    Looking good, Randy. What's the framed-out room gonna be?

    I didn't know you were a fellow member of the TS3650 club.

    Not sure but my wife keeps asking me the same thing. I keep telling her I dont have all the tools I need yet to do anything.

    I have my regular clamp rack in the garage that I'll bring down once I get finished. That beam does come in handy though. Not sure I could get away with saying that I need to feel in the empty space with more clamps.

    Its going to be my shop. The TS3650 has definitely been a nice purchase.

    Its nothing like yours, but I did get inspiration from watching you build it. The good thing is I think I'll beat Ned's build time.

    Thanks for everybody's comments.

    like that would be tough? Besides, you cheated... you started with walls and a ceiling already.

    The Beginning

    This is how it started.

    The area I claimed starts just to the left of the window to the inset in the middle.



    This is looking down into the shop area. The inset I framed out with a door and will eventually put a dc in here.



    Here is a shot similar to the first one but with the floor joist down.



    The nice thing about having the shop in the basement is ours is a walkout. Very nice entrance to bring things in and out.



    Here it is about 10 days before we closed on the house. The only thing that changed from this shot was the insulation was completed on the wall.



    Thanks for looking.

    Randy
