In the past six months, I’ve made a lot of progress in the shop.
The biggest improvement happened outside the shop when I finished a 12×16 shed in the backyard. It now houses the snowmobile during the summer, the bikes during the winter, along with all the other seasonal stuff that was taking up room in our 1 1/2 car garage.

In the past two weeks, I’ve taken part of the garage and walled it off for a ‘clean room’ where my husband can put sporting gear and other items he doesn’t want covered in sawdust. I’ve also built shelves for the new wall and added a coat rack and landing at the door leading into the house.

Photo 1 – from my workbench looking toward the garage door. Workbench is the Not so Big Workbench by Ed Pirnik of FWW.

Photo 2 – Clamp storage and pegboard above a set of drawers.

Photo 3 – The shelves on the new wall, coat rack, landing and shoe shelf in the background.

Photo 4 – New wall and doorway closed off with industrial curtain.

Photo 5 – Prior to new wall.

Thanks for looking

Looks like you got the makings of a nice shop Sandra. I think you got it spot on, having another shed or out house for “non important” items and tools is a must, besides where will you store your lumber and stuff.

Helpful tip, couldn’t you accidently on purpose drop a can of paint on that ping pong table, then turn it into aa assembly bench.

Good luck

David

Just took a look at your cozy shop and looks like you’re making the best of it. Learning to work in a small shop is a challenge. My shop is 24ftX24ft with o low ceiling. I dug it out myself and had ledge stop me from going down farther. I’m sure that shed will help a great deal and funny David might be onto something.

Paint on the ping pong table…. just might work, although I’ve griped about it enough that he’d be suspicious.
Hoping to start the shed in the Spring. I’ve been gaining confidence with each project, hopefully leading up to the big build!

took forever
and went way over budget

You’ve got a really nice shop. My first shop was a single car garage that I shared with the car, not much room. 30 years later I have the shop I dreamed of for years. Your of to a great start.

Can’t believe that I haven’t stopped in before….
Looks great, but an update with your work bench (with a vise) is called for!!!

Okay, duly noted! I’ve been meaning to update the photos.

And at what point am I no longer a ‘newby’??
