Here are some preliminary pictures of my shop as I am completing a remodel. I still have some details to follow up on such as painting, wiring and storage, and I will post other pics as completed. My shop is 30’ x 24’ x 8’ and is now fully insulated. There is a small room originally meant to be a restroom that now houses my dust collector and air compressor as well as several tool boxes containing wrenches and tools. I basically upgraded (or added) all of my large power tools except for my jointer. I will probably upgrade it over the next couple of years. Anyway, here are some pics and I will post newer ones as I get work completed. -Jack

Hi Jack,

It looks like you have some nice tools and the space in which to work in your shop.

Thanks for sharing.

Here in Gainesville I am also improving my garage space into a workshop. I notice that you have a metal garage door almost identical to mine. I cut 1” panels of foam insulation and glued them into each panel of the door. This insulation has made a big difference in heating and A/C.

8iowa – Thanks for the tip, I’ve had that question in the back of my mind and wasn’t sure how I was going to handle it, but that sounds like a good idea and somewhere in the ballpark of what I was thinking.

Jack:

My garage has a 16’ wide metal door. I think it took five or six 4’ x 8’ sheets of 1” thick foam insulation to finally cover every panel in the door. I used foam adhesive and it has held up very well this past year. None of the foam panels have come loose. I also put vinyl “seal stop” on the outside edges and top to further reduce draft.

The last two nights here in Gainesville, the temperature has gone down close to freezing. Thanks to this insulation I have been able to keep the garage in the 60’s with a small 5100 BTU ceramic electric heater.

Thanks 8iowa…that’s definitely what I need to do…I woke up to take my daughter to school this morning and it was 12 with a wind chill of 5. Extremely cold for this area. Thanks again!
