The house we found has a detached 2 car garage with a room above that was perfect for the shop and office. Putting up a couple of walls allowed me to create a separate room for all the dirty, grit and dust kicking operations. The main room has my workbench, mills, lathe, jig-bore, lapping machine, heat-treating oven, toolboxes, etc…. and the dirty room has the band saw, buffer, bead-blasting cabinet, grinders and surface grinder. Valerie has set up her office and photo studio in the room above.
