Smile new to forum

Hi my name is Dan and I am new to the forum. I am looking for floorplans to creat a workshop area. I have had a 20X20 two story building constructed but not sure how to lay out the shop itself. Any direction will be appreciated.

Why don't you layout your building and equipment to scale and start placing them where you think they might be best suited for the work you are going to do? I use the scale of 3/4" = 1' whenever possible. That way, 1/16" will equal 1", and you can figure down to the inch of how much floor space a piece will take up. Your shop floor print will be 15" X 15". A 5 foot work bench will be 3 3/4", etc. You should be able to place your tools exactly where you want them.

Hey Dan, Wish I had some advice for ya on this subject. I have about the same amount of space as you, well maybe a bit smaller (15+15). I'm still trying to figure out how to lay everything out to benefit me the most. I'm getting tired of moving everything when I need to use something particular.
