First off, thank you all for the great replies. I believe I will make the move.

To answer a few questions
- I do not rent my current shop. My family owns a few building in town and it is one of them
- It is more of a hobby shop than a business. Although I do comissions from time to time.
- I mostly build medim sized projects with a few larger ones. Medium being an adirondak chair.

I was going to ask about insulating the shop. It was suggested that I do so. I do not plan on cooling the shop but I will be trying to keep it somewhat warm in the winter.

I am thinking 1/2” ply for the walls and I would like to paint it a bright color. White? Grey? Tan? What is a good shop color to brighten the place up and make it look larger.

I do plan on putting all tools on wheels except for my table saw.

Thank you all. I will probably be doing some sort of video journals on the whole process.
