I guess you can say that I live in my shop, literally!!! I couldn’t afford to build a shop because I’m on a limited disability income so I removed the wall between my two bedrooms and made a shop in them. My living room was big enough to set my bed up, I’m single and I don’t get visitors so it’s not really a problem. What was a problem was that the bedrooms are only 9 feet wide so it got crowded very fast. This year I decided to switch it up and move my shop into the living room and “live” in the bedrooms so I moved my big screen tv and everything else into there. This was a vast improvement and gave me the space I needed to set up shop.
This workshop isn’t anything special. It’s just a place for me to tinker and provides a much needed hobby to distract me from my spinal injuries.
