Be honest - that really isn't a shop. Your wife won't let you back in the house anymore will she? LOL

 

 

 

Shop looks great.

She is waiting for me to clear the old shop so she can have it. This may take a while to decide what moves, and what I need to get rid of. A second store bought storage may be needed. And she didn't seem to have a issue with my thoughts of adding a funnel urinal in the corner, so I don't need to go out to the corner, to view the Big Dipper.

that is what I am shooting for. my next decision is whether to use the window for an air conditioner, or cut a dedicated opening for it.

 

I would go dedicated myself.

I may do the window unit first, I don't want to open another can of worms with water leakage.

Larry, keep your eyes open on Craigslist for one of these.

I picked my up used for. $300. You can't even hear the blower unit when it's on.

Very energy efficient as well. Might cost more then a cheapie window unit, but the savings on electric add up. Many are also heat pumps as well.

I would only use the A/C - Heat while I am in here, couple hours a week and 16 hours a weekend.

It's a Sanyo split AC system. Mine is 12,000 BTU both the compressor and blower unit run on one 20 amp 230 volt circuit. They come in many configurations.

My garage/shop is 28x42x12 but it's very well insulated and drywalled. The unit works well unless it's real hot for extended periods of time.

I had a 28,000 btu window unit in my last garage, the noise drove me nuts. I'm very glad I went with this type this time.

mine is a 24X18X12 and being used to no ac in the old shop the 5k unit should suffice. knowing I can upgrade later if needed. thanks.

Wall insulation is done, and I picked up some plumbing for the sink. 4 more roof panels 8 plywood panels and 8 more trim and I can start on the benches.

Oh, I also rode out a small hail storm in here this morning.

Pluming is almost done. Need more plywood to make a door for under the cabinet. Tested tonight, and use a gallon jug to flush. Works great,

Nice shop. Those split heat pump units make a really nice addition to a shop. If you know anyone who installs them they may have older units that they take on trade and can sell for a good price. You get heat or A/C out of them and it is a permanent install so no messing with installing and removing them every year.
