    The evolving plan.

    I like this layout better. The office as an entryway to the shop just seems to make sense. Is the desk/workstation a unit you already have and want to accommodate? If not, a built in workstation and office plan could gain you some more space. Just my 2.6 cents.

    The workstation pictured is just a placeholder. A custom built in will probably be what I end up with. Right now the only piece of office furniture I have is a small file cabinet.

    Having the exterior door open into the shop seems to limit the usefulness of the floor space. Having it open into the office space seems to not monopolize the space as much. Seems odd, but it works...I think.

    Some time on my hands while I wait for the zoning approval on my storage shed, so I get to play with designs. Here's the latest fine tuning. I added a sharpeing station and reserved some space under the lumber rack for sheet goods.

    Whoopee!!!

    Received the zoning permit for the storage shed today! Once built I can move all the non-shop stuff out of the way and begin improvements in the garage. Time to refine my materials list and wait for Menards to have their next 11% "rebate on everything" sale.

    If you don't have a Menard's CC get one of those first. Buy your stuff and use the card, select 2% back during check out with it. You will get an additional 2% back on those purchases as well. So it is somewhat like 13% off. Just remember to pay off that card
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    will the dust collector be closed in with a door assembly? if so you have less noise but you need to have venting in the room to outside air to help keep heat build up down. and insulation would lessen the noise a lot
