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.

Well give us construction photos. Se we can follow along with your joys and toys.

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.
