I've been working on posting the links to the videos correctly. The thumbnails weren't showing up, so I'm reposting them here, in case the wonky YouTube links I used before made you nervous.








I'm not sure that's any better, but I will be posting these correctly in the future. Enjoy!

I'm a little late in updating. I've been working on the siding, and I'll admit - this is NOT my favorite part of the build. The panels are heavy, the dust when cutting sticks to everything, and installing by myself, I'm not able to get the accuracy I was hoping for. That said, it's coming along, and I just have the upper gable ends left to install before I start working on the soffits.

I ended up using boards stacked at the base to "hold" the panels in place while I attached them. I used window shims to level them, and deliberately left a gap between panels, which I'll seal with caulk, to replicate the expansion seams on our house that has actual stucco.



I've been using the Kreg Rip-Cut for long cuts for a while, and it does pretty good on these panels, especially with the Diablo Hardie blade I bought for my circular saw. Unfortunately, the plastic lock mechanism on the Rip-Cut came apart. Fortunately enough, it gave me an excuse to buy a new track saw!





Did I mention this stuff is dusty?! I was using a N95 face mask, but probably would have been safer with a respirator on.



At the end of it all, I'm pretty pleased with the results. It's not perfect, but I can hide imperfections with caulk, paint, and trim.



Next step is to finish out the upper gable ends, then get the materials to do the soffits. I'm looking forward to the exterior being sealed off. The next video will go live later today, and I will post that when it does!

Awesome stuff! I have the same desire to build my own workshop. I'll have to keep this thread, and your videos, close by for if I ever decide to do it. I'll definitely have to wait on the price of materials to go back down to reasonable prices.

I haven't got a ton done on the tiny workshop lately. Between almost daily rain, and other house priorities, I have only been able to finish up the siding - which I'm certainly pleased about! I don't like working with the Hardie material, though I'm confident it will pay off in the long run.

I shored up the gable ends, which I was dreading, since I'd be working off the ground, and having to be precise with angle cuts. It ended up being a non-issue, and I was able to knock it out over 2 evenings after work.

I took my time with the measuring and marking out the cut lines





The panels require a 1/4 inch gap between the bottom and the flashing, so I used a couple of 6" drill bits to rest the panels on as I nailed them into place



As humid as it's been here in Rockport, any time I cut Hardie, I'm coated with a significant dusting that sticks to my sweat. It's pretty gross. The Diablo Hardie Blade has been a perfect investment for this project. It cuts through the siding like nothing!



I'm glad to have the siding done. Next step is to figure out the soffit. I've got the supplies, and just need to block out all the attachment points under the gable ends and along the sides.



I'll be posting the video soon. I appreciate all of you who are following along here, and subscribing to the YouTube channel!

It's been a while but I'm still plugging away on the workshop. I finally have the soffits installed, and the shop is all closed up.

This part required a lot of extra framing and blocking to support the thin Hardie soffit material.



The worst part of the Hardie panels is cutting them. Even with a good quality Hardie blade, there is a lot of dust, which gets all over you when you're sweating the Texas heat and humidity.



The side perforated quarter inch soffit panels came in 12 foot lengths, and these were near impossible to handle by myself without breaking them, so I cut them down to 4-foot lengths to make the install go easier on me.



For the end gables, I ripped down quarter inch 4x8 Hardie sheets to size. My wife helped hold the panels on the front side, and I ended up building a jig to hold them on the back side (this worked much better).



I'm glad to have this part done, and the shop closed in. I still have some trim to install, and of course, I will be caulking and painting, but this gets me to a good point to start working on the inside. First thing - running electrical.

I'll post the video link below for the soffit install. Thanks to all of you for following along!

It's very cool to follow how you fulfill your little dream. To build your own workshop is probably the dream of any man. However, not everyone can afford this. I am very glad that in the end everything turned out very cool for you. I hope that after you finish with your workshop, you will not stop producing videos! My friend is just like you a YouTuber. However, my friend has a slightly different type of channel, he is engaged in creating various props from movies and games. In the past, he was mainly engaged in marine engineering. But after many years of working in the army, he decided that it was time to do something else and now runs his own channel. In general, I hope everything will be as good for you as for my friend!

In my opinion, you can't just take it and start uploading everything to YouTube. Being a YouTuber is much more difficult than it seems.

Thank you! I'm certainly keeping up with the videos as I go. I'm currently working on the electrical, and that's going a little slower than I planned, but I will have the video posted not long after I finish that stage.

I've been in the YouTube game for a while now (my other channel, The Goode Life Outdoors, is actually pulling in a bit of income), and hope to continue to build this channel through building and setting up this workshop, then as I work on all the projects I have planned (and that are yet to come). I love doing things myself, so I have high hopes to grow this channel. I'll invite all of y'all to subscribe if this is something of interest - it would certainly help me out!

Absolutely! I have been learning as I go, and it's a beast of a platform to get into and be successful. My outdoor channel took about a year to get any traction, and this one is a bit slower than I was expecting. I'm committed to improving and growing as much as I can. I'd love to make this a full-time gig, but I definitely a ways off on that.

I've not been idle in the pause in posting. Lately, I've been working on running the electrical in the shop. My dad is a licensed electrician, and as a kid, I often went with him on jobs to help run wire (mostly wriggling into tight spaces), so this kind of work is familiar - though I found I was a bit rusty. Case in point - I bought the wrong 12 gauge wire so I spent a good deal more time stripping out the stiffer ground-burial-rated stuff. Oh well, live and learn.

