Today the crazy vintage architect(Mafe) and his sweet grilfriend from France dropped by to af cup of coffe.

We spend a very nice time with talking and once again my english was not the best,but i think they understood me( at least i hope so )

I am planing to make a workshop on the roof were i can get 24kvm. I was in doubt if i could do it up there cause its an old roof and i was affraid to make it “to tight” so the woodenconstruction cant “brieef”.

I took Mafe 5 mins to explain how i can do it with no problems so now I AM IN HEAVEN :D:D:D

First of all i have to remove all we have placed there,but thats piece of cake. Think ill do it tomorrow :)

Then i can start up building. Of course i need some materials and so but WEEEE NOW I GET A SHOP AT HOME::D

On work i have 350kvm with all kinds of machine etc,´but this is gonna be my cave…MY CAVE…...

I have been waited for this in years and now its finnally happens.

I got such a good felling about this i simply just need to share it with people who understand so thats why i write it here :)

When i have removed all the stuff i will post a picture and from there it can it be followed.

When all is finish i hope LJ from all over the world will come and drink a beer and play :D

Wuhuuu this is just the best :)

My great inspiration to get started was when i entered the most cosy shop…..THE MAFE`S VINTAGE SHOP…

That was like coming home….Thanks Mads :)

Hi Napoleon,
I’m happy it was the push needed, and I made you a little sketch here, so you have a start for the project.
I’ll PM in high ress, so you can print it.
Thank you for the coffee, to you and your sweet love, from Caroline and I.
Best thoughts,
Mads

How excitied you seem to be about build this shop space. I wish that I could come by some days when I am off with my tool belt ready to go to work and help out. What fun that would be.

You go man, and have a great time doing it.

This is the cave,or more correct the room for the shop/cave.

I took 2 hours with help from my girlfriénd to remove all the old stuff in the room so now i just haft to wait for one of my friends so i can get some help to carry down the heavy stuff.

WUHUUUUUU that would say i am ready to built in a short time :D:D:D

Thomas that is a great cave.
It will also make your home more energy efficient as it will add another layer of insulation
and your workshop will get free heat.
I’m enjoying the fun that you are all having with this project.
have det sjovt
