Great space. It's the same size as mine. Mine isn't heated though.

Looking forward to seeing pictures.

Lots of room for expanding should you ever need to. I am sure everyone can't wait to see the inside when it's complete.

Added a couple of shop pics that show the peg board, electrical, and air supply that wraps the inside of the shop. Also a couple of shots of my old drill press.

I really like how you've laid out the power and air. Sure wish I had this much space. I'm looking forward to seeing the pics of the finished setup. Nice shop!

Nice Shop Dave! I like the amount of outlets you put in and the air piping is a great idea too. Thanks for the tour.

Hi Dave,

You have a nice shop there with plenty of room and storage. You have some nice tools to play with as well. Your drill press looks like it will do just about any job you ask of it.

Thanks for the tour.

Dave- Great looking shop. I like how you have plenty of hook-ups, Power and air. I often wonder how nice it would be to have those so readily available and only need 10' of leader hose/cord. I like that Drill press too.
Thanks for the tour.
