I've been cleaning mine a bit at a time for a couple of weeks. This includes a fair bit of carpentry, as I've been building boxes for tools and accessories, made the large doors operational again, put a new top on one of the work benches etc.. So far there's been one trip to the dump and there's going to be a pretty big bonfire this weekend.

Yesterday I got it clean enough to realize that the highly questionable floor has become a little dangerous. I don't want to fix the concrete, being that I'm not insane, so I guess in the spring I'll lay down some rock.

Well, now that you have your place all cleaned up, you can come over and start on mine! At least you were able to get in the building. :wallbanging:

The shop is looking really good! I need to find some of those nice deep drawers that you have! Of course, then I'd have to find a place to put them...

5 years I've been talking about cleaning this shop up. This is the year. 2017 is it, I can feel it. I started with one wall. I want to put a ceiling in so I can a/c it this summer.

One wall is a start. I've gotten into some woodworking and need a cleaner work space.

Wall up and first coat of paint on one way and one corner. I used 3/8" plywood on this wall. This is going to be where my main work bench is so most of it will be covered. I think I'm going thicker on the more exposed walls.

Painting the walls sure will brighten your shop a lot.  Can't have too much light in there.

As you guys may remember I bought this shop 1 year ago.I reorganized it to my liking and was doing a lot of things up there,Now it just sits for the most part and gets filled up with more projects.Time has not been on my side for quite awhile.I finally started to work on some of those projects a few days ago ,got the horse drawn plow painted now its for sale and can go to the house till it sells.Next is the Bolens 1220,I am fitting a blade to the front then it is going to the house(todays project)I need to get the shop cleaned up because the wifey wants to have a rummage sale in it!!!!Then my old truck is finally gettin its" restore" Gonna tear it down to the frame and fix everything add some new body parts ,some go fast and loud parts and a paint job.I am lookin forward to that!The gold wing lives there so I need to find a better spot for it to sit.And the last pics are of my old shop at the house ,It needs to be cleaned up to .Most of the tractors live there,Only one there now is the jd 110,nothing else will fit.Mowing season will start for me in a couple weeks and I have all my mowing jobs back from last year so I need the shop cleaned out for mower service too,I have always had a problem accumulating things but I think my "problem" may have stepped up a little,Time to purge some of this

Yes and I plan on adding a couple more lights. I am thinking about the led shop lights. I'm pretty much now to the point were I can't find anything. I do have to 2 red cabinets mounted and have a shelf I'll go ahead and put where it goes. I've got to get the John deere running to mow but can't even really get to it.

April first resolution is to follow your lead..... get my shop cleaned up! As the weather improves I should be able to get at it before the garden needs all my attention.  Yeah, right, lol. But I will try.

I think that time has already come and gone my friend. Lol

I got a couple things up. The black shelf doesn't go there. I think it will be awesome. I can't belive how much plywood cost these days.
