Can the shop be heated? AC?

I think it would be impractical to try to heat or cool that large of building any time soon, especially for their circumstances. It won't be used as a dedicated wood shop, but will accommodate several shop functions. As per the work benches, I've suggest, at least for the time being, one side of the shop for woodwork or general related work and the other side for mechanics and related work. I'm keeping an eye out, on the auctions, for a flammables cabinet.

As I said, I really didn't like my shop being "outdoors", I know some
(Leon?) roll their shop out into the driveway to work. I did, for a
while, but _really_ didn't like it. I didn't have a lot of time to
work and not being able to at all for six months of the year wasn't

Nope, Swingman.

And DerbyDad03, to some extent.

My (really small) shop is in the basement but my planer and tools
for breaking down sheet goods are in my garage (which hasn't seen
any kind of car except for Soap Box Derby cars in 30+ years).

I'll admit that a few flurries have landed on my planer and that I've
had to wear a heavy jacket on more than a few occasions. You do
what you have to do...
