My workshop is a bit different in that it is in a round building! My wife and I have built and live in a sculptured concrete structure made up of 7 domes. My shop is at the far end of the garages. The curves do present some unique challenges but some real advantages also. I have built shelves along one wall and because of the curve I can store 2 – 5 gal buckets under the first shelf and it still does not take up room within the workspace. The ceiling is 14’ tall so swinging an 8’ board around is no problem. We did put a skylight on top so the shop is flooded with natural light. Since we had the advantage of building I was able to install a vacuum system piping under the floor so there are no overhead pipes to get in the way. We also installed a set of double doors leading into the garages so it is easy to move things in and out plus the shop can expand as needed for larger projects. Good thing my truck occupies that side of the garage.
