« Part 4: We have access (the stairs are in) Part 5 of New Shop series Part 6: Working in it »

Yesterday I finished painting the loft and started on the stair railing. The heat got me about the middle of the afternoon (first 90+ day) I had a beer and went at it this morning again. Trimmed out the room and windows and finished the stair railing.
I am as finished as this is going to be for awhile. I still need to put more light in the loft and finish installing the stove but those can wait until fall. Time to start working some projects and get tools placed where they will work the best.

Very nice. 16×24? That’s what I was aiming on size for future big shop. Seems like it would work for me. The loft would be excellent bonus.

It works for me. I have room for an outfeed/assembly table off the table saw. I’m not using the loft to its full potential either.
