The Shop Renovation begins…

My unfinished garage, built by the previous owner of the house, has served as more storage than anything else. Being almost two cars deep I used the front half as my workshop. I decided to undertake finishing it into a decent shop. Like all projects, discoveries along the way led to more work and the project stretched out over the entire summer.

Here’s a few ‘before’ pics….

Original bench nailed to the wall made from some old 2x12s and 2x4s. Plastic hanging from the ceiling from old leaks. Old magnetic ballast fluorescent lights. 80,000 4″ nails coming through the walls from the clowns that did the siding 17 years ago. It was a pit.
