I TRY to keep the shop emptier so I have room to bring things in and work on them, but lately it has been catching a lot of extra stuff. ( I am remodeling a room in the house)

SIGH !!!!! Yes he does, sad to say.

He never asked my permission either. Just went ahead like the impetuous fool he can be at times and scooped it up. :wallbanging: :wallbanging: :wallbanging: :mad2::mad2::mad2:

Our former chicken barn now houses our farm shop in the front 36', as you can see the melt line on the roof, then the rest houses young calves.
Posted Image

This is my "personal shop. I CANNOT store/park/work on my GT's in any of the farm buildings, as Dad doesn't care if he runs over other's stuff at all. Small, the working area is only 22x13', but the small add-on room on the right holds inventory & "stuff" to give me a bit more room.
Posted Image

I later added this shed on the side of my little shop to store my tractors in. It won't hold them all, but the rest fit in the open sided shed I park my Cherokee & F250 in.

Not even close to being as swell as the previous posters, but...

The only pic I can find now is a shot of the mess I had about half way thru the 'remodel'.
What was happening here:
I built the bench on the left side of the pic; I was putting up peg board and plywood all the way around. I built a bench straight back from the pic, under the saw. I replaced the lights shown with 4 bulb suspended ceiling lights, stuck up between the loft joists. It's done for now, but I've got the next round of improvements thought out... just waiting on some cooler weather.

Wow, just having someplace covered would be welcome. I hate working in my driveway. What's a pole cost to put up. Maybe that's my answer.

Our place already had a pole garage when we bought it.
I added a lean-to the full length on the one side.

Posted Image


The front half of the lean-to is for parking the truck and I park the mower in the side garage door.

Posted Image


The front of the garage is for Marie to park her car and I use the side space for storage.

Posted Image


The back of the garage is my workshop.
When I added on the side, I opened it up to include that space also.
There are two sliding doors that close off the back of the garage from front so I can heat the work shop.

Posted Image


We also have a small barn for extra storage.

My shop is 40' x 30" deep,with an attached 20x30 building on one side.

Two oversize (height and width) on the front with two oversize bays. Work space, tool storage and machine shop fit round the back and side. The attached building is my paint booth, with flammable storage on the back (with a blow out wall - "just in case") .

Also have a couple 3 sided out building to park equipment (tractors, golf cart, etc) in.

I need to add on to the shop - running out of work room for multiple projects. I am working on plans to add a section on the back (will cut a door in the wall to get into it). That will house the new wood shop, metal shop, part storage, and a work area. Looking at 20x30 for the addition. But gotta save up some money before I can swing it.

Anyway, here are a couple pictures of the existing shop.
