Workspace layout
« on: July 23, 2017, 04:51:50 PM »
I finally got power to my shop space which will open up a lot of options for me with layout. I'm curious how you all have your spaces laid out.

-Size
-Primary function (prototyping, cut and sew, repair, etc.)
-Work flow
-Machine position (against wall, back to back, perpendicular to wall, etc.)
-Efficiency solutions
-Fabric storage
While we're at it, lighting and HVAC

Pictures get extra credit!

My shop:
-Size
12'x30'
12'x25' open workspace, 12'x5' storage area in rear with doorway
-Primary function (prototyping, cut and sew, repair, etc.)
Repair of outdoor gear
-Work flow
intake area/reception @ front door
Repair to do
daily repair queue
Main repair area
Seam Taping station
Outgoing repairs


-Machine position (against wall, back to back, perpendicular to wall, etc.)
Looking in from front door: 48" Rolling workbench perpendicular to wall; against left wall: pfaff 1245 , Janome MC6600, then Singer 20U53 perpendicular to wall facing front door.

Looking from front door against right wall: repair intake and delivery, rolling rack, 48" 2 drawer filing cabinet. Along right wall, high, roll fabric storage in rack on wall. 6' Folding table under fabric for repair flow. Small cabinet, general storage, light table on top. Air Compressor, Typical GC2605 cylinder arm. Wire drawer rack material storage. Desk for office work (too big and collects junk).

-Efficiency solutions
High Fabric storage on rolls
Lots of folding tables for modularity
Workstation similarity and stocking

-Fabric storage
Primarily rolls high on the wall.
Some material storage in drawers under seam seal station.

While we're at it, lighting and HVAC
12'x30'
Just got 100a service to the shop, it was wired when I moved it here. Propane heater w/ 2 100# tanks.

Pics when I get the new layout done!

Better late than never! Here are some images of my workspace. I've rearranged since these, so I'll try to update them next time the shop gets cleaned up, which should be this afternoon. Looking at these, this may have been prior to getting power run to the shop. My biggest challenge is definitely large cutting jobs, as the shop is narrow, but otherwise it works well for now.
