I will be experimenting with the placement of fixtures as I get more time.

Plenty of projects on the workshop side!


Love the Triumph art work, really cool idea!

It's winter, the garage is heated, got some tunes going, and the Scoob is getting some new struts.

DualDogDaves Dog House Remodel Installment #5



With the office glassed in my focus will now go toward organizing and working the details.








The Cabinets where easy enough to assemble from kitted cut panels from the local lumber yard that still provides wood mill services.







I like the different professional suppliers of cabinets such as Lista, Moduline, and Baldhead.







I was able to use top grade plywood for a fraction of the cost of a metal cabinet set.









I called in a professional for hanging the 22 cabinetry doors.










After a little painting it was time to mount the new 65" LCD Panel.










It will take more experimenting with the floor plan.








More to come.............................

Is that a '64 Trophy TR6SR ? Wouldn't happen to have an extra tank or rear fender would you?

Indeed!
While we all love looking at pictures of dream shops, the reality is that we will NEVER have anything like that.
Many of us are glad we have even a small corner with a roof over it.
I really like to see what those of us with little make the best of it.

Thanks for posting the pictures!

I see you're a friend to old speakers. Is that a Klipsch Cornwall in the lower right of the pic?

Really nice setup you've got there.

Hi Jack,

Good eye on the speakers..................

I'm an "Old School" audio aficionado
that got kicked out of the house with my big stereo system some years ago.





I saved all of my old stereo equipment for the day that I would finally get to remodel the dog house.






I have four Klipsch Cornwall loud speakers.

One each placed at 45 degrees in each corner of the shop.





The Cornwalls are driven by a pair of Integra 504s running through an old Sony ES 2000 A V processor.

For a little extra punch at lower frequencies I use a Velodyne DD 15 sub woofer.

With an HDMI Matrix A V mixer, I'm currently managing three separate LCD monitors.

Most of my media is mp3 delivered through my custom built media computer with central networking to my NAS (network area storage).

Other entertainment comes from Pandora, Sirius/XM and Direct TV.








More to come as I' able to get things better sorted.
