I have that table too, but I don't have pavers. Liquid Patio, they bring it in a truck, my buddy and I smoothed it out, and then we drank beer and ate steaks.

That barn-style looks cozy! Is that white stuff insulation? If you insulated the floor, how did you do it? What are the dimensions?

Well, here it is. 1985 15 x 48 Sharp lathe. 1960 Cincinnatti Toolmaster Milling machine, and everything works on it.

And that Sportster is gone. In it's place, is a KTM 950 Supermoto, and I ride that CT-70 every day.

I've got a 7 1/2 hp rotary phase converter. Only the mill is 3ph, it's 1 1/2 hp, the lathe has a 5 hp single phase motor, and right next to the mill is a Lincoln 250/250 Tig welder, also single phase, I had an electrician come in and make sure nothing caught fire when I fired anything up, and he told me to never turn that welder all the way up.

Do you see the piston sitting on the lathe? 500in, Top Alcohol Hemi, brand new, someone forgot to tighten a rod bolt, and no, it wasn't me.

White stuff is bubble wrap insulation. Dimensions: 16X40 with 1/2" thick treated plywood floors. Afterall this is Louisiana and severe cold weather is normally a non-issue.

thought I'd finally share mine

A very humble laundry room, just big enough for my tool chests and some shelving. All they power tools and other misc equipment is in trunks in the pantry

The DR350 barely fits inside...

The KLR is just too big

Back in Texas I had a one car garage set up with everything I needed, plenty of workbench space and all my common tools on pegboards. Now that I'm in Santa Fe I just can't afford a place with a garage, maybe some day...

Lots of space there... just rip out that lower cabinet by the front of the bike, maybe mount it up high on the wall if you need the storage. Then, put your tool chest where it was. Yeah, you'll loose access to the top bin but it's on wheels if you really need the stuff in it. Then, make a fold-down bench or 2 along the wall where your tool chest was. Fold-down benches are great as they don't accumulate clutter when not in use. Maybe incorporate a little bit of cabinet space behind them too. Some shelves up high, above head-height, to hold the parts you take off the bike. Might want to incorporate a lip on said shelves if you want to avoid having a gas tank fall on your head. If you're fond of Peg-board, throw it on the far door with a little bit of stand-off, and you're good to go. Then again, it's likely a hollow-core door... You have a drill, right? Speaking of doors, those upper cabinet doors are crying for some thin shelves mounted on them... a place for chain lube or something, anything. Mount some stuff on the inside of the doors while you're at it.

Might even get that KLR in... maybe.

In my shop... everything has it's place and every place has it's thing. You might see a crowded little room... all I see is empty space just waiting for their things. You need to go shopping

A ton of great ideas!
