As this is my first blog here I wanted to say I love this site. I have found a lot of great information on here and the netizens appear to be very helpful. I thought I’d post a little blog about my experience this year with building a home woodworking workshop. Maybe my experiences will help someone else doing a similar project.
My wife and I recently moved into a new house. This house has a crawlspace instead of a basement. It also had a 2 car garage (20’x20’). I thought I would take half the garage and use that as my workshop space, but I could see that I would be really unhappy with the result. So we settled on a new solution. Adjacent to the garage is a patio. It has a concrete slab, and a roof overhead. My idea was to enclose it and turn that area into my new workshop. So the project was born.
Some of my early decisions were:
- I wanted to do all the work myself
- Get it done before winter!
Over the next few days I’ll post my progress from the beginning to the present day. But since this project is not quite completed yet, I have to get out there and get some work done.
Thanks for reading.
