Shop Specs

  • Location: Utterson, , Canada
  • Size: 1120sq. ft.
  • Type: Detached
  • Focus: Furniture
  • Heating/Cooling: Radiant Floor

After I retired I moved to Muskoka and built my 28 x 40 dream shop. It has hydronic radiant floor heating that keeps me warm in the winter and a 10 foot ceiling that allows for larger pieces. There are two 8 foot windows that allow for great natural light and ventilation and a beautiful view of my yard. I spend about 30 hours a week in the shop building custom furniture. All the tools are on wheels that allows me to reconfigure as my needs change.

The shop also has a second floor where I have desk space and storage. I have plans to have a showroom/studio where I can provide space for local artists to display their work as well.
