From Garage to Work Shop

Started with a 4 car garage that I split in half to make my 20' x 25' custom built workshop. I built a dividing wall with door to the 2 car garage, added electric, ceiling fans, lights, insulated, drywall, paint and installed a mini split unit for both heat and air. Kept the automatic garage door so I could pull in a vehicle to work on or store if needed. I even added a craft area on one wall for my wife, since I am such a swell guy! This room gives me plenty of space to work on the many projects and hobby's, like the cedar picture frames, that I have been wanting to do for the past 80+ years.
