I built my home four years ago and had the framing contractor frame and dry-in my shop while they were working on the house. I put a 7/12 hip roof to match the house. After over a year working on my home landscaping, sprinklers, fence, etc. I started working on the inside of my shop, after I wired it and insulated it I finished the walls with 1/2”bc and 1/4” louan on the ceiling. I just put AC in and I am am not sure how it will do with all the dust. I don’t have a dust collection system. Some of my tools are 25 to 30 yrs old (table saw for example) and some are very new.

This is a nice shop that you have to work in. It looks spacious, well lit and you have some windows that let natural light in. Having an air conditioned shop is a plus as well. In your area it is definately needed. You have added some nice cabinetry and benches to your shop. I especially like the storage cabinets under the window that you have added. Shop furniture can be functional and look good too. These cabinets have both form and function. And I like your lumber rack. It looks like you have it pretty well filled.

You have a nice set of tools to play with as well. It looks like you have most of the major power tools in there. As you mentioned you do not have any dust collection. I would highly recommend that this be a priority. Not only does it improve the functionality of your tools but, more importantly, it protects your lungs. I had to put one in my shop, if for no other reason, than my wife would yell at me for “tracking sawdust into the house”. :)

You have a nice shop. Thanks for posting the pictures. I enjoyed the tour.

I like that one, I wish I had a dedicated building near home for a workshop. I like how it’s pretty tidy and everything is “shop stuff”. One day….

By the way, I live about an hour and fifteen minutes north of you in Dothan.