I installed an 8-breaker sub panel and will have 60 amp service from the house panel.



A neighbor lent me his Hole Hawg to get the outlet holes drilled. This thing is a beast, and a lot of fun to run. It certainly made quick work of the wall holes.



Running wires went quick, as it was what I was most experienced with. I really enjoyed this part.



Filling the sub panel completely made it a bit of a challenge to wire neatly, but I'm pleased with how it all turned out.



As it sits today, all the interior switches, plugs, lights, and the breaker box are wired up and ready for power.



My house panel is an older style CH panel, and I was unable to find the correct breakers locally. My dad was able to get the 60 amp breaker at his local supply house, so I am picking that up this weekend and getting the power on by Sunday!

The video turned out pretty good for this one, and it will be live later today. I'll post here once it's set.

Per conversation with the city, as long as I was not adding a separate electric service to the building itself, I was good to go. I'm using a licensed electrician (my dad) for the hookup between the 2 structures. The building itself is unpermitted as it's under the 200 sq ft threshold for in-city structures.

The power is on, and I spent this weekend getting the workshop insulated! Here in south Texas, we are not getting any autumn weather yet, so it was hot, sweaty, itchy work, especially wearing long sleeves and a mask.



I started with the ceiling, so that was a full day working over my head. I am pleased with the results.



There was a lot more to do to finish out the walls, though that work went a lot smoother.



I cut it WAY too close on the amount of material I bought, but I was able to use every scrap to finish out the walls. I do plan to go back with some expanding foam to fill in the corners, and that should cover everything.



It's amazing how much this made a difference in sound! It's so much quieter in here, and that's going to be great for filming my videos. Speaking of which, this episode is live, and I will link to it below.

Check out the insulation installation video! It's a pretty straightforward process, so I had some fun with timelapse shots.

I am pleased to share the next stage in this tiny workshop build. I spent some time installing 3/8" plywood as the wall covering inside the shop, and it turned out great! I still have to trim things out, but it's awesome having a (near) finished look inside.

I originally planned to use 5mm poplar plywood from Lowes, as it was one of the less expensive options, and looked nice. However, about the time I was set to go buy it, it jumped considerably in price - almost a 50% increase! I then opted for the 3/8" which was a few bucks cheaper, and I figured having the extra thickness would work out better in the long run. I needed 27 sheets to complete the shop, which worked out to about 900+ pounds of lumber.



Once I got some final trim pieces in place, and cleared out the shop, I began installing the ceiling panels. I screwed a couple scrap boards together to screw to the top plate of the wall hold the bottom of the plywood, and pre-drilled all my screw holes to help the solo installation go smoother. Other than some on-the-fly readjustments, it went ok - just slow and steady.



I bought the WEN Track Saw a while back, paired with 2 Powertec Tracks, and I used the heck out of it for this stage of the build. It was nice to simply line up my marks and go, and be confident of a straight, accurate cut. I used the stock blade for this, and it worked just fine, though I will definitely be buying a better blade for future projects.



Putting up the wall panels was easier, though still slow-going, since I wanted to ensure all my measurements were dead-on, especially for the outlets and fixtures. There are a few places that I'll notice where things aren't perfect, but I'm pleased for the most part. I did screw up one panel around the door, where I measured an inset and cut from the wrong side, but it was nothing a scrap piece of ply couldn't fill in. I didn't total it up, but I used almost an entire 1,000 piece box of 1.5" screws here.



I probably took more time than necessary on this stage, just being careful in my measuring and cutting. I spent 4 days getting this done, so putting up that last panel felt really, really good. Once I get the trim around the doors, windows, and edges, the interior will basically be done and ready to actually do some shop work!



I put a lot of detail of my progress into the video, so you can see how it all came together. I'll post that below.

And just like that, 7 months later, the build is done! I finished up the interior trim, and painted the outside. I am very pleased with the results, and I can't wait to get in there and start working on projects!






I had the paint matched to our house paint. It's hard to see here, but the match is outstanding, especially with the stucco pattern Hardie on the shop and the real stucco on the house.



I'm loving the plywood interior, and the trim brings everything together well.





I've been moving my tools back into the space, and I'm going to purge some of the stuff before I move it in. Ideally, this needs to stay as clean and organized as I can make it to be usable.

The end of the build is only the beginning, so from here on out, I'll be posted my projects and builds in this thread. Thanks for following along!!!

I buckled down and got things knocked out in this video. I cut down 8.5 hours of footage into this 12.5 minutes.

Do you like the lights you ended up with on the interior? I've got a tac room in our new barn that i'm using as my workshop that needs a little more light.

Yes, I like them a lot! Since I will not only be working on projects, but filming at the same time, I like that I can tilt the "petals" of each unit to shift light around. In this small space, they are super-bright!

Turned out Goode!

Any specific reason why you hand painted versus using a sprayer? I understand using a brush around the trim, but that was some work with the roller.

I used decent quality paint and it covered well. I did use cheap rollers, so I simply learned to switch them out more often to keep it moving. I do plan to buy a sprayer for furniture work.

great job! Now the fun begins in using it.

I did notice you have quite a step up to the floor from the ground, at door entry. Are you considering pouring a full or partial ramp across?
My shop has two 10' sliding doors, one on the end and one on a side. We poured concrete ramps for both and they've been a life-saver moving things in and out.

Thanks! One of my next projects is to build a 10x10 deck off the front, to ease entry, reduce tracking sand into the shop, and to use as an extended work area.

I forgot to ask where you got them since i've seen several versions.
