Here you can't have a refillable tank in the dwelling
any time any where.
You are not supposed to store them in the garage
if it is attached to the house.
They can be in a storage building, but not a work
shop.

Hey All,

I am lacking in pictures for now but hopefully soon. As I mentioned in an earlier post I am upgrading to a bigger shop, had a 10x14 shed and now building an 18x20. Well, it's finally happening, the old shed and pad are gone and the concrete guys will hopefully be pouring the new pad today. As with all projects we have hit snags in that the yard has a lot steaper slope than anyone realized so they are going to have to remove about 8" of dirt from the south end so the pad doesn't end up 24" thick on the north. SIGH!

Anyhow, I am giddy as a school girl and wanted to share. As soon as I have something besides a bunch of dirt to take pictures of I will share.

Thats one thing I have to double check on for our area, I believe we can have them and since the garage is detached and sets about 30' away from the house I should be ok but will be double checking.

The heater I got for free as an older farmer had just upgraded their house and they didn't need the unit anymore. So instead of tossing it they were just giving it away. It's about 4'w x 3.5'H and is designed to heat an entire house. I know that wood and corn stoves are legal in my area so if I can't use the heater then I'll see if I can find one of those. A friend of mine told me about some radiant heaters his dad just got for his shop so I'll look into that too.

I do agree, there are a lot of cabinets and I may not actually have that many after a few more revisions but I decided to go with the amount I have now as to help keep clutter from building up like it is now in the garage.

The one thing the drawing doesn't show is the attic, we'll be refinishing it as well to use as storage. this is where I plan to put the majority of stuff, tubs full of kids clothes, seasonal items, ect. I actually got to see the floor for about a month this summer then the GF covered it up. We also have a shed that was built and attached on the W side that I'll also convert into storing the yard tools. And on the other side of that was what I guess was chicken coops. That I'm going to redo into either a kiln to help dry the wood or wood storage and build a separate kiln as it is actually facing the wrong way if I want to follow the direction from here. http://www.woodmagazine.com/dgroups/...Id=personaDest.

Hopefully this weekend I'll get some pics of the current state for the "before & after" effect.

My guess is clamping area. See the clamps next to it?

If you're refering to my drawing, most of the items (like the work benches, table saw, drill press and others are mostly place holders. I don't have those items yet so I'm sort of forecasting for the future.

Right now I will mostly focus on storage and a place to put my existing tools such as the miter and scroll saw. the benches will play a major roll as they will provide me work space and storage options. There are a lot of cabinets show and I probably won't have that many, again, trying to maximize storage space.

The image I posted was the first in what sill be several renditions of the floor plan. As I go, I notice something each time that I missed before such as peg board items. I think once I can get the actual dimensions of the garage itself I'll be better able to allocate space properly.

I am slightly embarrased to show pics of my shop with so many great looking shops around here. Here are a few shots of my shop that has many uses as evidenced by the clutter and wide array of tools etc. Much of the tools are in some cabinets I made from plywood and a set of drawers. The shop is approximately 10x20 and is just a portion of the garage really.



You can see the immense mess there nicely. I have been remodeling our home for some time now and the trim work has had me keeping a dirty garage. I did some major renovation. Maybe I will show some shots in another thread.





Inside the 48 inch cabinet.


I plan on upgrading and changing a few things in the next few months. I will post some updated shots when I do.

It looks like you're using the space you have available to do what you need to do. The cabinets and drawers seem to be serving you well. Any shop that is being used will have some clutter.

Hey Skeater, It's always fun to work on a project like that. I finished my new shop a little over a year ago. It's 20'x35' and I love it. I did most of the work myself, I had help with the concrete, and my neighbor and his dad ran the wiring for me, other than that it was me and some help from LOML. It is all insulated and sheetrocked, with plenty of outlets to plug in anything I could ever want. The best part was it only cost me just under $13,000 for the whole build. I thought I did pretty good.

I would like to have built this myself but I have never done any construction and have little time to put in to it. I am going to finish the inside and do the wiring myself (with the exception of running from house to the building). I thought about sheet rock but decided on wafer board, it's a bit cheaper and will hold a screw better without having to find a stud. It will be insulated and someday, after recouping the cost of the build, I want to see about solar power to run everything.

I know what you mean about time. There is just not enough hours in the day here lately. I wasn't as busy when I built the shop so I had time. I spent the weekends and everyday after work working on it. I started on it on Memorial weekend and finished it around Labor day. I also saved a lot of $$$ by doing it myself. Before I had started building I had told my wife I wanted to get back into construction, I think that is why she gave me the green light to build a new shop. I got over that bug by the time I was finished, and decided to stay doing what I am doing.

Nothing like a big project to kill your enthusiasm.

I keep threatening to make a t-shirt and I need to get it done, it will simply say "I have never been so busy as when I settled down"

Shop Remodel

New bench. Was an old counter at the county attorney's office. There were just open bays. I filled them with 22 drawers and 2 pull out shelves.
It's orange because I bought it for our kitchen and LOML said "NO WAY!"

Well, it seems to have taken an eternity but it's finally done. The shell anyway, now I have to do my part and finish the inside. Then maybe I can make some stuff.

Does this mean that your dust is blown outside? I like it! I wonder if I could get away with that.
