Just a pole barn, out in the middle of nowhere. Pole barn owner allows me to use the barn as a shop, and shares the use of my tools. Shop is about five miles from my shop, a wee bit of a walk.

There are options to walking of course. Driving, riding a bicycle, riding a motor cycle, or maybe a horse, or even an Amish Buggy….

You are in some pretty country up that way…

This viewis from the “loft” area. There is a “game room” in the barn as well. Lots of sawdust in the picture, waiting to go out as mulch. That table with the drill press on it also has a grinder, a lathe, a three wheel bandsaw, and a vise. That old chair is a project in waiting, until I decide just what to do with it.

Bandit, it looks like you certainly have plenty of room in the shop. And what is not to like about the ceiling height that you have in there! Having to travel to get to the shop is a little inconvenient but with the building that you have it is certainly worth it.

Thanks for the picture.

For years I worked in first a 1 car garage and then a 2 car garage with 8 foot ceilings. When I retired I moved into a large work shop with a 14 foot ceiling. I have not banged a board against the ceiling sense. That is probably the best part of the shop. Oh by the way my shop is in my front yard about 50 foot from the house.
I probably don’t need transportation to get to the shop.

A view along the south wall, the loft is above this wall. More of a storage bench than a workbench. Clamps get stored there as well.
Storage for the lathe tools, also on that wall. Just a strip of scrap, with drywall screws to hold the handles in place, through holes in each handle.

Have since had to move to a new place, over 15 miles away. Too far to just “Go out to the shop” for awhile. So, Started to box things up, and haul it all ( except the tablesaw) to the new town address. Imagine dropping all of this stuff, in to a space this “big”???

I’ll need to stack a few more storage boxes out of the way, but the total area available will be about 12’ by 12’ in a basement, with a laundry area, and a ultility area to boot.
