TOO MUCH !!! in a small space

 As embarrassed as I am to post these pictures  ( I feel I should be at a miniatures anonymous meeting ... LOL )  But to give a look at what My shop turned into through the years.  Its a shame I know .

( PS :  I'm sorry for the bad pics I really do need to get a better camera.)

I'm not a hoarder ... ( I keep telling Myself that.. haha !! ) mostly ran out of room to store things. 

Every nook and cranny of my little shop screams mini.   

Now you see why I so desperately need a larger work space  .....  I don't normally show my full shop pictures  mostly of my Mess LOL.   But I think this is a fitting way to say goodbye to the chaos and hello to organization.  

Thank you for your time.

So at the end of a long weekend I managed to install and paint two rails in white..

Install a dead bolt lock in my door...

and received some square tubing that i will use for braces to put up the interior walls....

The post are pretty spaced out and very strong but the bracing will give me a mounting point to install the wall material....

So now off to work till next weekend .  I have a lot of plans for this space and I don't know where to start LOL !!

Hope everyone's weekend was nice ..

Thank you for looking feel free to leave a comment I'm always open to suggestions.

Yes I  have outgrown my little barn type 12x16 wood working shop.  Its in sad shape anyway. No room to store anymore supplies and build in the same space.   I am tired of moving things around to get to whatever work station I need to get at.

 So I took a big step and invested in a 18 x 40 metal building  18 x 30 enclosed and 10x18 as a  covered front porch .... ( I have to have a place to drink my coffee in the morning don't I )  My new shop is huge compared to my old one I feel like all the equipment i have in the old shop will be lost in the new one ..... LOL !!

I will post some pics of the old shop and the progress of the new one tomorrow " I hope ".   I still have a lot to do to get it ready for the move.


Here is My old 12 X 16 the side sheds are for storage the middle is my old work shop.. Its rough I know.

This is My new work shop 18 X 40  I had to add the wrought iron ( well My wife wanted me to ).
This will be our work space I'm trying to get her involved in my  miniatures.

I will try to post some progress pictures If I don't get caught up in the rush of getting things done.

Thank you for looking and stay tuned
