I just relocated from Denver so I’m in the process of getting my shop re-established. I miss having things neatly arranged the way I like them but I’m excited to get this new shop outfitted the way I want it.

My shop is in a 22’ by 30’ barn with old timbers that was lifted and placed on a nice new slab foundation…floor is nice in the summer but like an ice cube in winter.

Tools I’ve got so far:
Delta 3HP left-tilt cabinet saw (I love this thing)
16” Laguna bandsaw
8” Grizzly G0593 jointer with spiral cutter head
DeWalt DW735 planer
Delta 12” compound miter saw
Porter Cable 7518 router & Woodpecker PRL lift
Makita RF1101 router
Bosch random orbit sander
Craftsmen 150psi pancake compressor
Lie Nielsen dovetail saw
Lie Nielsen #4 smoothing plane
Lie Nielsen large shoulder plane
Lie Nielsen bronze block plane
Lie Nielsen rabbet block plane
American Pattern Beveled Edge Chisels by Ashley Iles (I love these)
bunch o’ clamps
old Tage Frid inspired workbench

I just finished insulating the barn and adding a 5000 watt Ouellet blower to fight off the northern chill. Flip it on and in 30 minutes the barn is ready. This summer I’m planning to lay down some 2×4 and insulating on the floor and cover with plywood so I reduce the concrete slab heat sucker.

Pictures to come soon.

I am jealous. I have an old house (275 years) but the barn is long since gone. That is a great size. Might want to check out that DRIcore stuff. I bet even a little gap with some plywood would help the temp on the slab.

My shop floor was concrete. I know what you mean about cold. No matter what I wore on my feet, the cold just creeped up to my knees. I laid 2×4’s on the flat and put in solid foam insulation under 4×8x3/4 plywood. Don’t forget to cut some slots (+/- 1/4w x 1/4dx 4’ apart) on the bottom side to allow a little air flow in case of a spill. You can also run your power to floor recepticles if you know where your power tools will reside. My walls are covered with 1/2” OSB and the ceiling is 1/4 OSB. Very reasonable and works great. Good luck.

Hi Skozub,

Your shop description sounds nice. When you get a chance it would be nice to have a visual tour to go along with the description.
