I bought an old house with a two car garage which was in bad shape. I insulated, wired, drywalled and painted it up into my new shop. The first pictures shows before and the other pictures show now.

Wow, what a nice transformation on the the shop space, Andy!! You have taken a pretty basic garage and made it into a shop area that is a pleasure to work in, I am sure. It looks like you have organized your shop space well and you have ample head room in there to be able to store sheet goods lengthwise. It looks like your shop is well lit and it is nice to have windows in there that let in natural light in addition to opening up the garage door.

I like the work center you have built around your table saw. That really improves the functionality of the saw and gives you some additional work space. You have a nice set of tools to play with as well. Bummer about having to share your shop space with the washer and dryer but I guess they have to go somewhere. :)

Thanks for posting pictures of your shop. I enjoyed touring it.

Nice, very nice!

Sheetrock, paint and good lighting does the trick.

Lots of sheets, what are you building?

Like your furry buddy standing watch.
