I wanted to share some photos of my just completed tackle/fly tying room.
The shed is 10’ X 20’, and I ordered it with a barn door on one end and two windows and an entry door on the other.
We built in a stud bulkhead at 12’, leaving me with an 8’ X 10’ storage area for worthless stuff like the lawn mower and gardening tools.
 
We wired and insulated the rod room, then I found a private sawyer who could supply the 1” X 6” lumber for the interior.
We liked the blue wood, worm holes and all.
PVC pipe was insulated and installed in the back wall to act as rod tubes.
This is basically the same set-up you find on boats.
In my case, it allows me to store strung-up rods as long as 17’, in a room only 12’ long.
We left the rafters open and they give me a ton of storage for rods and tubes.
 

Just a shed. Delivered on a tilt-bed truck. The windows and entry door were extra. It was both hot and smokey (notice the background) during construction. The A/C went in early.


The interior as received. Pretty basic.


Progress. Pretty cool looking wood.


3" PVC pipe set in the end wall for long rods.


Finished. The interior from the doorway.


Another look at the rod tubes in use. They'll easily hold 4 rods each.


A single hand rod rack is on the opposite wall.


The tying desk we built. It will never be this uncluttered again.


Rod racks and reel storage.


The little electric Franklin stove provides more than enough heat in a space this small.

That is too cool. I would never go into the house if it was mine. Thanks for sharing!

Really well done!   You can disappear out there and your wife will think you at work!  Sure looks nice and tidy.  Mine looks like a hand grenade went off in it but then again I am still preparing for a BC trip and there's marabou everywhere.  I like the tubes in the wall.....
Thanks for putting up such nice photos.
Hope you have a good season up there......counts show they are coming your way.

Thanks guys! I was hoping to inspire someone.
I'm looking forward to messing it up.[wink]

Kevin,

I believe it is beetle wood. Hopefully, all are deceased.
The other shop?
The pistolsmithing shop is in our converted garage.
It's already a mess. A big one.[smile]

Just went back and looked again at this thread.  WHAT A BEAUTIFUL ROOM!  As an architect and a custom home builder, my hat is off to you.  I would simply enjoy just sitting there with the stove going, sipping a nice single malt and reading a book.  Enjoy!

Wow! You can't beat the design for your man-cave. I would stay there full time, except when I went fishing. Maybe you can have meals and clean laundry brought to you, so you don't have to go back to the house.

The blue tint to the wood is something special. I have never seen that before.
