In this video I show how the little shop is set up so far and take a peek at the empty-ish shed. I have most of my things moved from the little shed to the new shop, but organizing will be a forever process so I put stuff in places and just started working on some projects!!! I also had a visitor recently, Andrew from Heavyboxes DIY Master; we have a collaboration video coming out soon. While Andrew was here, we invited Linn and her hubby from Darbin Orvar, and we all had dinner together, and it was a great time!
I have lots of projects in the works, yay!!!!

This is the final video in the shop project series! The little Oregon shop is not completely done, we have some little things to do including trim work and paint, but it is done enough! We really love that we added a deck to it. The whole idea of the deck is so I can pull the sander out there and sand outside. This should keep the dust amount down inside the shop. I already have all of the tools from the shed moved into the shop and have a project in full swing!!! I’ve shifted things around and rolled the large equipment into the guest room to see how that works, and it is fantastic!!! This leaves plenty of room in the shop to work on other things while I am not using those big tools!
We are continuing to work on the shop! We put up the siding and put in the big side door! We talked about having a concrete ramp at the new door, but have decided a deck would be better! This little shop keeps getting more and more complex! It’s been fun saying what if we do this…and then doing it! We should have things completed soon, but for now here is Part 7, putting up the siding and making the big door. Part 8 is coming soon. 🙂
Since we have done so much to the back room we decided to add flooring to it. It went really fast putting this flooring in and then we were ready to put together the Murphy Bed. We had to do some adjusting of brackets and make some notches so the feet would extend fully, but we got it done! Now I have a room to keep my rollable tools, and a place for guests to sleep! Now to finish the rest of the shop!
We focused on the back room, getting the OSB boards up, the cedar ceiling up, insulation in the ceiling, pine tongue and groove boards on the walls, and getting a finish applied to the walls and ceiling! Husband also hooked up the electrical and put the lights up in both rooms. This back room does not look like a shop!
We are going to make the east end of the shop into a spare bedroom, sort of. We are going to put a murphy bed in there and leave it folded up so we can keep our big tools that are on wheels out of the working area of the shop. This makes the new shop working area really just 120 square feet, but that is just fine!!! Husband got all the wiring done and I got the insulation put up on the walls!!!
A lot got done on the shop!!! Husband framed in the windows and door. He closed in the open parts on the ends below the roof arch. I helped with the wrap around the entire shop, then with cutting the wrap for the windows and door. Then we got the two windows in and the door! Now it is all closed in from the rain and wind! It is coming right along!!! Yahoooo!!!
We had a few weeks of chilly weather, then Husband got a cold, then I got it. So working on the shop was delayed for a few weeks, but then we both felt better and the weather was perfect! In this video we got the walls up and the roof on, shingles and all! It is so exciting to see it coming together!!!
