I haven't seen anyone mention an office area, where you
can keep your Motors manuals, maintenance records, sundry
books and paperwork, fridge with soda pop (& beer), back issues of
Hemmings Motor News, etc. It's also a good place to keep
the shop stereo -- where it won't get so dusty and won't
be exposed to paint and solvents. An old blacksmith I
worked for years ago kept a cot in his shop office, for
those occasional episodes when his wife opined that he
wasn't fit to sleep under the same roof as herself.
