« Part 3: Finally able to enjoy the shop Part 4 of New Workshop series no next part

Well, it has been almost a year since we moved into the new house, so I thought it was time for an update. I have moved around a few things, just for better flow, and am starting to get into the groove now. I am still undecided as to what to do with the walls, but I will figure it out eventually.

I used 1/2” OSB sheeting for the walls in my shop. Its inexpensive, can be painted (mine will be painted soon), and you can hang just about anything anyplace.

The shop is looking good. But, I must admit, the easy chair is what got my attention!.

I, too, used OSB on my shop walls and painted it. I put the rough side away from the room. Looks like you would have a tough time doing that now as you have a lot of stuff on the walls that would have to come down first.

Very nice shop.
Just curious whether you’re comfortable with the space now. Wish you enjoy working in this shop.

Nice shop.
Have you covered the insulation in the ceiling yet? Otherwise I strongly recommend you to do that. The insulation is releasing tiny parts that end up in your lungs.

What a great looking shop. I see lots of nice and interesting things and it looks pretty big as well. How large is it?. Congratulations on a job well done.

The front part when you walk in to the shop is 11ft x 12ft. The main work area where the bench is located is 14ft x 20ft.
