    Personally, I think it's sad you are blocking of the attic and putting a dropped ceiling. I think it would be dope to have access to the attic from the inside and have lights to mix with the main room and not have another one room low ceiling. Again PERSONAL OPINION.

    Will the camera guy also be moving to the new house/shop or will he be filming for the new owners?

    Nice to hear about your vision for your new shop. It will be nice to see it finished and you working in there. I do have to say that I think you are a bit crazy with your design, but to each there own. Best of luck, hope it turns out exactly how you want it.

    David, since you are putting in a drop ceiling I'd suggest (as I did to Bob) that you look at the light mount brackets for drop ceilings. By putting in a drop ceiling you are putting a lighting grid up! Check it:

    I really like the layout it will be fun getting to set it up. I am moving too so these videos are great information. I also have to disagree on the carpet. Had a friend that did that in his basement, the fibers in the carpet will snag the wood, not to mention liquid spills. I have been using these 27" square rubber tiles for about three years and my new shop will also have them. They are about 1/4" thick and weigh about ten pounds each. Heavy objects do not even leave a mark. Waterproof, more insulation, don't move and are easy to mop or vacuum. Can't wait to see more videos!

    Excited for you, Dave! It's going to be fun and inspiring to watch you put together your dream shop.

    That's going to be a great looking shop! Thanks for giving us the tour. Although if that was in the UK that'd be known as a 3-4 car garage. That space is huge!

    I can understand what you are saying about removing the big garage door. Most projects will go through a 36" door, but you may have some trouble with machinery going though it. You may want to replace the 36" door with a set of french doors or something similair that will give you a bit more room. Sounds like it will be a very nice shop can't wait to see it when you are finished.

    Awesome David! I'm so excited to see this shop come together. I like the concept. You've obviously put the time in figuring out what works for your specific needs – and best of all you're following through. Thanks for keeping us all inspired! What happens when you inevitability want to build a boat?

    The carpet doesn't sound crazy at all. I am in IT and when my company moved into a larger facility, I put down the squares of carpet that you're talking about in my server room. I've had no issues with dust and it made a BIG difference in how loud it is in there! Can't wait to see the new shop up and running man

    Congratulations! Having a detached garage as a shop myself, I would like to make a couple of suggestions:
    1. Sacrifice the floor space and add a 1/2 bath with a deep sink- you will never regret it!
    2. Make sure your drop ceiling height is well over 8ft so you aren't scarring your ceiling or damaging your wood when using 8ft sheets or boards
    3. Mount all of your individual free standing tools on mover's dollies (Harbor Freight and Rural King both have them) so that they are mobile. You'll be amazed how much easier it is to tune up your work flow, rearrange your floor plan, etc.
    4. Didn't see it in your video but your present plan has power tools in the center of the floor. My suggestion regarding this is to have at least 3 quads strategically placed in your ceiling.

    Enjoy your new home (and house too!)

    the lights need to start closer to the wall.^
    like 2 ft to wall, 4 ft between light.
    not 4 ft wall to light, and 4 ft between lights.

    I like the new ideas for the shop. I would say its more like a lab than a shop which I like. Good luck. Maybe put the dust collection in the attic and then have blast gates that come down from the ceiling.

    Enjoyable video. Congrats on the new shop. When I was looking to move, a three car garage was mandatory so one bay could be used for woodworking. By the way, I was moving from a one bedroom condo that was 680 square feet.

    moving out of the basement and a bigger shop . . . life is good :>) FYI, I have an alternative suggestion for how to deal with the garage door. I just made a video (inspired by you) about that alternative if you are interested. can't wait to see your shop at move in, they're never finished.

    Someone my have already suggest it but you could run all the ducting for dust collection above the drop ceiling

  33. Jeffery Nichols

    Looking forward to see this new shop. Tip.. What ever acoustical ceiling tile you use. Make sure to store some extra panels. Predicting you're going to be hitting them with wood and tools here and there. And I like the idea of the extra space being used to store the wood. And thanks for the tip on the electrical set up. 1 side for tools, the other for dust collection.

  34. Dale Weinke

    Great idea with a subpanel, this way in the future if you get a tool that runs on 220 you can hook it up to the subpanel. I did the same thing to my shop 6 years ago, because 8 outlets and 9 lights all hooked up to 20 amp breaker trips the breaker alot.
    Sounds like you have a good well thought out game plan for your new shop. Good luck on your new shop, wish you nothing but the best.

    Very cool, I'll be watching the shop update as you transform your shop in to a usable space , you have some awesome ideas. I'm moving soon into a older 28' X 28' shop and I'm in need of some ideas your videos will be very helpful
