    Finally finished some shop cabinets today; completed and hung the doors.

    Those cabinets sure look great! My shop is such a hodgepodge of odds and ends storage solutions – I dream of someday ripping it all out and starting over with actual cabinets.

    Haha yeah, I’m in the same boat kinda, no shop, only a garage, and seems like we keep moving every 6 years approximately, so basically we should start packing up lol

    I actually would love a dedicated shop or garage one day.

    Yeah, I spent a lot of years moving around and never having a dedicated shop. This is the first one I have had ever and I am enjoying it.

    BE the change you want to see.

    That was us too for the first few years we were married. We switched apartments every year until we got to rent a house. That was the first time we had a garage at all and it took me two years before I started using it for building things and slowly started growing my tool collection.

    I know, we have been buying and selling houses for a few years, making a fair amount of money, just would like to eventually slow down and keep one long enough to enjoy it.
    Was fun while we were younger, but as I’m getting older, I think I want to slow it down.
    We’ll see what this year brings.

    Oh boy I know the feeling. I have my shop in the basement of a old house is not great. This is my first and only place. I bought when I was single. Also has changed since then. I didn’t do woodworking when I bought it. Plus I only planned on living here 5 years. I tools have grew over the last 7 years I have been woodworking.

    Hopefully in the next year or so I have garage to make into a better shop. Time will tell. One can only dream.

    Careful the CRA doesn’t kibosh you for the principal residence exemption if you do it too frequently. They’re really starting to track that stuff more now. Since Oct 2016 they now require ANY disposal of residential property to be reported on your tax return.

    Oh God no, we are all under control, we have dealt with the Québec government, and we know what works and doesn’t.
    A few years ago we had 3 frigging properties going, that was extremely hard, thanks for the info Kevin.

    Started with a carport that had a small storage area at the back. Enclosed, insulated, ran wiring to the new enclosed walls.

    The storage room in the back was opened up on one side leaving a small room with a door for the air compressor and some shelves for storage.

    Ran copper air lines down both sides of the shop. Eventually want to add a 50amp outlet outside the shop for welding, and an external air drop on the corner closest to the driveway so I don’t have to haul out the 50′ hose just to fill up a tire or two.

    Sounds like me started with a one car garage and just kept improving and building. More electrical drops, air drops, improved lighting etc.

    That’s a real transformation. Good space for a shop.

    It’s all about functionality… right. 🙂
    Hard to tell for sure, but it seemed like the extra air lines added up to enough storage to lessen the number of times the compressor would kick on.

    That’s a nice size shop. Do you keep a car in there too?

    Nice size shop. Sounds like it’s coming around nicely, I like the idea of the outside airline, that’s practical.

    Now that is the dream right there. That’s a really nice shop you’ve made for yourself!

    Nope, no vehicles allowed (it’s set up as a full functioning woodworking shop).
    Unfortunately, cars were parked in there before it was enclosed, so there are ruts in the asphalt floor. Makes keeping tools aligned a bit of a chore – but it works.

    Ease of access to air is nice – but… there will be a valve just inside the door to control the air in that line. Don’t want to come home to find others ‘getting their free air’ at the expense of my compressor running more than it has to.

    That’s good. I was hoping you’d say that.

    Yeah, that’s a good idea, especially if it is in an area where car’s and people pass by frequently.
