« Part 1: setting up shop 1 Part 2 of setting up shop series no next part

well as you can see i have moved up to a much larger shop
those pictures where taken about this time last year
i went from a 20×22 two car gragage with a small isile to walk down.
now is a 22×32 3 car gragae with 10 ft walls 2 sky lights a 12 ft bank of windows on the north side
and more outlets than you could shake a stick at.

this next set of photos is what i have done over the past year

may i say that insulating such a structure is a real pain it took me along with some much needed help
most of the winter to finnish. along with instaaling a pellet stove i got a menards. i must say that who ever invented the pellet stove should be given some type of aplose or something because it really works well my shop can get to about 70 – 80 in the winter. it takes about 2 hours to get there from a cold start but that is not bad consiedering the weather we get in chicago.

so you can see i have made much progress on my shop. i have more to show. so i will post more later

Looks really nice, think about putting some type of wood sheeting on the walls. I used OSB in my shop, its fairly cost effective and you can hang a lot of stuff on it, you can’t do on drywall.
