i currently use my brothers garage or my parents porch to build my projects and just curious of the dimensions of everyones shop on here and how well the size worked for them?
Heat the shop with LP fuel and forced air furnace. It is well insulated so not to hard to heat. No air conditioning but have a 12 X 14 over head door that in the summer I just leave it up and it stays nice inside. (Hate them people with well organized and perfectly clean shops and trucks.) (Reminds me of my brother and some others I know.) (I always have intentions of doing that but the road to you know where is paved with good intentions.)
Going back to the post. Doesn’t really matter what size the shop is. If it works for what your using it for it is the right size shop. The bigger the shop usually comes with more expenses. Doesn’t matter the size of the shop or how many tools one has if one doesn’t use them for a purpose. I need a bigger shop partly because I have a Sprinter work van and park it in the shop.
I have a 12'x24' shop it's really tight but manageable. Looking forward to build a larger shop out
back to share with my sons welding equipmet.
Ya welding and wood shop what a mix that will be.
I'm using a two car garage for my building and so far it's big enough for any project I do. Now there is 2 feet taken off the walls for my wifes ceramic molds. and my work bench at one end. I did lay things out so that if I needed to I could pull in a car, as long as I move my portable lath and and portable planner, which I built myself. My table saw is placed in the middle to where I can rip a 8 footer and do not have to raise the door.Thanks for asking. Gary
