« Part 2: Finishing the lofts and starting the walls and lights Part 3 of Double Workshop Build Blog series no next part

We are taking two 1 1/2 car garages and renovating them to become two workshops. One will be full of the best commercially made machines we can get, the other will be all homemade machines. And we’re filming the whole process for a weekly blog. The videos will be short, but full of good ideas you can use in your own shop.

When you are done you can come to my place and put up a nice work shop for me and film the whole thing too. :)

Good for you for preserving the history of the buildings. It’s important to preserve the connections to the people and places of our past.

Some years ago I found an Indian head penny under a window sill, which I lost in a chess game then won it back. It’s still in my kitchen drawer. I like to think I’m helping preserve a bit of history but really, I just like the penny—it’s almost as cool as that hundred+ year old siding. The shops are looking great!

I disagree with with the “floor mats” in a woodshop or in your case a studio. I say get the proper shoes; maybe some professional inserts. I’m Mike’s age and with proper shoes on concrete all day long ( also in the classroom).
Q: The house that you stripped ( at 1st I wasn’t sure if you and Mike were in Pontiac getting aluminum siding) of the ‘boards” Is this your current house. The reason that I ask is; it doesn’t look like the house where Chip got hosed down by Mike. ( I know it was water; you said- but we haven’t about Chip, McNugget, Puddles, Joy, Randy, and … )
Your episodes are “bomb”; even better than the series “Lost” ( ie the tattoo )

The house in the video is actually my house, and the location of the workshop in most of the videos. The house where Chip got sprayed was Mustache Mike’s (where Chip lives). They actually moved last year to a different house, which is the location of the second workshop in the video- what will become the “homemade tool” shop.
