This shop is 24’ X 48’ x 16’. It’s floor is 50” above ground level. It originally had two 7.5’ x 15’ barn style doors but was changed to the current smaller doors after a big windstorm tore one of the big doors off the building. It was originally built with the intent of being a boat building shop. That’s the reason for the big doors and the height above ground. It was built in the early 1980’s and sits on piling. It does have some seasonal movement but so far is holding together fairly well. The inside is partitioned into two rooms.
The smaller room is 8’ X 48’ with an eight foot ceiling, and is primarily for lumber storage, however, there are two tools in this room.
The larger room is 16’ X 48’ with 16’ ceiling. The ceiling of the smaller room forms a loft in this room and is used for storage.
The shop is heated by an 80,000 BTU natural gas furnace, and supplemented by a wood stove in which I burn cordwood and all my woodworking scraps and sawdust. Helps with the gas bill.
Visitors are welcome, but are expected to bring either a piece of hardwood or a chunk of firewood. Those who comply will be rewarded with free advice (worth exactly what you pay for it) and long winded woodworking stories, (which will be greatly embellished)!!!
Thanks so much for looking, and MAKE MORE SAWDUST!!!
