My girlfriend and I closed on our first house at the beginning of July, so we've been busy packing up our worldly possessions, moving and planning.While the house is lovely (built in the early 1900s, with good bones and a park directly adjacent), I'm more excited about the garage.
And by garage, I mean the soon-to-be incredible workshop.I'm not quite sure when the garage was built, but from the looks of it, I'm thinking it was around the same time as the house.Structurally, it's in OK shape, though there are very few plumb corners.
My first projects in this garage are going to be the decidedly not fun ones: shoring up the structure, running electric, doing a little demolition to the various shelves and storage cabinets hung haphazardly throughout and developing a plan to insulate the shell.
I also need to figure out a solution for a level floor that doesn't take up too much headroom.For me, the biggest hurdle will be how much to insulate and heat.I'm in Minneapolis, so it gets quite cold for extended periods of prime woodworking time.
I've had a drafty, uninsulated 2 car garage space to use for the last few...
