« Part 5: It's Hot.... Part 6 of The Journey of my Shed Shop series no next part

So when I contacted the shed company I told them I wanted the window up as high as it would go. They did not do that, but are going to schedule and come back out to fix it. I was thinking I wouldn’t want glass to be in the path of sliding boards but now I’m having second thoughts. Might be nice to be able to slide a board out of the window if working on a long piece. Unsure how I will proceed, but need to decide by Monday. Sorry for rotates pictures. Don’t know why it’s coming in that way.

Your shed looks surprisingly like mine. Build a stand out side your window to catch the cut off piece or have you wife stand out there to catch it. Lol

I used the 24” spaces between the studs for shelves.

I had the installer build a rear door where longer boards I cut at the table saw and band saw go through.
I built a pet door in it that I use for my 4” dust hose. I keep a 1hp. collector out there under a tarp when not in use. It hardly rans in So. Ca.

My shed/shop is only 120 sq. ft. I was lucky there’s a 10’ x 12’ slab there from a now removed arbor that it’s built on. How large is yours?

I’m sure you will find ways to make the space efficient.
