I have a small barn out back behind my house that the previous owners used as a man cave. Not finished inside, except for lights and electrical outlets, so I immediately made it my workshop. Which is good, because the height of my basement is about 6 1/2’, so that wasn’t going to be a good solution! I’ve been so busy making things around the house or for other people that I haven’t had a chance to finish the workshop itself, though I did recently add a couple of small windows and an in-wall heater so I can work in there in the winter.

That is one sweet looking building. Big windows would be a great feature to have in a shop. Thanks for posting pictures of your shop.

They’re good and bad. It’s nice to have a lot of light when I’m doing finishing work, so I can see a good reflection off the piece to see if there are any spots I might have missed. On the downside, it faces south so the summer sun really heats the place up!
