Default The Shop at Casa Loco -- a project in process.

My shop is a disaster. I suffer from a rare condition called "flatsurfaceitis" -- a debilitating condition that has sometimes disastrous effects on those around me. It has, on occasion, caused injury. Many times it has cost significant amounts of money in the re-purchase of items thought to have been previously purchased. Mostly it has just given rise to the situation pictured below.

Realize, this is the "before".... Hopefully in the coming months it will become a distant memory....

Looking at the exterior wall from the inside...
I hope you put barrier before you insulate...

Barrier? Eh? Do I need to put plastic sheeting in over the studs before I put up fiberglass?

That's a nice size space. I have a place for everything--almost. But the problem is putting it back. I tend to stack things up after using them, then have to reclaim the two flat spots by putting everything away all at once. One thing that really helped is I put a set of shallow shelves behind my assembly table that hold things I use there. Same with my table saw and other tool areas. Shelves and drawers. All tools now sit on stands with doors and shelves or drawers inside, which keeps the sawdust out.

The weird thing is,when my shop is a mess,I can mostly locate what I need,yet after it's tidied up,I can't find anything.

You can't drive a bridge spike with a tack hammer(so I'm told)

Phase 1 of "The Project From Hell" officially begins today. Phase 1 is the "left wall" of the garage (first posted picture).

Phase 1A: The "tear down" of everything against the wall. This tear down is likely to take more than a couple days as I have to create space in the garage to receive all the shi.. er, um... "stuff" that is piled against, leaned up against, nailed to or simply lost in that wall. There will likely also be a purge that happens where some of the shi.. "STUFF" gets rehomed.

Once the tear down is complete, the walls will be insulated with R15 bats and OSB will be put up. I will also likely also put foam insulation sheets in the garage door. If I get all of this done by the end of next week, I'll be pretty happy. It will likely take even longer since I have a life that seems to be filled with numerous types of interruptions.

Phase 1b can then begin: A chase containing wiring, 8" dust collection main line and compressed air line will be created on the floor. 3 or 4 4" dust collection outlets will be tapped into the main line.

Phase 1c will be the building of cabinetry and shelving against the newly insulated and covered wall.

If I make it to phase 2, I'll tell y'all what it is.. :-)
