Here are some pics of my shop. It is on the second floor of my barn. It’s roughly 1000 square feet. It has a ten foot ceiling height. Dust collection is located on the lower level of the barn. It’s nice not to have to listen to the dust collector while working. I’m still in the process of getting everything set up. Must say it’s much nicer than my last shop.

Great looking shop Brian. Nice to have all that elbow room. Some cool decorations. I like that bat with the saw blade!

Very nice, curious about your floor treatment, is that painted plywood or something else? Also curious as to why you wouldn’t wire outlets in the floor if you are going to have D/C positioned for specific tools, those draping power cords are certainly better than having cords running across the floor, but if you’ve already run the ducting, why not power? Sorry, don’t mean to be hyper critical, it is a very clean, nice looking shop, I do wish I had that much room myself. Good job.

A nice large well thought out space. Lots of room to maneuver. But how in God’s name do you keep it clean?!!

I was wondering about the floor material (painted plywood?) as well. Would love to have a barn with dust collector and lumber storage underneath. Did you build this yourself?

The floor is 3/4” T&G OSB. The drop down cords seemed like a good idea at the time. The cords do get in the way and I’m planning on running new outlets at the floor.

Very nice space, obviously a lot of thought and work put in to it! Im very curious about your (what looks like) diagonal lumber storage (not sure Ive seen anyone else tackle the age-old horizontal or vertical debate by chosing neither).
