Workshop.

I'm building a new workshop. My bikes and projects will go into it as well as my work. I'll put a wood heater, fridge, kettle and an old couch in it. Then pretty much live in it...
I'll post more pics as it's finished and fitted out.
Feel free to put up pics of your work spaces, mostly cause I'm a nosey bugger and I also need some ideas. Cheers.

Real nice!
I'm part way through finishing mine.
Double car garage conversion to heated shop space.
The insulation and drywall is done. (serious insulation, batting plus 1.5 inch foam board in the walls, and double batting in the ceiling)
The furnace is installed.
Power has been drawn in and a local panel installed, the rest yet to be done, including a 220 volt outlet.
Have selected the floor covering, it's going to be Swisstrax Diamond. (no insulating value but is a very poor heat transfer material and warmth wise to the feet will be like plywood sheeting has been laid down).
LED lighting to be used.
Fiendish level of work to get the best sealing I can at the insulated 5 panel door, came up with a double sealing system as part of it.
Sadly, given how much stuff will be in the shop, I won't have room for a couch!

That's some serious next level insulation Mcromo. I probably won't have to insulate my shed since it doesn't get crazy cold here. A wood heater will do.
My shed is 9m by 6m and is a galvanised steel kit. It all bolts together and bolts onto a concrete slab. All the cladding is screwed on. Minimal cutting. Although the plans are only good for swatting flies with. I've spent more time scratching my head than actual building. A window, roller door and personal access door. I'll build a 3m work bench along one wall. 240 volt power will be run to a it once I finish the cladding. Several 10amp power outlets including a 15amp outlet for welding. I'm also fitting led lighting.
Here is a pic. I hope this one loads up. I loaded up a pic in the first post but it never showed up even though site says attachment successful? I've been having trouble with pics and loading since the security upgrade. Which sux. Fingers crossed.

The pic appeared fine and dandy when I saw this post.

Finally got my shed up. I'm not a builder, many mistakes along the way. Now for the interior. Waiting for the electrician to run power, fit outlets and lights. Started building my work bench. I'll also use pavers to build a pad outside the roller door so I'm not dragging soil into the shed.

Thanks mate. A rough as guts builder! I will admit I'm not a complete novice. I spent years working as a plumber for the family business. Now if it had been a dunny I'd have been all over it and it'd be perfect.
The sparky turned up this afternoon, a mate. I'll give him a hand to run power and lights tomorrow.

Workbench is done, power is run. I've got led strips in the ceiling tubes and halogen flood lights over the bench, both variable wattage. A bank of power outlets at bench and some around the walls. All 240 volt run through a fuse board. I've pretty much finished for now since spring is around the corner and I've got bee work to get on with. Hives to service and boxes to make. No rest for the wicked.

Once done, it'll serve you for years to come.
Even the bees will be thankful!
