Moscow, ID 83843
United States

My shop is actually the result of expanding my house. When I purchased my home in 1991 I noticed the area behind my offset, attached garage left an area 13X28. The roof is a hip design so by I extended my roof line I could match the roof line with the garage and enclose that area for a shop. I started by digging a 3’ footer and pouring a concrete foundation to square out the area. With the help from neighbors I poured a concrete floor. Framing the walls was easy but when it came to doing the trusses on a hip roof, and have everything match up, I came to a screeching halt. As luck was on my side I was able to contract a builder who came out, made several measurements and in a 2 days we were trussed up and reroofed. The inside work has been an ongoing project that never seems to get completed. I have continued to make modifications and additions with each new tool I purchase. Sadly, however, there is a limit to what I can do in a 13×28 space. Large projects have to go out into my garage and lumber storage required the building of a shed behind the shop. Some of my tools ended up in the garage, just as long as my wife can get her car inside. Had I the opportunity to do it over, I would move to the country and build a 40×60’ shop with a bedroom and kitchen in the back.

That is a nice looking shop, hope mine turns as nice. It will be older tools to start, but I plan on adding some new ones down the road. I have been thinking about the dust collection, have a few ideas.

Thanks. It may look like I am lurking this week. On vacation visiting, better half wanted to see the grandson before things get worse with this covid thing. Yes we are having fun, but it killing me I could be building the shop. I did bring the plan book and have been able to figure out some of the material orders. And request a quote for the overhead door. And getting some ideas too.

That is so true, never ending process in organization, and what works best for the work flow

The shed though smallish is clean and neat looking well setup Ed.
Damn; I’d love a 40×60 shed too!

One question please!
Whats’s all that white stuff on the roof and around your shed; looks awfully cold.
But then anything under low 40’s “F” is too cold for me.

Crowie, I will list the shed as a project so you can see the construction. I will also post a workshop I assisted in constructing that was 40X60. The owner has since moved so I don’t think he would mind me posting the photos. The white stuff is called snow. A form of water, when you lower the temperature below 32 degrees. This stuff may accumulate to a depth of 18 at one time and over 3 feet in several months time. Its fun to play in.
