Thanks ya'll.  Looking at the pictures of some the small places that are being worked in brings back memories of the shop I started with. It was jam packed but there's one thing for sure ya'll can sure pump some mounts out of places like that and at a lot lower overhead.

Just wanted to thank everyone who has started or posted in these shop threads.  Im building a new shop this summer and have gotten great ideas from all the pics.

Frog, what are the dimensions of your showroom and shop? (Im hoping Ive left myself enough room.) Also, how is the floor in the showroom finished??

This is some shots of my showroom that is packed.













Here are some shots of my storage areas and freezers that are going to be spread out in the new sections on the bottom photos. I can't wait.













Here is some extra space I have started to add to my shop.






Here is my work area.

Huntres  The showroom is 12x28. The floor was cement & we used the spray paint that looks like stone.We used a mold like you use to make a cement walk way. Trace the mold on the floor, then spray the morter color. Let dry then lay the mold down & paint the stone look. Took a BUNCH of cans of paint but once we started it was to late to turn back. We started it & I went on elk hunting trip & my mother finished it while I was gone.Aren't Mothers GREAT!!!!  Didn't know how it was going to hold up but its been there for about 5yrs now with little wear.
 John I promise that it does get dirty, We try to clean up every day before we leave or first thing in the morning. It only takes a few minutes. If you let it go it only gets worse & takes a lot longer to clean. Rodney Casteel's shop is one that you can eat off the floor.

I want to thank the folks with small shops for the encouregement, not being afraid to post. I thought I was the only one with limited space. We built this in 2003; these pics were shortly after moving into it. Don't have a showroom, I'm quite sure that doesn't help my business. The upstairs is where antler storage and freezers are, along with stove, fridge, and misc items. NO ONE goes there but me!   Needless to say, 8 years later the shop doesn't have alot of room left!! It sure doesn't look that empty now.
Since I built it myself, I was able to have 10' ceiling down, 8' up.

Thanks Frog! I was thinking 14x20 but maybe I'll go up to 16x20. I like the floor...that was a good idea.
