barrie, On
Canada

My shop is a two car garage. Although two cars don’t fit comfortably. A few years back I was still able to park car in garage in the winter by moving all my tools to one side. I finally gave up this winter and the car stayed outside.

All my wood is kept in the rafters. Yes looks heavy and my wife keeps saying it will fall some day but I keep and eye on it. Allot of the wood up there is scrap 2×6 lumber I acquired and has been drying up there for 6 months now. It is a little messy right now as I am working on a screen door.

The shop is spray foamed and heated for winter use.

Looks like a good working space and some good tools too.

Lots of load. But it has 2” of spray foam between rafters. I hear that spray foam increases the strength by up to 50%. Its not as cold as Alberta but still gets to -20 and -30 C at times in the winter.
