I have been looking at all the shops on here and decided I might as well show a few pictures of mine, ( my man cave SHOP as friends call it ). The size of my shop is 16 X 28 feet. I have everything set on mobile bases of some sort so I can move anything, anywhere in the shop when extra space is needed. It has cooling/heating, small fridge, coffee maker and other perks. I have just about all the power tools I would need except a jointer, which I have gotten along without so far. All the cabinets are filled with hand power tools/hand tools. I have nine, 4 foot LED lights installed where they would do me the best, plus individual lights that can be moved where needed. I have 17 electric outlets around the walls with six of them in the ceiling. Around half are 20amp, with the rest at 15 amps. All my big power tools have there own circuit that way. Walls and ceiling are insulated pretty good, so any weather isn’t a problem. Instead of having a complete enclosed ceiling, I left approx. half open for overhead storage, and a ceiling fan. Most of my big power tools have fitted camo covers on them to keep them cleaner when using the others, ( thanks to my wife’s sewing ).

Very nice, great organization and tools…looks like a great place to hang out, but you need a couple stools to sit in and have an adult beverage after the machines get shut off!

Looks like a lot of firepower in a small footprint. Mobility allows you to get er done.

Nice look, thanks for posting.
