Man I got a lot of stuff


Like I said alot of stuff!!!!

Okay, I have been wanting to do this for a long time and have finally strated the transformation. Some of the pictures show you what my garage/workshop look like now. I have started the shed in the back yard, and as you can tell from the pictures, it is coming along fine. This thing is big!!!!! It will be two stories. Got a lot of stuff to put up there from my house and my mother in laws house. Enjoy the pictures and will be working on it this weekend, hopefully geting the roof on and drying it in. The first and second picture are my garage right now. The third is the beginnings of the shed, the forth is the walls up, and the fifth is the bones of the shed as it stands right now. My mind cant wait but the body after three days of working is letting me know how old I am. Please excuse the way this is set up, this is my first time at adding pictures to a blog.

Is the stuff in your garage going to go into the shed or is your workshop going to be in the shed? Either way, looks good.

It is well worth it. There is a shop in there some where. If you want some inspiration, look at my blogs. I smiled when I seen your first picture. Looking forward to seeing your progress.

God Bless

If I am counting the sheets of flooring right, it has 3 sheets of ply across the width, making it 12’ wide, and 2 and a half sheets across the length making it 20’ long. Is that right? With that gambrel roof, especially if you deck it and use that for storage, would make for a nice little shop space.

It does beg the question… Are you keeping the shop in the garage, or moving it out to the new shed?

It feels great to expand and be able to get more organized. Keep plugging away, it will be worth it.

I’ll have to ask too, shed is going to be shop or storage?

Man, I would give my soul for a shed like that. Looks great so far.

Hey guys, he said it is 2 stories, so he will probably store his stuff and mother-in-law’s stuff on the top floor and have his shop in the bottom floor.

To answer the question the whole thing is going to be storage. I can get more stuff in here, and the garage already is powered and ready to go. I have a lot of stuff. The size is 12×24. dbhost you were close except it was 3 across and 3 full down. I wouldnt mind making this my shop, but I really need the space. Keep watching and you will sse the “junk room” aka the garage turn into a self respecting shop. Thanks for the great comments, and hope everyone had a great thanksgiving and remember why we have such a holiday. To my lumberjock family, be safe during the holiday season, in and out of the workshop.
