    Shop move/renovation/build

    Hey everyone. I got inspired of all the nice shops shared here so i just had to share mine. Ivve been at it since this summer and there is still some left to do but im so happy with how things are turning out and to have a place like this.
    It was a dark and damp garage when i moved in, thought id just epoxy the floor and throw some paint on the walls. But after moving in i discovered quite a bit of mold and the roof was leaking.
    Pictures arent very many since i recorded a bunch of video instead. Outside walls got clad with corrugated metal sheets. The old office was removed and rebuilt on the outside and a door was put in through one of the long walls.

    It wasnt really planned but the stars alined and a complete overhoul was done, got a new press brake and i retrofitted my router (and painted) Hope you like it as much as i do.









    New office on other side of a wall.


    Office done.

    Nice space!!! If I had something like that I'd probably never make it home.

    Thanks guys! I feel really lucky.

    The place next door is a powdercoating company, hence the color matching I help them, they help me.

    Going there today to make some more sound absorbers out of left over cieling panels. You can see two of them on top of the "wire cage/track"-thing in the second last photo. They are both to ad some color, absorb some high pitch sounds from the router and I have some holes in the walls to cover up. Tripple whammy!
