Constructing My New 30 X 30 Shop #9: Finished Shop, Equipment in Shop But Not Setup

224 days ago by helluvawreck | 59 comments »

This is the last part in this blog about my shop construction. The following pictures show a few last stages on the completion of the building. Some of the pictures show some of the machines as they were being uncrated or shortly after the crates were hauled out. The last two pictures show the building after it had been completed. The last four pictures of the equipment shows the machines as they were shot looking toward the machinery from each corner. Of course now the important work begi...

Constructing My New 30 X 30 Shop #8: Siding, Heat Pump, Insulation, Steps and Deck

252 days ago by helluvawreck | 32 comments »

In this part I document the installation of the siding, heat pump, insulation, steps and deck. Everything went fine and since a picture is worth a 1000 words no commentary should be necessary. In the picture above you can see the electrical service. It is a 200 amp, 230 V, 1PH service. I chose to put a heat pump in the shop. I will have both heat and air. However, I am planning on setting the thermostat to come on at the high and low point of 80 and 60. In ot...

Constructing My New 30 X 30 Shop #7: Roof Framing and Sheeting

278 days ago by helluvawreck | 37 comments »

I apologize for the delay in getting this part of my blog up. I’ve been a little busy and I’ll try not to let it happen again. I’m sorry that I don’t have a more logical group of pictures for this part but the pictures should speak for themselves with little or no commentary from me. You should be able to see that there will be an attic storage space. I appreciate you reading my blog about my shop a...

Constructing My New 30 X 30 Shop #6: Putting the Exterior Sheeting on Walls

307 days ago by helluvawreck | 34 comments »

The next step in the construction of my shop was to install the exterior sheeting. This will stiffen everything up prior to putting up roof trusses and the rest of the sheeting. Since these pictures should be self explanatory, I won’t bother to comment on each picture. The next step will be the roof trusses and the rest of the exterior sheeting. Thanks for reading this blog about the construction of my shop.

Constructing My New 30 X 30 Shop #3: Pouring Foundation Walls, Backfilling Walls, Red Barn

326 days ago by helluvawreck | 35 comments »

The pouring of the walls went well. There was ample steel rebar in the footings and the walls were poured with rebar in them . These will be bent over into the floor so the concrete in the floor will be tied into the concrete in the walls. It is difficult to see the rebar sticking out of the walls but it can be seen if you look carefully. The concrete in the footings was given ample time to cure before the pouring of the walls. The concrete in the walls was given ample time to cure before the...

Constructing My New 30 X 30 Shop #2: Clearing Site and Preparing Foundation for Pouring

330 days ago by helluvawreck | 31 comments »

Unfortunately I lost some pictures of clearing the underbrush and the trees that needed to come down. This was the most convenient site that I could find for the shop. Unfortunately it required a substantial foundation because of the slope which added to the cost somewhat, but in the long run I think that it will pay off because it is easily accessible to the basement and main floor of the house. It is also near the barn where I will be able to store some, lumber, jigs, and hardware. T...

My Dream Shop Build

634 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 30 comments »

If you’ve been following my blog posts all summer (links at the end of this write-up), you are probably as excited about this video release as I am! Welcome to the Dream Shop Build! Every woodworker (I think!) dreams of someday being able to construct their own dedicated woodworking space. To date, I have bounced around from garage to garage (about 4 times), making the best of a crappy real estate situation. And while I have been lucky to have fairly large spaces to work in, I sti...

New Shop: Design, Construction, Outfit #1: Initial attempt at blogging and a test of interest level

1619 days ago by SteveM | 4 comments »

Well, here goes; my first attempt at a blog, and because of that I’ll keep this entry short to see how my editing and pix uploading skills turn out. The purpose of the blog is to chronicle the design, construction and outfitting of my new shop. Assuming there is interest, I’ll add entries as progress is made. My hope is others can benefit from seeing the mistakes I’ll surely make along the way. I guess the first question is why build a shop. The answer seems a bit obvious since who does...
