As my first attempt to contribute to LumberJocks.com, I figured I’d start of with my shop setup, or lack there of. Curently I reside in the basement, although nice in the winter, the stairs do not play well with others. Some people may think I’m crazy going from a basement shop to a garage shop in Wisconsin. Like I said the stairs are the biggest problem.
Right now the garage in question currently holds most of the outdoor stuff. Since the garage is a 3 car, and we only have one car, all of that can go to the 2 car part. This will leave me with a 12×28 space. When I get larger tools I can reclaim some of that 2 car part as well.
The first order of buisness is power. Right now there is just the standard out there, 2 wall outlet, 2 garage door opened outlets, and 3 single bulb light fixtures. I did install 4ft shoplights shortly after we moved in, 10 to be exact, although they will be rewired to the garage panel. The next task is insulation and drywall. Only the interior house walls are insulated and drywalled.
As far as heat, I’ll worry about that more towards winter but I have a few ideas on the burner simmering. For A/C, I’ll most likely install a service door in the rear for the breeze to pass.
I hope to getsome pics posted tonight or tomorrow.
That’s all for now.
