Johnston, RI
United States

My shop is located in my basement which minus the laundry room and stairs is 24’ X 48’. When i sell this house to move south I’m going to miss having a shop this size I can just walk down the stairs to get to.

Hey Larry,
Very nice set-up with lots of cool tools…and a cute bird to boot.

Larry, this is a nice looking shop. With over 1100 square feet of space you have plenty of room to wander around in there. And it looks like you get quite a bit of natural light in there from the windows that you have in your shop. You also have a nice set to tools to play with as well.

Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Thanks Splinterman & Scott, the bird walks around on that little tree the whole time we are in the shop talking crap, and every now and then she tells me to hurry up. no idea what her rush is hehehe.
when i bought this house a dozen years ago as soon as i saw the 9’ ceilings in the basement i knew it was going to make a great workshop. my girlfriend at the time said it would make a nice family room, we split up that day :)

Very nice shop. having the shop in the basement is very nice in the cold months. I’ve got to go out about half a hour before to fire up the kerosene heater just to get the temperature up toe 40 degrees. It’s 17 degrees outside right now! and it will be in the single digits after I get home tonight and can get to the shop.

It sure is Frank, I made sure to put heat and a/c down there for those really hot days in the summer, otherwise i have the sliding door open in the nice weather. When i move south I’ll be doing the same as you are now, heading out to fire up a heater to get it warmend up enough to stay out there.

Larry, you make very nice miniature reproductions. I’m glad to see that they are sitting around in the shop. They look great. Perhaps as time goes by you could blog about some of your techniques because I believe it would be very popular.

very nice set up, I love having my shop in the basement too it’s not as roomy as yours though but it does the trick. Cool little set of trucks you got there I collect model cars but they are metal ones from Dub city with rims and stuff like that.
