NO! It'll take that long before I can see heading your way to mess your's up worse!

In all fairness,my shop usually does not look this clean.I have a 16' x 48' upstairs that could use a little cleaning also.

 

 

Just think of the stuff that you will find that you thought you never had.

Looking good Kenney. I didn't realize from your past projects your place was as large. Since being in the process of moving my place is a disaster. I like the idea of you showing your shop organization...we all don't do it enough. Keep us posted on your shop.

It's not the issue of finding stuff I didn't think I had, it's finding what I know I do have!

I have block walls too, I put plywood or 2xs on the wall with the blue screws and some construction adhesive. Then I can mount what I want and not worry about the screws failing.

Can't do that now, Tom! Most of the cabinets I have on the walls are mounted on 2 X 4's that are attached to the walls with the blue screws.

I though that was a normal operating area until I cleaned mine up, took days to get it straight, then I couldn't  find anything now its back to normal.

Before my boys got older and into sports, my garage was immaculate. I could work in it and if I needed to I could roll my equipment out of the way and get two cars in it. It was a delicate balance and one car had to be backed in with the passenger side inches away from my miter saw bench, but it worked. Now it's chaos. Every couple of years I completely empty it and get it semi-straight. I did learn I can't do that on a Saturday. People started stopping because they thought I was having a yard sale. I like cabinets. I built a bank of upper cabinets along the back wall of my garage. It's not that expensive if you do it a little at a time. It helps keep your stuff clean and also keeps it from prying eyes.

Kenny, your shop looks lived in that's for sure. I'm always amazed at how long it takes to clean up my work area, either in the basement or the garage. It gets into a real mess with piles of stuff all over the place and then I finally get fed up and clean it. Takes a long time to put everything away. Then the process starts all over again. It seems like I'm forever building shelves and trying to re organize stuff.

It is lived in, Brian. I spend 5-7 hours a day out there during the Spring to Fall time period. I have lots more to go through, lots to get rid of as it is of no use anymore. Old lock sets, door hinges, outlets and switches that we had saved back for 'repairs'. Just a bunch of odds and ends. Time to cut that stuff loose!

Looks like you're making lots of progress! I've been working on mine when I can since it warmed up outside and threads like this are good motivaters! Keep up the good work and keep us updated on your progress.

I'm getting at a loss of wall space now. Time to clear things on shelving. Need to get my Red cart out and clear it so I can stack 'new stuff' on it! LOL!

Cleared the cart and sure enough found some things to throw on it. Moved a few things around and swept some more. No pics as it doesn't really show that much different.

I just went through the same thing.  Had to combine my wood working shop with my main shop.  Of course about the time we decide to get started on the move I get work in. :wallbanging:   But it all worked out. 

 

Here are a few pics I took today.  I have basically everything in place but I'm sure I will be tweaking as I go along.

Eventually we will draw the out line of the tool in black against the white background and label the size so I can do a quick inventory to see if anything is missing.

I found that sign and thought it appropriate for the shop.

 

 The garage is 20' X20' inside. Added the 12' X 20' 'tractor port on the front. So about a 32' deep X 20' wide work area under roof.

The Attack Turtle sign would be a hoot on the bathroom door!!

 

Here's one of my shop when I was operating on the Neighbor's 1938 A/C 'C".  Seems he blew a head gasket last week so another appointment will be in the future..
