A place to weld, that has lots of light, and space, and warmth. It’s a girl’s dream, right? I guess that means dreams can come true. Honestly, I can’t complain about any of my work spaces. When I started out, I was at my parent’s shed. It was convenient to get to, I had a wood burning stove to warm things up, and when I finished my work at the greenhouse, I could go do some welding.
My next area was in the corner of the garage where I live. Also really handy to just walk outside to go to work, come in to warm up, have lunch, see the animals, all the benefits of working from home. And I had a decent amount of space and light. I used a torpedo heater that I got at an auction and rigged up with a vice grip on those super cold times when I had to get some things done.
In late fall on 2017, after Thanksgiving, I moved all of my equipment and supplies to my new location. It is where we are planning to live in the near future, so I will have all the benefits of working at home. My area is in the southeast corner of the shop. A 7′ x 4′ window on the east side and 2 that size on the south side. It is fully insulated and just the sun keeps it pretty warm in there. I have a bowl of water for Thor (the dog), and it hasn’t frozen yet. Even after nights below zero outside and days in the single digits. There is a wood burning stove on the other end of the shop, and that certainly helps. Especially when I am there a few days in a row. And 10′ ceilings. And outlets for everything. Wonderful, just wonderful. Now we just need a toilet… 😉
