Finally have started to expand the tool shed so it will be large enough to start making some sawdust.
Doesn’t look like much right now.

Hopefully in a few weeks it will be enclosed and looking better.
Really tired of not having a dedicated organized area to work on projects . Hopefully this will alleviate
some of those issues.

Hop on over to my blog and follow along with my progress …and set-backs . All suggestions and comments are welcome. I’m kind of learning the carpentry side of things as I go and researching things as I need too. Honestly I am more interested in woodworking and can’t do much of that until I get this expansion wrapped up.

Thanks for stopping by !

I hope everything goes ok and that it all goes off without a hitch. We’ll be wanting to see it when you get it set up.

Ok,lol. It has been a while but I’m keeping my promise. Expansion of the tool shed started about 6 days ago ! I am taking some pics as it progresses. Its not your typical expansion or shop for that matter. Space restraints kind of dictated that I did it the way I’m doing it.

Basically I had built a 10X8 shed a few years ago to house my tools. Not big enough to do much of anything. I had one of those plastic garden sheds butted up against the front but they weren’t really connected. I kept my lawn and garden stuff in the smaller shed and my tools in the other.

Now I am going to use both as a dedicated wood working shop.

I am adding about 4 feet to the shed making it approx. a 10X12 and butting up the other shed to the front . Going to connect it , insulate both,etc. So my total working space will then be around 160 sq. ft. Doubling my space !

Still on the small side but workable. I have already been looking at all kinds of space saving ideas for benches on wheels, tools on wheels and in cabinets, cabinets doing double duty, etc.

Recently added tools .

Ryobi bench top belt and disc sander.

Insulate, insulate, and insulate again. Might consider foil backed 4×8 just under your smart siding? It helps reflecting heat in both directions even though the r value is @ same. Built a 6×12 feeding station which ended up as the kitty motel LOL! Heats with two infa red poultry lamps in MN.

Well, I’m back. Lol. Took a job driving a truck OTR. Was at that for 3 years. Retired in May. I’ll try to update my progress on my shed in the coming weeks.

Right now I’m cleaning it out and insulating it. Most of the structure is complete with the exception of some trim , eave work and some other minor exterior things.

Will try to get some pics up in the coming days.

Have your say...
