I finally remembered to bring my camera home from the shop. The place wasn't as bad as I thought.... actually quite a bit of concrete showing. There is however a couple places where I have to turn sideways to get through, but only when the forks are inside. Almost 0 F outside now, so the forklift is in anytime I'm not using it.

I'm about done outdoors now due to the weather, so swamping out a place to work indoors is the first priority. Still need to finish running power to my sheds (digging through inventory searching for that elusive widget that I know I have, but don't know just where, will be much easier without holding a dim flashlight in my mouth) and need to replace door gaskets on my parking garage attached to the house. Then, then it's time for shop jobs by the wood stove.

Its too difficult to wade thru a mess. I moved a job in today, finished it and out it went. The split second I am done its out and cleaned up.

With as few of pictures that has been posted, I feel like I have found a home! I wondered if I was the only one that was maxed out. I'll try to get some pics to post up.

I agree! I sometimes do a mid job reset and clean things up. I hate to do a job in the shop where I'm rushing and at least not paying enough attention to put tools back on the service cart. I spent a few hours just cleaning the shop and doing small tasks on Saturday. Therapeutic!

I would kill to have that much room to work in.
I have half (theoretically) of a 24x24 garage, but there is in reality a lot less room than it would appear, due to various items taking up floor space, such as tool chest,hydraulic press,chop saw cart,air compressor,shelving unit,storage cabinet,welder cart,oxy/acetylene cart, as well as a basement stairwell taking some of the real estate out of the total, and also the need to leave a walk way to the side garage door.
Having just gone out and measured, my actual usable space is roughly 15x8 feet, or 120 sq. ft. There is a 4.3x2' welding table in that usable space, so I'm left with a grand total of slightly more than 111 sq. ft.
No wonder I feel like a mole in a tunnel when I try and get around in there.

I'm in the same boat, cramd. Half of a garage, like you. Tool chest, Miller engine drive welder, on cart, Millermatic 135 on a service cart. Air compressor, bottom section of a tool chest for storage of welding stuff, shelf full of shi.......... errr, stuff, Generator, on cart, workbench, small cable spool work table, Cabinets for storage of more sh......... stuff......
Not good for room either.

Thanks guys! Sometimes I get to feeling cramped in my 30x54 shop with 14' ceilings. I get a big job going and it seems like I am tripping over my own shadow. I am planning an expansion of 12 x54 covered area on the concrete pad just so I can get some equipment out of the shop but not outside (air compressor, jacks, steel storage). Hopefully that will buy back enough real estate to fit more jobs in at one time.

It does not matter how many squares you got, it gets filled up. Heres a pic of my main shop before I moved into it (50x100). The second pic is was taken pretty much at the same place/angle of the pic I included in this thread.

In addition, I have another 12k + sqft of pole barns, and I can not even get a vehicle in the main shop, and with all that space, Ive got vehicles parked all over the property, because the buildings are all full.

And to think, my last home shop was only 1100sqft....
