Todd;

Nice shop, well laid out and must be a great place to work. Bet that Uni-Saw was fun getting up the stairs.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Rick. So far I’m loving the new shop. The Unisaw was quite a feet to get up there. Three large men, one appliance dolly and some sore backs after!

The garage houses two full size vehicles full time….I’ve used as much space in there as I’m going to.

Very nice use of your space. It looks like it will make you a comfortable space to work and if you out grow it maybe you could add one more car space on the lower level and use two of the three for your shop and the upstairs for your office.

Nice looking space. I am curious how you are planning on getting completed projects down? Down the stairs? Have you considered adding a trap door in the floor with a chain hoist or winch to allow larger pieces to be lowered into the garage below? There was a good article in FWW a few years ago with a shop in the same configuration as yours, it might be worth a read.

So far I haven’t had any trouble. The stairs are 4’ wide and a very comfortable 6” rise. If I build anything larger than that I can assemble it down below. I thought about a hatch but the attic trusses are 24” on center so that limits the width.

I’m also able to carry 4×8 sheet materials up there without problem.

Thanks for the tip…I’ll look for that article.

NICE shop. good floor plan and tool layout, cant wait to see some of your projects posted. As far as the trap door , you could if you found a need to, just do like the old day barns, build a nice looking door to put in the gable end with a hoist that swings out when the door is opened. Just a thought, although it sounds like you have a handle on it.

Good luck and keep making sawdust.

Thanks for showing off your shop.
