    Finishing off the Shop Addition

    A few years ago, I added a 20 x 24 cold storage addition to my 20 x 28 shop. Once I sell the old boat, 1966 Thompson deep V with a 40 HP, I will be able to begin finishing the area.

    My main reason for adding this space is area for assembly. My shop is small for assembling cabinets, especially when more than one is in progress.

    The electrical is done, except for a couple of 220 circuits that will have to be relocated when I relocate the cyclone and tablesaw.

    I am in no hurry. I plan to get the stud walls and ceiling insulated before winter. If it is totally done by Spring, I will be happy. Building material prices are definitely in our favor right now. I heat with an outdoor wood boiler, but I dont think this will add that much load.

    I am thinking about tongue and groove pine or shiplap for finishing the walls. The ceiling will definitely be drywall. The walls and ceiling of the old portion are drywall. However, the price of drywall is quite attractive. I just hate finishing drywall.

    Don't finish it. You'll know where all the studs are without measuring, and it's really not offensive once you get used to the grey color.

    Would it cost that much if you hang the sheet-rock & have someone come in & tape it & texture or even have them hang & tape & texture it. Being able to use it that much sooner may be well worth the money.

    That is a good idea.

    I know a few people who might be hungry for business by the time I am ready. They might be willing to deal a little.

    sorry larry! i'm siding with the drywall gang. even if you do nothing with it, you've got a space to run the numbers, or make a quick sketch, without worrying about ruining a paint job.

    I agree. Besides, my wife might frown on having textured finish in the shop and none in the house.

    Yes Rennie your right but you can't see the walls in my shop anyway.

    Of course 13'5" x 24'5" with all the tools storage for tools & lumber rack could explain why there is no empty wall space.

    Stu & I work real hard to out do each other & still have room to work.
