Workshop Information

Location
United States
My workshop is an old tin pole barn 20×25 with dirt floors (for now) I have been working out of it for about a year and a half. It is a real work in progress but better than nothing! It has changed a lot since I have started working out of it and will continue to change as I have many plans for it. I hope to have concrete, frame up some walls, and new lighting this year.

It needs a little work but that's part of the fun. Have several shop projects on the list as well as more tools to come. But im blessed to have enough space and the basic tools to get some stuff done.

Thats a nice shop with lots of potential. The fun is in making it what you want. The stuggles to get to where you want to go with your shop, makes it that much sweeter when you arrive at your dream shop. Look forward to seeing your future projects and welcome to LJs. There are alot of really good folks on here that are willing to share advice and their knowledge.

Thanks hoss12992 and helluvawreck, I appreciate the kind words. Soon as the weather breaks I plant to start preparing for concrete. I will frame up some walls and run new electrical soon after. That will be such a huge help and really a necessity.

Looks like you have done a great job with that space! That is more space than most hobbyists have and with your planned improvements you will be way ahead of most.

P.S. Roll Tide!
