It's hard to have a show shop and a work shop in the same space, Takes a lot of time to keep it nice. I,m working on it.

Funny thing about my place, I live in a square cut log house and one bedroom in a loft. The shop has a mezzanine, about 400 SF with a small sweet open to below. My bro was the first guest to sleep there. At breakfast the after the first night He let me know in special way that I should have shut of the compressor, a very loud IR.

My shop is 50' x 50' with a 18' canopy on the front.
I build it in stages. I started in Jan 2005. First was a 30' x 50', and then I added 20' x 50' onto the back with a bathroom and 16' x 20' storage area. I moved all my welding equipment to the back room.
Added air conditioner. Got to have a cool place to work in the summer.
Next was the 18' x 50' canopy which I should have build years before. Great place to park in the shade and out of the rain. Sometime I work on a car or truck under the canopy.

I have a lot of tools I have accumulated over the last 50 years. Lathe, bead blasting cabinet, welding tables, Mig, Tig and stick machines. sheetmetal breaks, press, tools tools tools, I love tools.

I sweep once a week and blow the shelves and wall with a leaf blower or air hose. But the shop is never really clean. That would be a full time job.

I have one dealer tag from the sixty's, Mullin's Ford, local dealer when I was in high school. The from the 50's. The Sikeston Ford is in Missouri dealer still in business. I think this is a tag from the late 50's - early 60's.

This is my "Build Garage." I am fortunate to have a room in another building I call my "Dirty Room," where I do most of my grinding, polishing, drilling, sanding, etc, with an exhaust fan to the outside. The carpet is a Home Depot low-pile that makes a nice work surface and is easy to just vacuum clean, or throw away every couple of years when it gets too bad, at a cost of about $60. Floors are Epoxy. The cabinets are Baldhead, with tool drawers and pull-out storage bins......all metal and powder-coated. Big screen TV to watch F1 races and other sports while working on my projects, soundsystem, kegerator, and even urinal......and of course a chair for the dog.........Works for me...
