    However, I just like books. The shop is not climate controlled yet. I hope to install a small heat pump sometime soon. Last year, I had it insulated top to bottom with fiberglass rolls between the studs and rafters, then covered almost all of it with white pegboard. I could keep it warm in the winter with kerosine space heaters, but hot weather would drive the inside temperature up past 110ºF, which is as high as my indoor thermometer went.  

    If I leave the doors open to let in breeze, the place fills up with bugs attracted to the lights. Yesterday, went shopping for window A/C units, but didn't buy one. For this summer, I am going to build a lightweight folding frame screen door that will fit the full width of the double doors on the front.  

    When I grow up, I want Norm Abrams' shop. I once found the plans published online. IIRC, the shop is 42" wide, and not quite that deep. Plenty of room for all kinds of tools and equipment, plus the camera crews.
