This is the exterior of my shop in my back yard. It is disguised as a 5 car garage, but no cars get parked in it. I put some fence in front to stop the leaves from blowing in when the doors are open. This also keeps my dog out. Upstairs, I have about 800 feet of storage. If I ever sell the house the buyer can park cars in the shop. I will post some interior picture. the shop has a full bath.

Very nice.

I’ve got a full bath in my shop also. It sure makes it nice. I tried the shower out once just so I could say I did. Then I turned the electric water heater off so I could keep down the utilities.

Nice ! I would die for that much space. I don’t have any bath in my shop but I do have a water hose on the outside.

I do not use the shower very much, really only after doing a lot of yard work in the hot summer. But the commode and sink come in very handy.

I’ve got woods behind my shop that nobody can see me in, if you know what I mean.

Well that’s a beauty of a workshop ! Why did you disguise it as a five garage unit? Was it for future reselling purposes? I have two workshops a large wood shop ,and one is in a single size garage which I too disguised as a garage and use it as a machine shop the front of the shop looks like a double garage door or a big single but this is just a wall to the workshop and cannot open. yours looks great perhaps if we are patient we might be able to see inside? .Alistair

Yes, I do not have an attached garage. So for resale purposes I built it like a garage. It is nice to be able to open the doors when the weather is good.

Might come in handy as “Mother-in-law” quarters or as a rental apartment for additional income…but today, it’s the best shop around!

That would be great. I could buy more tools to fill it up.
