Just completed Wood Room addition to Shop (still need to paint it), Inside pics to follow once racks are hung.

1st picture – Outside view of the Wood Room addition to shop….16’ x 10’ used to store wood inside the shop to keep it dry and give additional workspace in the shop. Completed June 21, 2020.

2nd picture – This is what I call the Wood Window that allows me to put boards or sheets of plywood into the Wood Room without having to go through the shop. Window is 5’ wide x 18” tall

3rd picture – Wood Window open showing the rollers I installed to make it easier to put boards and sheet goods into the Wood Room

Good ideas on how to use a wood storage area. Inside rollers are a nice addition. Great job !!! Mel

You are a lucky man. I’ve never had sufficient wood that would warrant a separate building

Looks good. I really like the wood window idea. That’ll sure come in handy

Is it a Man door into the shop space, or a garage door. Overall it’s great to have dedicated wood storage, if you don’t already have a stash, it will tempt you to start collecting one. Plus when you see a killer deal for hardwood, but you need to take all 2,000 bd/ft to get it, you’ll be able to play.

That window is the bomb. Drive up, and start loading.

Enjoy the space.

Thanks Mel, I thought the rollers would come in handle especially for 3/4” sheet goods and 10’ to 12’ hardwood boards.

Thanks DonB – Once I get all the wood moved in there I’ll post some pics. It will be nice to get some workspace back.

Thanks JCamp – I didn’t want a large door, but I wanted something big enough put sheet goods through.

Thanks therealSteveN – there is a 6’ wide x 7’ tall opening from the shop into the wood room, I used to have a 5×3 window on that wall, took the window out and made the opening bigger to make it easier to move boards from the room into the shop and vice versa.
