We're about ready to begin the serious work of setting up the garage shop at the Project House. We have replaced the overhead door with new carriage house doors, insulated and hung drywall, replaced the windows and added a subfloor. Oh yea, and we added a subpanel to power the shop along with benchtop-height outlets.
I'll dig around for our rough floor plan and post it here later this weekend, but in general we're looking for tips on setting up a remodeler's shop. Ladder and cord storage, lumber racks, tool storage, etc.
When I was setting up my own shops, I used to try to follow a workflow for cabinet making: back up my truck to the door, slide plywood off the tailgate and onto the table saw. Outfeed fed the miter saw station to cut parts to length, then assembly tables towards the back and a finishing room all the way back.
The spaces next to the overhead door were used for long skinny tools, like digging bars, long bar clamps, etc. and cords usually hung on a wall towards those front corners. Ladder storage could be difficult depending on the shop -- some of the compact garages I set up (rentals) affirded little extra room for bulky stuff like that.
