Under construction – Dedicated workshop
This building contains both my shop and a place for my RV. I have located my compressor on the RV side and also have a place for a dust collector. The inside dimensions of the shop side is 13’ x 34’. I created an 8’ x 13’ room for finish work. To accommodate the RV, the ceiling height is > 14’. This allows for nice loft above the finish room. In addition I built a 9’ x 13’ loft at the front of the shop to support the overhead door. This space is designated for lumber storage in the future. There are plans to install a hoist for handling of sheet goods.

Update 3/26/13:
Ceiling is completed. Drywalled and painted. Interior walls almost complete.

Update 9/13/13:
Walls are complete, interior painted, and trim installed around most doors and top of walls. Miter bench/cabinets are complete. Bench top pending.

Any chance we could get some photos of your shop?

Well, it only took be almost a year to get my first shop picture out here. I hope to get others out here much more quickly. Due to the pergola project putting the RV on the far side, the shop side is a disaster right now. Hopefully I will start working on the inside of the shop this fall, as it cools down and the yard work lessens.

This is a nice start on your shop. I am sure it is “annoying” for all those other projects such as lawn mowing and landscaping that interfere with the shop progress. :)

Atceric,

Thanks. I am trying to enjoy it as much as possible, but work has taken me out of the country for a couple of years. When I left the electricity was complete, walls insulated, wall board up, and dry wall on 75% of the ceiling. I also hung a track for a hoist. I will use it to lower sheet goods from the storage area in one of the lofts. Some day I hope to complete this project.
