To be honest John, Bentley had more room. The shed is higher but I had a lot more room to move around in Bentley. Had I the electric hookup, Bentley would have been the perfect workshop.

Good to see that you finally get a "shed", Barb.

You have it laid out pretty efficiently. I wish I could discipline myself to do that, so I would have a heatable space to work in winter time. Good job.

It seems I never finish what I

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

Nice space. How are you getting power to it? A few years ago, my wife surprised me by hiring an electrician who ran a 60 amp electrical sub panel out to the shop. Later I hard wired 3 20 amp circuits around the inside of the shop and color coded them. Insulated after that. I think she paid $1,500 on the electrician. He put a 20 amp GFCI outlets on the breaker box post, and I ran 10 gauge, 3 conductor cable through flexible plastic conduit into the shop. The cable was from a 25 foot heavy duty extension cord.

Every circuit has a different color electrical tape so I can avoid overloading. One circuit feeds the lights (all LED) and the AC or heater. The other circuit handles dust collection and a third the tool in use. We had another shed installed next to the shop last year (its my office now), so we wired it and ran similar cables to the GFCI's second plug. I keep a heater running in there all the time to keep my computers from freezing, but I have enough power to run a second heater in the shop at the same time.

Posting this because when you tear the interior walls out, you might consider this kind of arrangement. If you dig your own 18 inch deep trench, buy conduit and other materials, you could probably find an electrician to finish it off pretty cheap. It is really nice to have ample power.

Hi, Barb.
Very nice work station. Here in my country a shed like yours, full of tools, does not last a night. It would be a paradise for burglars.

I saw something strange in your DP. BTW, what is the artifact in the right down corner in your last picture?

Not so sure about putting in the electric, Tom. $1500 is a little steep for me to get electric out there. Currently. I'm using a heavy extension cord run to the house. When it's just me out there, not a big deal, but when Ken is with me, I have to keep mindful that I can run only one thing at a time. When the air compressor kicks in, I can count on doing nothing for at least 10 minutes lol But, it's all good. I'm happy to have a roof over my head to work under.
