My shop is in a 32 x 48 x 10 polebarn with vinyl siding, aluminum soffits and facia, shingled roof it is insulated and I used o.s.b. sheathing for the interior walls and ceiling. A lot of my shop was built using left over materials from other shops and homes that I built or remodeled....for example my windows all came from a home I remodeled, the kitchen upper cabinets came out of two different kitchens I did, and the trusses came from a house we completely changed from a single story ranch to a two story home with completely different rooflines. Insulation came in dribs and drabs as I had leftovers as did the interior o.s.b sheeting. It's not that I am cheap but am able to obtain these materials from time to time being a building contractor. My shop was originally built so that I could pre-fab trusses and walls for my different jobs, but it didn't work out the way I planned it...so I started building a few muscle cars in it....after I got enough of that hobby about 2 years ago I decided to turn my shop into a place where I could build furniture and cabinets for some of the houses I built if the customer decided to have something custom made....so I sold/ gave away all my go fast car goodies and made the conversion.
Although my shop is nothing fancy and it doesn't have the "top of the line" equiptment, it serves me well and of course I am always looking to upgrade as time/funds allow. Not pictured below I have a Grizzly dust collector, a homemade ceiling mounted air filter, a large homemade clamp rack, an older delta jointer, a newly purchased drum sander....and a refrigerator to keep my beverage of choice cold after working hours.
Thanks for looking and be careful not to get too much sawdust on you.If you ever get near Lansing, Michigan drop by, the drinks are cold, the shop is warm and the conversation is sincere and friendly.
