My shop is a freestanding, dedicated 16’ x 24’ building located on the northeast corner of our 3 acre property. A shed is attatched to the rear for yard and garden tools and equipment as well as the location for the air compressor. I am fortunate to have just about every tool I need, and though they are not of the highest quality, for the most part I am satisfied. I would like to upgrade my lathe, as it is the same AMT lathe I bought in high school in 1976, and my bandsaw as it is very underpowered for resawing. As is the case with most shops mine is a work in progress. I want to insulate the walls and ceiling and cover the walls and paint white to brighten things up. While the temps here in ne. Ga. don’t stay too cold for long periods, insulation and a good heat source would drive up the enjoyment factor a great deal, especially as I get more time to spend in the shop in winter than in any other season. I am also thinking of reorganizing, and trying to keep things neater, as well as building new cabinets and tools stands. Those old kitchen cabinets are a tad drab. The first two pictures are of the shop exterior looking north and east. the second three are the messy interior of coarse, and the last is looking west out the front door of the shop.
