« Part 16: Well, Another Problem (?) is Found ! Part 17 of Finally, My Dream Shop series Part 18: In Case Your Wondering...... »

Thanks all for the crossed eyes, toes, and fingers…....we finally did it ! All I have now is the temporary garage door removal, the infamous toilet at the end of my driveway, and maybe some sodding of the damaged lawn.

Congratulations. I’ve been following your progress with a mix of envy and sympathy. I can only wish for a shop like yours, so I am quite jealous. However, I can only imagine the frusrtration you’ve described. Nothing left but to have at it.

(reminds me of my wedding anniversary (May 20th)... on the Monday, here in Canada, everyone would set off fireworks to celebrate with us!)

Congratulations! That is terrific!!! Now, please let us see the shop as you put things in their place. BUT, take your time – I still must install the permanent DC system, as I had to play with the layout for many months.

Well done!!!

WOOT! Congratulations! Now you can start having officially sanctioned fun, instead of that bootleg fun you’ve been having!

Just in time for the Holiday Season. I could almost hear a sigh of relief when I saw your Dream Shop posting #17.

Congratulations on completing your shop to the point of occupancy. It’s yours to do what you want with it. Enjoy and make many beautiful things. I look forward to seeing your projects.
