Since I have the time, I figured that I’d throw up this blueprint of my basement that shows how I will allocate space for various functions. There will probably be some changes. The layout, for example, may extend under the stairs and onto a 6 foot shelf along the back wall of the workshop. I’m also planning to build a photo table between the workshop and the chimney/water heater and a grit blasting cabinet next to the bulkhead in the laundry/mechanical area.
The pink along the exterior walls shows where I will be insulating and adding either plywood or OSB sheathing, but other than the interior walls that I’ll be adding to enclose the workshop (and hopefully keep the noise from the furnace and laundry equipment down a bit) I’m not doing much to the structure.
Track planning is next. I’ve already got a few ideas in mind that I’ll share once I sketch them out.
