Idea Shop 2000
Our Idea Shop 2000 occupies a 12x20' building connected to the garage by a covered portico. The shop's 9' ceiling has three powered, venting skylights, each operated electronically. Those, plus four windows, French doors, and a pastel color scheme add natural light and a sense of spaciousness in what otherwise might feel like tight quarters.
When Better Homes & Gardens magazine editors began planning to build their Blueprint 2000 model home in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, they wanted a woodworking shop to go with it. And WOODŽ magazine was glad to help out. Here's the shop we came up with. We call it IDEA SHOP 2000 because it has the high-tech features you'd expect in the new millennium.
