It is 3/4 of the way full now. I'm starting to finish the inside. I pick up the insulation today. A friend gave me a working pellet furnace so I can heat the shop. I have not made a decision on what to cover the wall with. I know I do not want drywall. I don't think it would hold up well.

Here is what is on the door. It's a shop warming gift from my 19 year old daughter.

Lookin' good!

OSB works well and you don't have to worry about finished seams like with drywall. It is also more durable. Looks good if left natural but if painted white it reflects LOTS of light.

Not only that, you can hang a lot of weight on the walls with sheetrock screws. You can put shelves anywhere, without the need for a stud in the right place.

Above your workbench, a sheet of pegboard if you like.

Great looking shop......I built something similar a while back.....already full and i only have one cub. One thing about having a lot a space ....you always find new things to occupy that new space.

I really enjoy the day when it is raining cats and dogs and I am working in my shop.....the rain on the roof and I am nice and dry and have room to do whatever I need to do and stay dry.

Enjoy!!
