Looking over the list of tools you gave, I’m guessing it will be tight to house them all in the 12×16.

I do like the idea however. I am close to finishing my shed workshop that I started last December. It is a 14×24. I don’t have shed doors but rather a couple old French doors on one end. I found them at the local restore.

The only dust collection I have is a shop vac with a cyclone separator. Not much.

It is tough to get the materials I need right now but I have done fairly well getting some things delivered. I had some treated lumber delivered yesterday for a small deck outside the French doors. Should have that done tomorrow. I need to get in to HD for several items to finish a cabinet project.

Anyway, thought you might want to see a couple pictures of the 14×24 that I am working on so you might can get an idea on the space vs the tools.

The little deck i’m working on will provide more work space when the weather permits. I’ve got the frame built and started laying out the deck planks. Should be able to finish by end of day tomorrow. I figure if I can move my tools outside for some jobs, it will be quite handy. Another LJ showed a deck he built and that is where I got the idea.


All the best with your project.
