Nice start … given the compact size, may I assume you are leaning to hand tools only? Where in Georgia are you?

I use both hand tools and power tools depending on the time. During the day I mostly use power tools but at night I use hand tools. I am around Kingston.

Coming along nicely. 10×16 is a nice size, at my old place I worked out of a 10×10 shed – Well mostly worked just outside of the shed on some saw horses… birds chirping and a cool breeze.

What are you planning for lighting/windows? Cooling. I’m excited to see how this progresses.

Right now I work under a 9×9 canopy with rope lights and have to pull my tools out of a cargo trailer. I’m going to put clear and white pvc roofing to get as much natural light as possible. I have 2-4ft fluorescent lights that will be put in. I plan on putting 2 windows in and sticking a box fan or a small ac window unit in one for the summer.

Sounds like a good upgrade from the canopy. Keep up the good work.
