First of all I would like to say thank you to everyone for the comments on the first blog, they have helped give me the nudge I need to get this project underway properly.
I have started on the first phase of the workshop remodel, the cleanup. It is my intention to clean up the entire shop before I start moving things out to do the remodel. I have been cleaning and sorting for about a total of 6 hours these past two evenings and I am feeling pretty good about the progress I have made. If I hit it hard on Friday I can probably be finished with the cleanup and then I can start moving things out on Saturday.
On Wednesday I took a trip at lunch time to the Woodcraft store which is 1 1/2 miles from the office and picked up a few books on workshop setup, workbench construction, and space saving tips. Next week when I leave my son and the dog at home as I go off on a business trip I will have plenty of time to go through the books and start to put together a solid plan for the shop layout.
Here are a few more photos of the shop with the bit of cleaning and sorting I have done.
