Thanks, and I’m glad you have room to expand—my basement walls are not very cooperative. LOL

Great addition you will have! We all need more shop space! As soon as I built my barn, it was too small!

I just had to tease you…after I put my spectacles on, I saw it was your TS : )
I hope you find the time sooner than I will to reorganize your shop.

Roger, I thought that was a nice article, specially cutting out the little tool shapes.
I did my shop in Google SketchUp a couple years ago.
Handy because it lets me work in 3 dimensions.

A nice large shop will be nice Roger. Can’t wait to see it finished. Like Pete, I use Sketchup for my planning, but the cut-outs work well too.

I had to go measure mine, only 23 X 12, but I have to share it with my pickup in the wintertime, to enlarge
mine I would not only have to knock out the wall, but would have to build onto the garage. Hope you have
fun planning and using all that space when you get a round toit.

#15 posted 368 days ago let me get this straight. I have this borrowed corner of a garage to store my tools and have to do the actual work out in the alleyway. And you are doubling your shop space from 300’ to 600’??? There is just something really, really wrong with that!

Thnx guys n gals. Spoon: lol.(I currently have about 435 sq. ft., so, with the wall moved, it’ll give me a bit over 600’). I was told by the wifey when I 1st put the wall up, I shoulda put it there to begin with, but, oh no, I said, “this’ll be big enough”.... NOT! LOL Now with a few more added pieces o equipment, I’m gettin a lil cramped, so, I’m gonna move the wall. I am very thankful that I am able to expand. I never really thought I’d have a shop like I do have, but, these past many years, my hobbies have been changing, so, that’s my story, and I’m stickin to it.. Thnx for all ya’lls comments.

Go for it Roger, you have about the same as me, i’d be too scared to increase mine it would just create more hiding places for my gear & take twice as long to find anything :::))))

What I think is that you should Roger instead of expanding your walls is contracting your walls move them in making your shop smaller so you’ll know what it feels like to work in a smaller shop like us less unfortunate LOL

Good luck and keep us posted :)
