All I can tell you is I married well. My shop for the last 7 years in this house has been in a 12×20 basement room. Whenever I work dust fills the house the smell of finish makes my wife nauseous. Last year she came to me with the idea of building a shop for me. I called in every favor I have been saving and got a 42×22 shop built onto the back of the garage with the help of a bunch of friends.
....Best friends a guy could have, helping me frame….
I have gotten to the end of the sheetrock stage and will begin trimming it this weekend.
I got some real valuable ideas from working in a small shop for so long. When I built the new shop I included a 10×8 finishing room with 3 banks of 3 bulb florescent lighting fixtures. This room will be sealed so I can keep cutting in the shop while I have parts drying with no fear of contamination. I also included a soundproofed 4×5 closet so the air compressor and dust collector can be used without so much noise in the shop.
I am making it pretty fancy for a shop but I want it to be a place that inspires me to design better pieces.
More to come as I get ready to trim and finish.
