It is looking good. After all this effort I am not surprised that you needed a nap. I am anxious to see the finished product because I am sure it will be a shop showcase. (Maybe you want to re-think about entering the Wood Shop contest).

The overall size is 34’x34’. That is 1156 square feet.

There is a finish room which is 12’x16’ or 192 square feet.

That leaves me with 964 square feet of working shop space.

It is a great size that is not too difficult to heat and power. I recommend 1200 square feet for a shop that you can live with for a long time if you are building and plan on being serious.
