Hi everyone,

This is a cool website. Well I just would like to join you all in sharing what I have going on. This is the beginning of my dream shop. Been waiting for this for over twenty years. The main shop will measure 24’ x 30’. An 8’ wide porch will go down the length of the left side, half of which will be enclosed and accessible from the main section. I’m having an Amish contractor build it. I was very fortunate that they dug the holes and got the posts set and concreted in before the hurricane. I’ll try and keep you posted on the progress.

Good for you, and congrats on a super shop to be. This would be very exciting. Good luck with the build. Glad you were safe from Sandy’s path.

Well, I beat the hurricane and the guys got the posts set. Trench for electric conduit stayed dry enough to pass inspection so I filled the trench back in. The guys finally made it back and the shop is progressing well. Concrete comes this Friday for the slab.

Hey all,

It’s been a while since I have posted any progress photos. Currently I’m framing up the interior walls for wiring the outlets, insulation, wainscoting and drywall. I just have the basic wiring done. One interior light, exterior lights and two outlets.

I’ve also started moving in some of my equipment. I do plan on focusing more on hand tool woodworking, but there are still too many home improvement projects where I will need the power equipment. I don’t think I can completely divorce myself from it.

I hope I will be operational by the end of the summer, time and money permitting.

Enjoy.

Have your say...
