    Here is a video slideshow of the building of my new shop during the last year. It is compact, but just fine for the construction of miniature engines!

    That looks nice and cozy! Looks like a first rate job as well! I love the loft, great use of space.

    Very nice. You must have enjoyed building a retreat where you can be surrounded by your toys/tools and be comfortable. I noticed what looked like a marine (sailboat) cabin heater on one wall. Hopefully it will provide sufficient heat. I know that they are effective on a boat to keep the cabin air dry.

    I recently completed a similar project and to deal with harsh winter conditions I insulated the walls and used steel barn tin to line the interior walls and ceiling. My shop is now cooler in summer and warmer in winter.

    I agree with your diagonal placement of the mill in a corner. It's an effective use of precious space.

    Congrats and let us know when the Shed Warming celebration is scheduled.

    That is one nice little shop there, someday maybe I will be so lucky! We have a joke int he shop at work that the perfect retirement home would be 500 square feet with a 50,000 square foot shop attached. One can dream. Here though it looks like a dream come true.

    As for the second story / loft area do you have specific plans for that area. I looks like the perfect place to put Air compressors, HVAC, and other equipment that can clutter up a shop floor. My "shop" is in the basement at the moment and thus have plenty of experience with other things cluttering up the work place.
