Default My New Shop

My wife and I sold our house in Minnesota last summer and we bought a new place on the Chetek Chain of Lakes in Wisconsin. We moved in at the end of August. I've been super busy unpacking, getting settled in, and doing a ton of projects to get our new place to our liking.

My shop came last in the initial list of projects. So far, I've installed a furnace, put up the steel ceiling and fluorescent light fixtures, ran phone/cable/internet and did some wiring in the shop. I think it'll be an ongoing project to get the shop set up the way I want it.

I think I've got a very nice building to start with. It's a (square timber) log construction garage with a nice overhang on one end. It has a overhead door on the street end of the building and another one on the side, and a service door. It's got plenty of natural light with the 6 windows.

Here are a few photos of the outside. I'll also post photos of the inside.

Color me green with envy of all that space on the inside, but not so much over that white stuff on the ground outside.

This is to pretty to be a SHOP ! ! ! All kiding aside that is a well organized shop & I'm sure it makes all our members admire it. I like the planer, especially.
Good luck & enjoy yourself, Frank Lee

Eric, awesome looking shop! You're way further along than I am. Just curious as to why you closed in your ceiling with the metal instead of wood or sheet rock? It looks wonderful. I would never have thought of doing that.
