Ok, so it's not exactly a "project" but I wanted to keep the idea going. Per HMW's suggestion, let's look at some different shop set ups that are out there. I know I am always looking at better ways to lay things out and other ideas. I'm not above stealing ideas!! SSS
Just as a side note, I would be careful with my pictures and not include too much info as far as specific locations and the like. Too many freaks in the world that would want to "borrow" your stuff

it is obvious that you are a sick, sick man and need therapy.
to have a color scheme other than plain white , and a shop that neet, you need help. I wish I shared the same problem. My shop is that clean once every 3 years. I suffer from scrap-ites. I save scraps incase I need them, and then with the next project I just make more scraps to save.
Where's your scrap bin ??

My shop is in a 16 x 32 building, but the bunker takes up about 3/4 of it, so I just work in one corner and down the side.. not much to look at... but if you must, you can see the shop area, the yard, the front door, and the inside of the bunker from these cams http://jimyo.psend.com/cam2.html and if your still interested, the bunker is at http://jimyo.psend.com/bunker.html yea,,, I am strange... but its fun being that way..

you gotta dig , knock out a wall and expand or just start over then conect the 2 buildings.
i started off with a 12X12 then i knocked out the back wall and added 8X12 more then opend up a side wall to add another 8X12 then i just built a 20X22 thats 2stories high beside it and will conect the 2 this summer i hope. seems like ya always need more space and prity soon after you get it you need more again.
first pic shows out side of both shops, you can see the side addition on the old shop(the green one), there is another addition on the back and the gray steel shop is the new one.
2nd pic is the new shop in construction stage. in the construction pic you should be able to see the 2nd story level its the 2nd cross member and up.thanks for the help
hope i helped
feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. firstname.lastname@example.org
summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.
