We built our Timberframe home 4 years ago and I added a 36’x36’ garage that I walled off the back 14’x36’ for my shop and that’s where it stopped. Slowed by my father-in-law’s illness (he lives with us) and a 100 other excuses I am finally getting started on finishing the room and setting up shop. But being laid off for over a year and not a whole lot of money it’s going slow. Here’s some shots of my progress so far. First pic is doorway from garage side, 2nd back corner is home for future cyclone, 3+4 are other end of shop. More to come

This is certainly a nice looking shop that you have to work in. I really enjoy seeing the walls clad as you have done. Also the ceiling height and windows that you have in there are added bonuses. I have about 92” to the joists in my shop and it can be a challenge to maneuver sheets goods and long boards around in there so I always like to see shops that have high ceilings as your does.

You have a nice set of tools as well. And the slat wall is a good idea for organizing/storing hand tools.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

Thanks guys, the barn board was left over from ceilings in my newly constructed timber-frame, Poor calculations on how much I needed, but it works here in the shop. Big plus is I can hang things anywhere without needing to hit a stud.

Nice, spacious shop. I sympathize with you about the 100 different things getting in the way. I’m there too! I especially like your wall.

Hope you get back to work – I can’t wait to see the end result of your shop!!
