First-time poster, long-time lurker here. Working on my dream shop plans. Here is the initial concept for the first floor and I would love your feedback:

The front of the shop will be on the left side with the overhead door. In the back (right side of the drawing), that will be a paint/finishing room with an office loft above. The barn door between the main work space and finish room is so that I can open up the space and use it for glueups etc. when not finishing. The large closet at the top of the diagram is for compressor and filtration units. The rectangle beside/under the stairs is for vertical sheet good storage.

I plan to have some in-floor dust control for the main tools that will be in the center of the shop. For the other equipment, I am thinking about running duct across the ceiling and down the walls.

So, are there any major “no, no’s” in here? Other thoughts, suggestions, or comments? All critiques and ideas are much appreciated. I will continue to post plans and photos as we make progress.

Thanks.

What ceiling height are you doing?

Looks pretty darn nice to me. The main thing is that you’re comfortable in it.

I would like for the ceiling in the main part of the shop to be vaulted with wooden trusses. Highest point would be 20’+. The area in the finishing room will be approximately 9’ with loft above.

Have your say...
