I have an 8×20 unheated space on the basement level that opens directly onto the driveway. I want to start to turn it from a collection spot for tools and what-not into a space where I can do layout and assembly. Of what, not sure yet, but without a workbench or saw run-off or mitre saw bench or tool cribs or anything that might be found is a work space, it’s hard to build anything, or, for that matter, even find anything!
I insulated the ceiling and covered it with 1/2” ply after running out three leads for overhead lighting circuits. I hope I can actually locate them once I’m ready for electric. Oddly, there is a steel beam running the short direction of the room, and in a fit of some kind of exuberance, I bought a rated beam trolley. You can see it in the long shot. U learned how to weld in my 30’s and have liked the idea of combining steel and wood for some pieces, so who knows if the overhead pick will ever come in handy.
Here are pictures. Some “Before” shots showing the mess as it is today. Hopefully, I’ll add to this blog with some improvements over the next year. I’m giving myself a year to get the space in some kind of useful shape. Wish me luck.
If anyone has the inclination to comment, please feel free.
