OK, in the spirit of no pictures, no proof, I offer my re-invented shop.
Once upon a time I lived in Southern California and had a large two-story shop equipped for production jig making, custom furniture building, and teaching. In 2001 I was in a car wreck and my life changed radically. My back is a mess, but I can walk again - no far, not fast, but on my own. That is a good thing!
The bad thing was that I could no longer do what I was doing, and mostly likely would never be able to return to my business. During this recovery time I wrote a book called, "Router Joinery Workshop." Published by Lark Books an distributed worldwide by Sterling Publishing out of New York City. Gloat over.
In 2004, I cleaned out my shop, sold a bunch of stuff, sold my house and moved to the mountains of Arizona. I bought a cute little house on less than a half acre - no shop, no garage, just a house. I had purchased a 20' cargo trailer to assist in the move.
In the first summer, my brother helped me build what now houses my tools and provides space to work.
It is in three parts - a 10' x 12' shed with an attic, a two-car carport, and my cargo trailer.
Part 1 - the little shed
It has a gambrel roof built on pony walls to create some attic space. It has side light windows from a used/surplus place installed horizontally. They provide daylight and make it harder to break in through a window and pass stuff out. I hope!
It also has a basement! The shed is built on a three sided block wall foundation, open in the back. I built hangers to store long wood. Its Arizona. No problem with moisture!
Inside we have access to the attic...
...and lots of drawers.
There is a lot of stuff crammed into this little shed. It is not meant to work in, just to store things. And there is more stuff than these somewhat older pictures reveal.
