This is the final product, it may look cramped but it is a 10 foot by 20 foot space

As part of the ongoing project Karleigh and myself are working on we had to come up with a way to make walls.  However we did not want to spend hundreds of dollars on a wooden wall that is 8 feet high and 20 feet long.  We did the next best thing, and built walls using tarps!  Now these walls are not sound proof, nor are they sturdy enough to set something on, but they are exactly what I needed to begin the cordless workshop.

The wall are constructing using tarp that is 10 feet by 12 feet, the link to the tarp is here.  We only needed to purchase 4 tarps, and we used some old screws and scrap wood that I had lying around, and we were able to build the whole thing for under 50 bucks!!  That is a savings of 75%!!!

Tarps have metal holes that you can drill screws through, using washers to create a tight fit.  We did this and the tarps went up in under 20 minutes.  We then folded over the excess tarp on the bottom over some pieces of wood to hold them down, screwed to tarp onto these and we were done.

The completely cordless journey has taken another step into becoming a functional workshop that I will be able to make farm house tables for our company!!  Time will only tell when I will get my first product out, but be expecting it sooner rather than later.
