I was going to clean up but when I found these pics already on my PC I said what the heck thats about as good as it gets. when I first started I had a 10×12 shed then built this. It is 20×30 and felt like a castle when I first moved in. Now it is like my britches, need to be bigger. I rarely don’t have a project started, although it may set idol for long periods before I finish. This is my second winter to heat with the wood stove and I love it.Upstairs I have a loft for storing some of my lumber. I have large windows on each end of the loft which let air flow through and in the summer is almost like kiln. I must like as I sure do spend a lot of time out there. Anyone this way is welcome to stop by.

Duane, this is a nice shop that you have to work in. It is nice to have a separate storage area for your lumber, especially one that will keep it dry. It looks a little difficut to get to it since you have to go up and down a ladder but I can empathize with you. I have been storing some of my lumber in the attic since I have run out of room in my lumber rack and have to take boards up the ladder ( and get them back down) one at a time. I like the glass that you have in the door. This admits a lot of natural light which I would rather work under.

You have some nice tools in there to play with and it looks like you have plenty of space between the individual tool stations to work and move around. I would feel at home working in there.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed the tour. If I ever get down your way I will look you up.

Very nice shop you have there, I like the loft idea. As for the space issue I think others will agree with me on this one, no matter how big your shop is you always catch yourself saying “if I just had more space” Thanks for the post.

Nice shop. And it looks like a great heat source and recycle obliterater.

Your radial arm saw blade looks like it on backwards….

After close inspection, it’s an optical illusion.

Nice shop!
