This is where I started thinking about how I was going to store all of my lumber. I decided to cut access doors in the front and build my storage into my workbench area. This has been the single best idea that has come out of my shop. I can’t express enough how easy it is for me to get straight to a board I need with no hassles. I just remove the doors and pull out what I need.
I can store a surprising amount of lumber in this area. I do have a secondary area for some cutoff sheet goods and a scrap bin next to my table saw in the garage. But this area stores most of my lumber.
After I finished priming and painting I moved on to building the attached structures on the back.
I framed in a 4×8 Garden Shed on the back. I didn’t want it so deep that stuff would get buried in it.
Having your separate workshop is a must if you are a serious DIY-er. It not only helps you organize your tools and work efficiently, it also keeps the entire home a safer place for the family, especially for the kids.
