no previous part Part 1 of A Small Woodworking Shop Expansion series Part 2: Started Expansion of the Shed »

Update: Started expansion finally on what is essentially now, just a 10X8 tool shed. If all goes as planned,
I will almost triple my sq. footage and the tool shed will become my shop.
ManI like the sound of those words.

Having seen many great shop builds and shop tours, mine by comparison is not much of an undertaking.
I will be building an approxmately 50 sq. ft. extension and then tying this all in to an existing 7×8 plastic
shed that I will reinforce and insulate.

So the tool shed will go from 70 sq. ft. to around 170 sq.ft. Still pretty small, but to me,its a relatively big deal.

The current space is just too small for me . Its bursting at the seams with the modest amount of tools I
have, and next to impossible to work on projects in there without bumping into things. Not safe to work
that way either.

I have been formulating many space saving ideas. Along the way I will be incorporating some
of those into this project.Actually that may make for a blog all by itself. Anyway, I would welcome any comments
and suggestions and feel free to follow along on my little adventure.
