My workshop is very much a work in progress. I do all my work in an attached 2 car garage. I recently removed all the drywall from the walls, insulated and added numerous 110V and 220V circuits. I also upgraded the lighting to flourescent fixtures, finally I can see. Future projects include insulating the ceiling and adding some heat/cooling. For now I have mounted a window airconditioner in an exterior door. It works well but will be better with insulation. I am going to be tying into my homes forced air furnace this winter and it should make a huge difference. I have some pics that I have added. The shop will have a complete overhaul this winter hopefully. I am not a big fan of the drywall and would like to put up some T-111 siding. The shop is still used for storage of household items that are located in the back and I hope to have a new storage shed placed outside so that I can move the rarely used items there. All it takes is money and in this economy who knows when that will happen.
I have finally also gotten around to adding some insulation to the attic space. In the summer heat here, it routinely hits 100, the insulation has made a big difference. I have a 10,000btu a/c unit that is mounted in a door. I am able to keep the temp at a fairly comfy 80-85.
