I believe my new shop is finished (more or less). I have finished the loft, railing on the stairs, and have installed and vented the pellet stove and it is heating the shop in the mornings. We’ve gone from 100 degree days to 60 degrees in a couple of days. Here is a couple pictures of the inside.
16’ x24’ is a little light but it forces me to keep things cleaned up and put up. The loft works pretty well for tool storage until I can get some cabinets on the walls. I think eventually I will use the loft for glue up and finishing.
I also installed a dust collection system. I wasn’t planning on doing that for a year or so but I got curious. I went on craigs list just to se what was available in DC and there was a Jet listed for $150 about 75 miles away. I let it sit for about a month then got to thinking that might be a deal I didn’t want to lose. Went back on line and the price had dropped to $125 I thought about it for another week or so then called the guy and went over and picked it up. It was a Jet 1100cfs 115/220v changed over to 220. He had hardly used it and was trying to sell his place and down size. I brought it home and plumbed it in. I put a thien separator inline and put the cone in the DC and it works great. Really glad I picked it up. Mad my shop go a couple hundred over budget. It was worth it.
