The workshop is a 10’ x 16’ in my backyard. I mainly like to do small woodworking and projects, but on occasion, I will take on larger, more complex projects in the shop.

Hopefully you will not have to go through this kind of flooding again.

It could have been worse. We got out and I have upgraded all my tools. I am working on materials list to rebuild my shop and make some improvements.

Thanks I have been working two jobs almost every night since this happened. I have been an avid woodworker for years, but just found this site when I was looking for ideas for improvement to my shop. My old shop is 10X16 and although small, I did a lot of work out of it. I plan to keep the same footprint because I really liked the size of it and it fits into a nice corner of my backyard.
Here are some pics of my various workshops over the past nine months. After mucking I started out with the living room being my workshop.

Then I moved to the carport as my workshop

For a time, while my wife and 4 kids lived with the inlaws, I setup a workshop under the awning of my camper

Now I am back to a carport workshop until I can tear the old one down and put up a new one. Here is some of the various things I have done with my workshops over the past 9 months.

Converted a small exterior storage room to a new food pantry.

I did all the cutting for the wood flooring in the living room and put it throughout the house.
My latest project in the carport shop was to rebuild the front porch

This right after the flood
Finished all the casing work on the polls and rails this past weekend.

Converted my old patio workshop back into a patio.

Have your say...
