New (temp) Shop - back in the saddle ...

In the same spirit and format of the old e-woodshop.net "shop tour page", the following is an update of the page and pictures of the new, temporary, location/setup:

After 3 months without a shop, it's good to be making sawdust again!

Congratulations. It is always nice to expand and *think* you have more room...but... <G>
May you use in good health and try to avoid staining the walls with pink mist.

Thanks, Rob!
No kidding ... the proposed new shop building, plans of which are finalized, but the building of same basically depends upon the economy, is actually twice this big ... but it is evident that will also be "too damn small for all the "stuff"!
Still ... it's mandatory to have both a current shop, and one to dream about.

Same here. Ain't looking so good right now and I ain't getting any younger.

my current is just under 400 sq.ft., the new one is to be right at 1000 sq.ft. Surely that will be enough, won't it........?

You better believe it. Room for real dust collection, separate closet for air compressor, leaving those shapers set up permanently, a true assembly bench instead of a saw outfeed table, no tripping over hoses and cords, might even be able to sell off some of those mobile bases..................

Back in the saddle, bigger shop, Joat's comment at the end of your pic link, etc,....
Sounds all too familiar. In 2001, I bought the old rent house next door ($4500, Gloat!), with visions of all of the above. In 2002, I had a mild stroke. There went my dreaming. In 2004, I had 2 heart attacks, further disabling my dreams.
I'm happy to report I've had a remarkable recovery. I work much slower, these days, but I'm out there.
In the past year, the old rent house has slowly, but surely, taken shape. I've removed all interior walls and installed beams with 10" to 12" logs as supports.... 1060 sq ft inside, 10 X 24 enclosed garage and 12 X 30 overhang (newly built) in the back. Two sets of double doors accessing the overhang area. New siding on half of the exterior. Hope to get siding on one more side before winter weather gets here. It needs new roofing, especially since Gustav and Ike. This week, I had a vision of hanging a porch swing under the overhang... this winter, that southern sun will be nice shining there.

Yep, about another +/-150 sf ... ....can actually stand in the middle, next to the bench, and swing a dead cat push stick for a change. No new equipment, and amazed at how all that "stuff" has been crammed into a smaller space the past 7 1/2 years?
... still have some patterns/jigs, and additional hardwood stash, to bring over, but there is now almost enough room, inside, for it.
The plan is to eventually (2009?) build a bigger (20x40) shop at the lake house in AR, but first I have to find the time to retire. I think I have it arranged so that the tools can stay in the current location until that happens, meaning one less shop move ... because this one as just about worn me out.

Based on the pictures I have seen of Galveston Island, you could keep building for another century or two.
I assume you don't work that far out of the Houston area ?
20x40 sounds nice but 30x50 with 10' dedicated to a garden shop works pretty well. Don't forget the madame.

Current new residential construction project is about 25 miles this side of Austin ... about a five hour round trip. Right now it's mostly in the bidding stage, so I only go up once or twice a week, but that's soon to change. Plus, I rushed to get this temporary shop up to build the kitchen for that one also. I really enjoy designing them, but then I have to build the damn things ... appears I'll never learn.

"Madame" will have to do with a new bedroom and balcony looking out over the lake, maybe ... in any event, the city girl doesn't "farm", unquote.
