1/2/10 – Haven’t updated this in forever. I have since moved and have a new shop. The first two photos are of the old shop up just for fun. Sort of sad to see it – it was the nicest just before I left!

New shop is up and running. Has to share space with the cars and the laundry, which makes it a bit less functional. The space is 20×35. The ceiling height is only 7’4” which can be a bit difficult at times, especially since I am 6’2”. Will try to get some new photos up as I get everything setup.

Welcome from Louisiana! May want to insulate those walls and ceiling. It has made a big difference on heating my shop. I agree with, Karson. Natural light is a must and I put more than twice the lighting that you have and, even though I was ragged about all the lighting, I find that during bandsawing and drilling with the drill press I need to add task lighting. Good luck with the developement of your shop.

Hi Fireball,

You have a nice shop space and a nice set of tools to work with. I really like the epoxied floor. It brightens up the shop space and makes cleaning much easier.

Thanks for sharing.

If it were me, I’d got get about 20 feet of plastic ridge vent and some shingles and cut in a continuous ridge vent in. They are pretty easy to install, and that gets all the heat out at the very top of the roof line. The only problem I see with the gable end vents is that those cost money to run, but then again, they do give you plenty of air changes per hour.

The shop is coming along nicely, really like the floor!
