After a long period of searching I’ve been able to find a space to rent.
It’s a bit big (170m2 or about 1830 square feet) for my needs but it will do more than fine. The price was logical and I team up with a friend woodworker to share the space and rent.

We will be moving in May 2012 and there is so much work to be done here. Don’t have a clue how long it will take to make as I have planed it, but I believe it will keep me busy for a long time.

Here are some photos and the workshop plan top view layout.

Always nice to start with a blank canvas and more room (if that’s posible) than you need.

It is good to get a new workshop. 500 sq ft will fill up quickly and become smaller.

Some calculation error,
170m² is 1830 sq ft and the pic’s shows that this is the true value.
500 sq ft is only 46m²

LOL Gengaskokaren is right the 170m² is 1830 sq ft and not 500 as I wrote (thanks man now is corrected) I am sorry about that mistake guys, what to say I just never use feet always metric :)
