Part 1: Leaking Roof

I thought I’d share a few unique features of my “new” workshop while on the long road to getting it really workable. I’m sure that some of you have one or more of these features, but I thought I’d share my Man-Cave with you anyway in a short blog series. Firstly, This was a Fish-Farm barn with open topped ponds, so a leaking roof was no problem to the previous occupants. As we all know, this doesn’t work too well for a woodworking area. I’ve h...
