Gosh is that a 101 there are not many that can load them up    ::).


Proteus

No, its a Trio TS820s. A similar vintage to the 101 and yes it does need loading up (all part of the fun)!

Here in southern Ontario (Canada) we are blessed with basements in the majority of our homes. Most people usee them for storasge, party rooms, spare bedrooms and such, however, a few of us with more productive minds ( :D) us them for some really neat things.
 In my case I build live steam, fix old machinary and build baots. Consequently I've divided my workshops into lite (for boat detail and such work), heavy (for machine work on live steam and building big boat bits) and super duty where the welders and heavy mob work (this shop is outside).
  Although it keeps me out of the wifes hair, and she never cleans it (thank heaven), she does complain , from time to time, of the banshea like noises and gutteral groans coming from the depths of the house.
  If I have anything to suggest, ist get rid of the excess you don't use..............now here's the hard part.........figuring out what is the excess you won't use. I figure its all gold that will, in the fullness of time, be consumed.

I'm sorry it is far too organised, clean and tidy. Please mess it up a bit, you are making me look bad. If my wife saw the photos of your workshop, my life would not be worth living!!!!!!!

Life is too short to tidy up!

This is my shed - about 8x6 was a big as I could fit between two trees. Its insulated and has two heaters - a 500 watt wall mounted convector with frost stat, and a 120 watt tubular heater under the bench for warming my toes :D The floor is carpeted - not lost anything important yet ;D, as this is the only insulation to the floor - I can only just stand up as it is, so couldn't afford to lose any height by insulating the floor. When (if) we move next year I hope to be able to get a bit more space so I can set a couple of power tools permanently.

Hi

After re felting the old shed last year with good quality felt and its settled down now and looking good. and has power now.
 
I would like to insulate it.

What materials has been used by those that have insulted their worksheds including what it has been finished off with ?.

The walls and roof of my are insulated with sheet expanded polystyrene from Wickes. It is finished with match boarding - easier to handle than sheet materials. When I do the next I will add more battens to give greater rigidity and facilitate fixing shelf brackets etc.

I was told not to use expanded poly. as mice love to tunnel into it.

Mine is concrete block construction and insulated with 80mm fibre glass panels, between 80mm timber uprights, then covered with 30mm chipboard. The ceiling (under a Roman Tiled roof) is also 30mm chipboard with 80mm glass fibre panels laid on it.

For flooring I have wooden duck boards.

For heating I have two portable electric convector, fan assisted heaters - which I have never turned on in two years!

The workshop is 18m X 10m. One end is divided into two rooms. One room contains the pool filter equipment and the other is a dedicated clean room for painting etc.

Hi Martin,
My shed had a 2" x 2" frame, I replaced my four windows with a new frame I made of "2 x 2" and made the two centre ones openers, doubleglazed the glass for better insulation. Clad all the inside with double sided foil insulation that is used in between roof rafters. filled all joins and gaps with expanding Polly foam Installed two air vents on opposite corners at roof height for ventilation. Then clad all the inside with 1/2" ply. sealed all the joints, laid  1/2" insulation on the floor, then used up the laminate flooring I had left over from a job I did in the house. Ran 1 1/2" skirting round the bottom so the floor still " floats". Then wired it all out, job done!.  Took my time doing it, it is easy to keep clean, weatherproof, and its my bolt hole. Spent about 50 on materials, had quite a few bits and bobs laying around which I used.

Here,s a few pics of my workshop. Built within the last two years it is in two area,s, the reason is because I only got into model boat buildin about 18 months ago and the original shed I built was 12 feet by 6 feet. I then extended this workspace by building a smaller 8 foot by 6 foot extension onto it. The original shed is where I do my filling/sanding and fibreglassing and also houses my small lathe and piller drill. The new part is more comfortable and comes complete with television radio and heater, also houses the band saw and sanding station.

Our one kid has moved out (a few years back actually), and I now have almost 100% squatter's rights to the house's basement... and a little spillage into the garage too!

The "clean" part of the basement (with carpet) is my office/library/model storage area.
The toasty warm furnace room is my workshop, just sizable enough.

Someone elsewhere was asking about parts storage... I found some plastic sliding drawer units, which are usually too flimsy for my taste, but I made them alright by screwing them down to some bookshelves. Great for slightly bigger stuff, like spare props and ESC's.

For many other Good, Bad, and really Ugly shops- see:

Looks like a fire caused it Dave. :-))

 Only hope the insurance is going to shell out. Didn't have any Lipos on charge??

  Me mate in Michigans workshop looks as big as Pats, seen smaller Industrial workshops than those.
