|I have a shed. I had a carport. I have a small garage now.|
The shed is sort of nice, but also sort of a dump. It had power (now disconnected), and a bench. There was no heat or A/C, it was a good 30 yards from my house, and I am fundamentally lazy.
Once I gave up the car habit and re-devoted myself to the computer and electronics habit, I knew I wasn't going to need a giant garage, but I was also pretty sure I'd like a workshop of some sort. We've been back in the house about four months, and I've moved a much of stuff from the shed (because it will go away) into the garage. I've set up a small folding table as a workbench and started taking stock of the tools I have.
I've completed a small handful of projects. More than I would have in the shed. I'd like to think I'm gaining a little momentum here. I can't stress how awesome it is to have a space that's comfortable to work in. I know that I'd do work in uncomfortable spaces (like the back of a Volkswagen?) if I really liked the work (most of the computer stuff I did was not in the shed and therefore in less than ideal conditions). It's awesome to have someplace to do it that works with me.
I think once I get the Raspberry PI up and running (and I just realized a shortcut I could take), I'll buy a new tool chest to replace the countless tool boxes running around and finally get a handle (heh) on all my tools.
