The answers to these questions will help you decide if you need to find a new space for the displaced shed items or whether it is smarter and easier to donate them to charity.

Having a really nice workshop seems to be a dream for lots of folks, but workshop design can sometimes be tricky. The bottom line is a workshop in a single story barn would be perfect, but for many of us that is simply not possible.

Do you register cordless tool purchases with the manufacturer more often than with a corded tool purchase? May 13, 2013 by Kristi 11 Comments Over the last few days, I’ve had to turn my attention away from working on my living room, and towards packing up and clearing out the condo. So as I’ve been navigating around boxes and piles of stuff, and stepping over saws and other tools at every turn, can you take a guess what I’ve been dreaming of? Via HouzzOne thing that my space does already have is a beautiful vaulted wood ceiling like the workroom above.

Six Monogram Options For My Dining ChairsHappy Monday, all! It was a busy weekend, so I didn't really get much of anything done on the house.
My Favorite Online Fabric Resources For Home Decor FabricsI've had a few people specifically request this post lately, so I want to share my favorite online fabric resources specifically for home decor fabrics.

Why I Blog (Revisited)Well y'all, I've wanted to write this post for a couple of weeks now, and I just haven't been able to put my thoughts into words until now. Your perfect workshop should not only be attractive, but it should be practical and functional.


Prefabricated sheds don’t come with electricity, but a functional workshop should have accessible lighting and a good power source. If an electrician isn’t in your budget, find a way to power up your workshop, whether it be with a handy tutorial for installing your own wiring or using a generator or other battery operated power source in your backyard shed. Rather than tossing small tools in a drawer, hang them on a pegboard with hooks so you can find them quickly and shelve them quickly when you’re done, making clean up a snap!
Rolling work shelves for extra work surface can be a great advantage if you tend to vary your project sizes. You may want to make your workshop look beautiful, but your work surface will take lots of abuse. Now that you’ve spent all this time making your workshop practical and beautiful, you’ve got to keep it clean! Your workshop is for working so remember to make sure that you’ve got some open space for new projects. As you decide where to relocate your shed items, ask yourself these questions; Do I use these items?
If your books are worth keeping, they should be in your home where they have a better chance of being read. All projects will be easier and more fun with an organized and inspiring environment to work in.
I live with my husband, Matt, our dog, Boo, and our cat, Peeve, in our 1948 fixer upper that I'm remodeling pretty much by myself.
Let me give you 10 great ideas designed to inspire you toward fabricating your perfectly unique workshop.
When you need additional surface for working, you can roll out your extra work shelves and when they are not in use, they can be extra storage space. So far we’ve concentrated on the actual work areas but your floors are important too. If you fill up your workshop with work surfaces and storage closets, you won’t have room to bring in large materials. Right now our shed is half full and contains books, power tools, garden supplies and a few odd pieces of furniture.
If you don’t like this idea, maybe your husband could use his new workshop to build you a potting bench for your gardening supplies?


What none of them realized was I had designed the layout using a 3D model and input from several really good wood workers.
We are building a house, and we put 2? foam board (pink board) on the outside of our poured basement walls before back filling. That isn’t particularly something that appeals to me, but I’m loving all of that storage space!!!
Make a workshop out of your backyard shed that will aid your creative work and allow you to be inspired. Make sure your work surface has enough space on top so that you can work, but also has storage to hold all your tools and supplies. Tools should be kept at easily accessible heights so that you can reach for what you need while you’re working. Add some flowers boxes and even hang up a few pieces of artwork to give your workshop a bit of your own personality.
Making your workshop easy to clean up after each project will ensure that you’ll be raring to go on every new project. For most people the first obstacle is having a space large enough, which is capable of supporting a shop full of power tools.
By using a three-dimensional model I was able to design several options before I ever pounded a single nail. As Anatole France wrote, “Man is so made that he can only find relaxation from one kind of labor by taking up another.
Unlike Norm most of us just don’t have a handy old barn kicking around for a world class workshop.
We are still building the house, so we do not have any insulation or framing on the interior of the basement walls yet.

    Select an out of doors storage shed that probably the most glorious half is definitely suffered.
