Garage into Workshop

I was getting sick and tired of all the saw dust I was making down in my basement. I had an old one car garage that I wasn't really using, so I decided to turn it into a workshop. It was probably one of the best things I could have done. I tore off the doors, framed and built a wall, and then built a small porch on the front to dress it up and have a small place to sit. I then finished the inside and moved all of my tools in. Im very pleased on how it turned out.

    • Thank you so much. It was a great idea, I can work later at nights now, and not have to worry of waking the kids up with the sound of a power saw. :)

  • I love this!! You should add some accent lights to show it off at night.

    • Haha, I'm one step ahead of you. I actually installed ceiling lights on the porch. If you look right above the right post, you will see the dusk to dawn eye sensor for the ceiling lights. :)

  • Hahahaha...I made that out of concrete. I use that to prop my screen door open, when I'm carrying things in and out. ;)

  • I just join Ryobi Nation and scanning the projects. One question...... to enter a project, you don't have to use the Ryobi tools? In many of these, I didn't see Ryobi tools displayed. So the projects don't have to feature any Ryobi tools? I have many of them, but was puzzled to not see any in this project. Just askin'.....don't get mad at me, I just joined and I'm just asking.
    By Elis, on June 9, 2016
    • No they don't have to be displayed. In some of my other projects, there are some in the picture. And no, I'm not mad for you asking. :)

    • I'm sorry, usually I get email notices of people commenting on my projects, so sorry for the delay response. I have recieved an email last Friday the 10th about my winnings. It takes little over a month until you start getting your tools...Oh, and Congrats to you! :)
