« Part 6: In the Dry!!! Part 7 of The Saw Horse Workshop - A New Begining series Part 8: How I Spent My Vacation »

Hey LumberJocks, I’ve been working on the shop the last couple of days and I’ve gotten the inside insulated and have started siding the outside. Here are a few pics of the work so far this week )Monday & Tuesday – June 4 & 5, 2007.

These next 4 pics are the inside of the shop, the long back wall has slat board all the way across 4' off the floor for hanging jigs and things, and where I'll probably be staging most of my machines, except the table saw which will be set-up near the middle of the shop.

This last pic is from the inside looking out toward the sliding door opening and the office.

What is the size of your shop? Hopefully I’ll be starting my new shop shortly and I am thinking of a 20’ x 40’ but still don’t know if that is going to be enough in the long run.Right now I am using woodworking as a side job I hope to be able to move into a full time job in about 3 years.

Looks like it’s coming along well. What kind of exterior siding are you using, kinda looks like T1-11 ply, but can’t tell for sure?
