Hey all,
Iím about to invest in one of those small sheds to use as a workshop. I donít need a lot of space, I figure a lot of planing and what not can be done outside for the most part. My main concern is noise. Has anyone tried these sheds for a shop, and have any advice on sound proofing to keep from bothering neighbors too much? Would the plastic/Rubbermaid style be better than the metal ones? Could I get something to line the walls with?
Any input or advice would be appreciated
Please and thanks!

Welcome here to this friendly WW forum, where there is always room for one more. Depending on the size of your shed, your planned projects, and how close your neighbors are, there will be contained noise, dust, heat, and cold. Consider a lockable shed, and those larger tools should be movable (in-out on wheels) for usage, which IMO may become a pain to work on any project. As for metal or plastic - metal can be "patched", but plastic never seems to stand up to the elements. Be safe.

Where are you located?

Home depot has a ton of awesome looking wooden pre-fab sheds. I'd get one of those rather than metal or plastic. Might be a little more expensive, but I'd bet the insulation will be way better and they're very customizable!

Best of luck!
