We are moving our workshop from 2 single garages in a city council owned
compound to a larger tin shed on the other side of the yard. Size is around
12 metres(40') x 8 metres (26.5') with a 3 metre (10') sliding door two
thirds of the way along the longer wall leading out on to an asphalt
We have ideas on how we would like to set it up for the maximum amount of
usable workspace and storage but it would be great to have any pictures and
plans of how other workshops have set up their operations, specifically
those of a similar size. We also welcome ideas on what works well and what
mistakes others have made paritcularly in regard to storage and work
To give you an idea of our activities which are relevant to the layout.
We recycle bikes with volunteers who are all adults, sell some and donate
others. We also run 6 week maintenance classes. We occasionally have school
excursions attend. Except for cheap rent from council we are totally self
supporting from bike sales and classes.
Please post your ideas. If you have plans and photos you would like to
share please email us at :-
