I will be relocating my nine person trade shop next year. I
have been putting much thought into designing an comfortable,
organized, productive well ventilated shop. Any suggestions
regarding books, articles or ideas will be appreciated.
The latest AJM has a very good article about organization and
cleanliness as it relates to productivity. We moved our shop a few

our processes and equipment layout. I began reading the article
thinking I knew everything, and found it had some tricks I hadn’t
Also, a Feng-Shui book won’t hurt. Some of it’s a little out there,
but the basic premise is creating an environment that’s inviting and
safe. It will have you clearing pathways and positioning equipment
so you can see the doors, among other practical things.
