The Sawdust Shed:
After several years of working out of a small garage attached to the house. I had a 30’ x 50’ pole barn style garage built. Then I took over, I put up a wall to separate the space into 2 areas. A 15×30 space for doing parking or working on a vehicle. The other side a 30’ x 35’ dedicated woodworking shop. 10’ high ceilings with metal sheeting for better light reflection. I framed wall with 2×4’s, put insulation in, ran electrical wiring and sheeted with OSB. It has its own 150 amp electric service panel. I still consider it a work in progress I’m always looking for ways to improve things around the shop. I’m planning a lighting upgrade and thinking about painting the top half of the wall white for better light reflection. I’m also planning to put a soundproof wall around the dust collector or even putting a small shed outside and moving it out there for a quieter shop. Also I wish I would have thought about incorporating a small finishing room. But all in all I’m fairly pleased with how it turned out. Thanks for looking, and I’m always interested in any suggestions for improving things around “The Sawdust Shed”.
