McLeansville, NC -- Every man needs a place to tinker and do "honey-do" projects. An at-home workshop is just the place.

Tom Garcia, with Southern Evergreen, said a simple shed can be easily converted into a functional workshop.

Garcia said if you re-do your kitchen, never throw away your old cabinets. They can be installed in your garage or your shed, as a great way to organize your storage space. He added that you can find old cabinets at garage or yard sales as well and paint them to freshen them up for your at-home workshop.

Garcia said a lot of electrical outlets are also key, since you'll likely be using power tools and need a lot of lights in your workshop.

According to Garcia, you can run power lines and water pipes from the sources in your home to your workshop, so you do not need to install addition sources of electricity and water.

There are also heating and air-conditioning units, more efficient than space heaters, that allow you to work in your workshop all year long.
