CJC716's Workshop    


,
United States

When we first bought our house we started with a 2.5 car garage with no floor and rotten sill plates. Luckily after 2 years we have been able to get concrete poured and the structure shored up. The walls began to get covered with OSB and ran all new electrical and lighting. It is a work in progress but is starting to come together and hopefully I can get a blog going to track the progress once the weather breaks.

This looks like a great place to work.
I’m jealous! :)
Please keep us up to date with your progress.

Nice work area!
Is that now a dedicated shop or do you share with autos?

You don’t have any insulation that I can see – you don’t need it? I sure wish I didn’t but wouldn’t be able to work at all without it.

Thanks. It is dedicated although we do use the area on the other side of the shop for entertaining in summer months when needed. It is versatile enough though and people don’t mind the machines and parts laying around.

I need insulation for sure as I am in Buffalo,NY but the weather got ahead of me and the far wall in the picture and half of the back wall didn’t get insulation. Put up the OSB so it wasn’t sitting on the concrete or laying in the way over the winter. Once the weather gets a bit warmer I will be able to insulate and hang the drywall on the top half of that side and work on the ceiling. Also using a radiant heater helps to keep me warm enough when I need to be out there. When it is too cold I move inside to my basement bench for any projects I need to finish up. Once it is all set back up in Spring I will upload some better photos.

Thanks for the details, I like the high ceilings as well but that will be tougher to keep heat down – I mounted a small fan under my heater in my shop to move the warm air around and that seems to help.

All the best!
