Here's a few shots of the shop as far as I have gotten towards getting the equipment in:
There's still some stuff to get out like the scaffolding.

This is the corner I hope to put the Mustard Monster:

I made a workbench from an old platform bed that has drawers on both sides. I put legs and wheels on it for mobility.

All of the outlets are at a reachable height and numbered with matching numbers in the circuit box.
15.5' x 27.5' interior space.

I guess that's all for now. Getting antsy to get it done!! Thumbs Up

Did you figure out the heat source for next winter Ralph?  Are there any dust shields on the ceiling lights?

Buck, Yes. I decided to just go with the Mr. Heater I originally had.

On first read, it said that it needed a 7' clearance under it which is kinda hard when the ceiling is that high. A deeper read says that that clearance is for when it is being put in a garage so a vehicle won't hit it.

Hope to get it hung  in the next couple of weeks. The gas people will come out later this summer to run gas line from the house to  the shop.

No dust covers on the lights but metal guards to stop accidentally hitting the light and breaking bulbs.
I'll look into dust covers, tho.
Lights aren't hard wired in so i can replace them if they fail or if the price of LED's come WAAAAY down.

Sounds good Ralph, If you get your heat and a back up mattress for your work bench your preparing yourself to get snowed into the shop this winter  Smiley

You forgot the mini fridge!! Grin Grin
That made me decide to add a mini  fridge to the list of "stuff" I need to buy for the shop.

The "workbench" was supposed to go upstairs into the spare bedroom of the house but quickly found that it wouldn't fit up  the stairs.... but only AFTER I had already gotten the drawers, the headboard and the mattress up there!
On the plus side, it was given to me so a freebie is a freebie!

I'd like to build a  causeway of sorts from the back door of the house to the shop door so I don't have to keep clearing snow just to go play.


This is far as i got last winter:

Consider getting the clear plastic tube sleeves for the tubees above the lathe. DAMHIKT,  Undecided Sure gives one piece of mind when turning suspect FOG. I don't mind having the tube go out on impact with small flying object just hate the glistening shower. You can never be sure where the shards end up. Plastic tubes are cheap and effective.
Great looking shop soon to be filled with shavings. Thumbs Up

"clear plastic tube sleeves " Excellent idea. I will be getting some today ! I would only offer this : Wood absorbs a lot of light and reflects a low range color. That pine will surely darken with age ( though some water pollies do block the UV's). I  found that the lighting in my shop ( built in '85) was fine for 25 years and started down hill after that. Approaching 65, I now have little Ikea flex lights on everything.

Well, i got the gas run out the heater and the elec. is all done, so the only thing stopping me from loading the place with my tools and a butt load of wood is finding the time!!

I'm so swamped in the store this season, I barely have time to run to the store for  more cat food!!  Shocked Shocked

RULE #1: NEVER RUN OUT OF CAT FOOD!!!
RULE #2 SEE RULE #1!
