Wow, that is nice. Can't wait to see pics of the inside when it is set up.
So, what is going to go into the upstairs when you get around to that?

That shop is outstanding. Great design and the workmanship is first rate. I'm looking forward to seeing the inside pics, too.

That is so sweet. It looks like a great shop, but also it does not bring down the look of the yard. It actually adds to it. Nice design and work. You must be excited to move in.

Well, I still need to hang the shingle moulding and cut in the soffit vents. And I'm going to finish out the upstairs at some point. And I need to build some shelving and cabinets and move all of my tools in.
But for all intents and purposes, I'm done building the workshop.
It's 18' x 22' with a 9' ceiling. The 1st floor is finished to drywall (but not mudded or painted). I put in 36 individual 110V recepticals on 5 separate 20A circuits in addition to 3 lighting circuits. Currently I have no 220V equipment, but I've got the capacity at the subpanel.
The lighting really deserves it's own paragraph. I picked up four 4' fluorescent fixtures with four bulbs each (for $20 total on craigslist). And then I put in ten 6" cans (on a dimmer). Standing in this workshop with all of the lights on is like standing on the face of the sun. I'm actually considering removing 2 bulbs from each fluorescent fixture. It's bright.
I got the final inspection on the building permit and should be moving in this weekend. Pictures of the inside are forthcoming - I'm just too focused on getting moved in at this point.
