My shop is under construction at this time. It is 25×30 with a 10 ft ceiling height. I have plans to add an enclosed lean to on the back for lumber storage and to place dust collector and aircompressor. I am currently wiring it myself so it is a slow process with school, work and kids. I have a 200 amp main panel so I will be able to add just about anything I want, donations currently being accepted, lol. I hope to have some pictures posted soon, and will be more than happy for any suggestions on a layout. Oh yeah I will also have to use the shop for storage of my antique car.

NEW The first two pictures are of some of my wood. Primarily Walnut and Maple with small amounts of Cherry and Oak. I also have been given some very nice Cedar boards. I got lucky with the wood met a guy who works at the lumber mill and rescued the wood from the soon to be mulch pile got it all for $50.

The rest are of some of my equipment an cabinets can’t tell much from the pictures will continue to update pictures as it progresses.

This sounds like a real nice workshop, particularly the 10 foot ceiling and 200 amp service panel. I am looking forward to seeing pictures as well.

This is progress. You didn’t mention it but are you going to put in any heating/air in the shop?

I have a propane fired jet blower that iI am using for heat. It works verry well and will last 12 hours on a 20 lp cylinder. I have not figured out how I plan on cooling it yet. I may just go with a simple window unit.

This looks good so far. I love the space and the ceiling height. This has a lot of potential. I know that you are getting anxious because I would be if I were in your situation. The hardest part of any construction effort is working through the final details where the process seems to slow down to a crawl.

I am looking forward to seeing pictures of the shop with your tools in it. And then phase II will begin with the cabinetry and other shop necessities.

It looks like you will have plenty to keep you busy for a while.

Wow, What a beautiful building for your shop. I am in the process of putting a new 14 X 21 shop in my garage. Still need 200amp service and wired yet. Got my cyclone in today. Good luck on the new shop.

God Bless

Naw, way too much room for me. I don’t know how to work without tripping over myself. (If that sounds like envy, it could be because it’s envy.)

Looks really good. You for got to tell us what kind of car your “antique car” is.

About the same size as my shop Pyro. One good thing, you have plenty of space outside to work with.
