About 2005 the garage used to have exposed rafters and studs. I insulated it and put up wall panels, put a ceiling in for attic space. I ran power out to the garage from the house with a box in the garage. One breaker for ceiling outlets for lights. One breaker for in-wall AC unit on music side. One breaker for north side, one for south side. About 2010 I added a wall down the middle of the building. It’s one half woodshop and one half music room / bicycle storage. I got tired of my drums and recording gear getting dusty.

I recently flipped the shop around and put on a small addition for the dust collector. I also built a simple cart for cut offs. It rolls away and sheet good go behind that.

Josh, it looks like you have put together a pretty nice shop in which to work. You appear to have arranged it well and have it well organized. Thanks for the tour.

Well done Josh, I just saw your video. Thought I stop by here for a look. Appears you have a place for the great escape.
Those last three posters up there I recognize from my shop pics and about every other shop on the site I’ve seen. They get around.

Josh, you really have a nice shop. You seem to have a lot of room and some good equipment too. Nice going.
