Top Shops: Room for it all
The Miillers' shop design team posted on the shop's 2nd-floor porch.
Michael and SuAnn Miller often work in a separate office in the shop's office-kitchen complex.
The Miillers' shop office is divided into four distinct areas which include an enclosed office, bathroom, kitchen and laundry area.
A definite theme
"Certainly the John Deere theme adds a bit of spice to the entire set up," adds Randy referring to the color scheme of the Miillers' office.
Overlooking it all
The second story of the Miillers' shop office complex, accessed by a spiral staircase, houses two beds, a dresser, a second bathroom and more.
Two workbenches, built by Del Baumiller and Glenn Sommer, were constructed out of wood and topped off with 16 gauge steel tops.
This overall view of the Miiller work area illustrates the shop's capacity to accommodate the farm's largest equipment.
Del Baumiller shows off a 105-foot-long underground tunnel that connects shop with Randy Miiller's home.
The Miillers plumbed the entire shop, including the workbenches, with air using steel piping and an air filtration system.
Instant wash bay
The Miillers can create a wash bay out of a section of the shop by utilizing a unique curtain structure they fashioned from a 50-foot-long tarp curtain.
One big shower curtain
After the curtain has been pulled out for use, the second half of the track system can be swung around to partition off the wash area.
Taking time for design
When it came time to design their shop, the Miillers spent considerable time devising the shop's layout and features.
