Well Hii All.

This is my first post and thanks for the warm welcome. I’m a general contractor located in Florida and have been hit by the economy. I recently had to stop renting a separate shop a few miles from my home and decided to spend the money on rebuilding a shed that was on my property when I purchased my home. The old shed was 192 s.f. and as you can see it’s trippled in size. I have been spending my free time trying to get things the way I would like them but as I’m sure all of you have experienced it’s time consuming.

Here a few pics showing the old and new shed as well as a coulpe of interior shots. The chop saw stand is a work in progress as is the entire shop.

Thanks again

-- Robert, Florida

Nice shop. It does take time to organize,but well worth it and you certainly have a nice space now.

Robert, this is a nice looking shop that you have put together. Expanding it the way you did, gives you quite a bit more room for working in there and, of course, it also gives you room for more tools! That is a nice miter saw station that you added. I think mounting the saw below the bench is the way to go since it frees up the more bench space when the saw is not in use.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Interesting. So you built a box around a box and just sort of, absorbed the old shed into it?
