Stumpybear, you have a nice shop in which to work. I have often said that I feel a stand alone shop is the way to go. I have often wished I had this type of set-up when I “forget” and fire up my planer before my wife is up in the morning. This is guaranteed to get me yelled at. :) You also have a nice ceiling height in there and it looks like you have been creative with your storage space by keeping your wood overhead. You also have a nice set of tools to play with as well.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed touring your shop.

very nice shop stumpy…looks comfy and a great work space…i think i spied a pellet stove in there…a great way to heat…i wish i had that type…but getting pellets here in the south is hard…ive seen the stoves for sale at lowes, but they are not reliable when it comes to pellets…anyway…your shop is a nice place …it looks to be close to the size of mine…which is 20×30 with ten foot walls… fact i just insulated mine a few weeks ago..boy does it ever stay warm in there now…........we did just the ceiling…could prob get away with doing just that…but ive started on the walls…a little harder with the shop all set up and things to work around…but i bet your happy with your stand alone shop as i am with mine…i always feel for the guys who have garage shops..much more of a challenge to work in…like yelling wives when you run the planner to early…LOL…sorry scott…..maybe a box of chocolates will help…

Okay, I LOVE this shop… Excellent space, good tool selection, and beautiful scenery to get inspiration from… Not to mention a wood stove to toast the toes when the scenery gets too much for them!

Thanks to all! Yea, the curtains was a touch from the wife. True on all statments though. I have gotten up 4 in the morning and worked till time to go to my real job and no one can hear me, Of course we are out next to the Rothrock State forest anyway. The only mistake I made was I didnt put any insulation under the floor. I can feel the cold at times. The building is sitting on 4X4’s on a shale and stone mound. Escavator did a great job of forming it in an area that we couldnt do anything with. I thought about blowing insulation under it but have put a hold on it as it seems ok this year. I did instal the Pellet stove and it dose the trick. Of course anyone having a P. Stove knows it takes a while to get the hang of settings and finding a pellet that burns well and is not crazy in price. This will be the third year for the shop. It was buy a new truck or put a shop in. Well as you can see the $15,000 loan was the way to go. I got a little carried away on the floor but I thought it would help on the knees. I just added the Air Filtration unit cause as much sanding I do I needed as much help I could to keep the air clean. Never gona get it all but it helps. Latest tool additions were a Milwaukee 1660-6 !/2 Copacrt drill ,great for forestner drilling cause of the handles and a Sawsall. Both Christmas gifts.. You think my wife is telling me something???? I’ll update the pic so show some other angles soon….Thanks Again
