I turned the desktop around so I have a new surface to mess up.
I put my second PC in the shop running on a $15.00 WIFI adapter that looks like a flashdrive with an antenna. HULU, You Tube, Email, in the shop !!!!
I have so much more "functional" room now.
More storage room as well, there is another bench like that in the shed where the air compressor & sandblaster & grinder is, and it is full of parts too.

I catch some heat off the furnace vent, and there is an unfinished 1/2 bath.....can't get the plumber to quit building computers!!
The bowl is dated 1907, I rescued it from the square in Carrollton GA. Wall mount tank and cast iron pedestal sink 1936
I can roll from one side to the other in my chair, stand up and work and there is plenty of light WOO - HOO
I am still not finished organizing, that will take a while longer, but it's up and running again and I am way behind.
I still have to run power to the shed also.......

Nice set up. Looks like you can easily work in there. The assembly line looks cool. I also like the old toilet, it has a nice design.

This is the space I had for the last 21 yrs. The other end of this room is the kitchen.
This is after thousands of parts were removed.
It had the water heater, washer & dryer in there as well, "Sardine City" 9' x 19' is how big this room is with kitchen cabinets on the end

I had to use the tops of the washer & dryer as tables. That made it difficult to wash clothes or cook, especially all at the same time.
I was living in a Slide Puzzle ! My drill press was in the living room!
Anyone who had stopped by there to get a computer will know just how tiny it was.
The building was only 20' x 20' with a small bedroom and bath upstairs.
I no longer live in my shop, or my shop is not in my house, one or the other.
Thanks
Joe

That is the corner of the stove in the bottom left of the picture, the washing machine was on the left side
and the dryer was straight across the room from the washer.
It was like living in a submarine.
