Welcome to The Nehls End Workshop.

This is a pre-fabricated shed style building ordered to my specifications. Its 12’x30’ with 8’ walls, insulated floor, 2- 24”x 48” sliding windows and a 6’ wide set of double doors.

For electric there is a 100 amp subpanel for 24 circuits. There is a total of 54- 120 volt outlets 2 of which are outside, 14 are in the ceiling and the rest are placed in double outlet boxes 48” off the floor and 48” apart around the shop. About mid way on the east wall and going around the south wall are 6- 240 volt outlets 48” off the floor and 96” apart. For lighting I used recess lighting with CFL bulbs, there are 18 fixtures done in 3 banks/sets of 6.

I still have much more to do, but can at least do some woodworking till I can finish it out and add the dust collection system and air lines.

Thanks for taking a look.

Greg, this looks like a nice start on your shop. I have always thought that having a stand alone shop is the way to go. I am looking forward to seeing more pictures of the inside of the shop when you get it set-up.

Greg, you have put together a pretty nice looking shop. It looks like you have it well organized and have a pretty nice collection of tools. The wood floor and windows are also a big plus in my book as well.

Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed taking a look at your shop.

I didn’t see any insulation. How do you deal with the heat and cold of Oklahoma?

Nice space and well organized.

Thanks Guys, John the insulation is next year’s project. For now I’m tacking up cardboard to create some dead air space to help to cool it some this year.

That is one of the nicest shops I’ve seen. You have everything so nice and neat. Everything in it’s place. It’s so pretty and looks like such a wonderful place to work in I’m just going to make it a favorite.

Greg, I understand budgeting project tasks all too well. I’m finally getting that shop cart built I’ve been wanting to do for 2 years now. It seems there are three “To Do” listings in my house – the financial, the Honey, and then mine.

Hey Greg – this is a really nice space! Very well organized and a fun place to be.

You were asking about the flip down clamp rack on my blog – and I would defineately think you could mount the hinge side to one of your side walls (maybe over your bench grinder?) at the correct height you want. Seems like it would make a nice addition to your already well organized shop!

I know it has been a while since you got your shop set up. Good lay out, nice tools. The only thing that concerns me is that there are no cover plates on the outlets! I hope by now they are all on!
