Three years ago my lovely bride and bought a small hobby farm and built an agricultural building/barn…..a.k.a….my shop. When its finished, if its ever finished it will have 2,500 sq., ft on the main floor and 1,500 sq ft in the loft.

From the ground up, it has footing and foundation walls (the walls are insulated below ground) and a concrete floor done with radiant heating (a back up propane heater (radiant) is hung from the ceiling. Typical 2×6 construction with 12’ ceilings, no support posts but super expensive roof/floor trusses so that in the event I get my horses, I can move my equipment into the loft. It is framed for a drive through at front and back although I opted to cover the potential overhead garage door at the back.

I made my own windows which now I regret but I can always replace them.

The shop has a rotary phase converter, a professional spray booth, a Murphy dust system, a 6’ stroke sander, a 4’ edge sander, a SCM T120 shaper with power feed, a crapy 20” thickness planer, 8” jointer, a re-saw bandsaw, miter saw, drill press, and an Altendorf 10’ sliding table saw. Also a 10” Rockwell cabinet saw. Perhaps not all the toys but enough for me….........and a crappy 3’ lathe.

For me, it’s a dream come true even though it want an easy road to get here.

Cheers

Thank you.

I just bought about 4,000 board feet of 4/4 pine to do the siding…....gotta a great deal at an Amish sawmill inventory reduction auction. Today I am going to set up the scaffolding to do the upper sections of the gable ends…............exhausting work.

Next year I hope to stain it a chocolate brown and do the fascia and soffit in an off white to match the doors.

Then fencing.

Hi Roman,

You posted this before I came on board but I am glad it resurfaced on my list. Your shop description sounds just wonderful. Do you have any pictures of the inside that you would care to post?

Hi Scott

Thank you. Any pics I might have will be older and much has changed. The inside is plywood, crappy looking rotary spruce now covered in tools, jigs, wood but I will see what I can find.

Cheers

this is where the war takes place, its rarely empty of projects and even rarer….......when its half way clean

the view to the back where a very crowded spray booth is jammed into the corner ( I have dreams of busting out the back wall and pushing that booth into an addition out back). My tools are not the greatest but they do work for me, some are old like me,

A recently ripped out section of cabinets and replaced with raised, open, shallow cabinets so that I dont have to dig and guess where tools are hiding

and above my hand tool wall, and believe it or not I generally I can find what I need.

and a peak down the driveway looking out at the current “home” project…...a timber framed greenhouse. The framed in window will be removed for a glass door that goes into the greenhouse.

Really nice shop you have.
I enjoy seeing how and where people work.
As a LJ you can tell a lot about a woodworker by his workshop pictures.
Thanks for the great pictures.
