw in the basement, the radial arm saw in the dining room and other tools scattered wherever they’d fit. What we ended up with is seen in the first picture, a building that is 3 cars wide by 2 cars deep. And just to make sure there’s enough room, it has an upstairs as well, which is mostly just used for storage right now, but has the option of being finished out if time and money ever permit. The second picture shows my current woodworking corner in the back-left quarter of the garage, which amounts to about 17 ft x 18 ft in size. It not yet organized as well as I’d like it, but it’s workable for now.
I added a new picture including me in the shop (now that I have a camera with a remote control). In the lower right corner of the 3rd photo and the 4th photo is my trusty sidekick “Kdos” with his ever-watchful eyes to ensure I’m doing everything correctly. :)
