16’ X 24’. Built in ‘07. Small shop, but pretty much everything except the workbenches is mobile; so I’m able to maneuver when I have big projects, like an armoire in the shop.
I’m on a small urban lot, so the shop is just steps from my back door. Perfect man cave when I’m not doing a project. Air conditioned, TV, humidor, beer fridge, and zero gravity chair.

Very nice shop! I wish I had a gable roof instead of a gambrel. It appears you have a sunlight. If I’m right, please tell me about. Did you install? Again, great space!

Ron: Natural light from skylights would be nice. But I just have fluorescents, that are inset between the joists above the ceiling level, which makes them look like skylights in the photos. The good thing about your gambrel roof is storage space, which I wish had more of!

That photo is deceiving. I see the lights above your drill press and bandsaw(?), but the lights above your lumber rack had me convinced there was a skylight. But now that you point it out, I can just about see the tubes! Yes, my high ceiling is great for storage … like having two stories, but the side walls are not really high enough for decent windows. I’ve been think of skylights for quite some time!

Beautiful shop and machines, one of my favorites here! Love Fairhope, it a quaint town. I am a couple hours north in Madison, MS. Also I really like the size and architectural character of the outside of your place. Well done!

Greetings from Hoover! Love the pictures, your counter top/workbench is supreme. But even better is the folding table, I think I”m going to steal that idea. That’s the perfect answer for my space limitations.

Alan:
Interesting you consider the folding table as your answer to space limitations. Matter of fact, I’ve always considered it the next item to upgrade and had on my list to replace it with a bitchin’ assembly table on casters. But, as it turns out, the folding table just works for me. I have a set of clips in my ceiling to fold it up and stow it out of the way when I have a big project going on and need it out of the way. And the storage units under it are on casters so as to roll aside out of the way. In my/our limited space mobility and remove-ability of all large items is key.
RTR!
