« Part 5: Smoother Joy Part 6 of Fix up the shop series Part 7: Divider Wall; electrical and sheet rock »

I have a 3 car garage. My absolutely wonderful wife has agreed to my turning the two car garage into a wood shop. I am building a wall between the one car garage and the two. My son had a lull in his contracting business and gave me a bunch of help. Studs are up. Electrical s 80% done. Now we’re putting up the drywall. Pretty soon, it will be a shop!!

Good luck with the project. I have the same set up. I can roll everything to one bay so we can get my pickup and her car in , if a hurricane should approach. I did put in a split a/c system and recommend that highly if you can do it.

You have yourself a keeper. Sounds like you owe her a night out on the town.

Good luck on your project, and make more sawdust.

This is bound to be a great shop Rob. I hope you will post some nice photos of it when you are finished.
