This is the shop that I built in 2009. It’s 26’ X 28’ with 10’ ceiling and an 8’ x 16’ drive in door in case the next owner wants to use it for a garage. I use it strictly for woodworking and occasionally for a little mig welding. It’s insulated very well so I can stand working out there in the winter (with the overhead heater on). The first thing I did was build the cupboards shown in the picture then the lumber storage rack and then the plywood storage rack. I’ll add more pics later…

Like Jim, I am seriously jealous. I bought my house before the market crashed in the hopes of selling it 5 or 10 years down the road for a house with a lot more land. That’s never going to happen now so I have learned how to make my woodshop fit into a two car garage. I.E. everything that I can’t pick up and move is on wheels!

Is that a concrete floor with relief cuts in it or is that a slab with a carpet runner I see? Hard to tell from the picture (when your as blind as I am anyway!)

Very nice shop. You may have a hard time moving away since it’s set up so nicely.

I think I have both feet firmly embedded in the cement in the shop. It will be really difficult to get me to move from here! LOL
