My 12’ x 32’ Amish-built workshop was built off-site and moved to my property. I finished the wiring and have finished the walls to the point that I’m able to use the shop on a limited basis. I’m still waiting to have power run to the building (have had appointments with two electricians, but they are always too busy for my little job). Right now I’m running a heavy extension cord from the garage and can use my power tools on a limited basis.

This summer I was able to get it stained. I built steps, the flower planters and shutters. Now I’m just waiting for power.

Looks good from the outside. I can’t wait to see the inside after you’re finished with it :)

Hi Teri

Your new shop really looks great. Keep the pictures coming when you get it all done. I am in the process of planning a new shop in my 14 X 21 garage. If you go to my sight there is a floor plan that might give you some ideas. Good luck with your new shop.

Hello Teri (that’s my sister’s name BTW)

Looks like you are making good progress on the inside. Have you finished it yet?

I can see where you are going to spend most of you time. Looking forward to view the projects that will come out of it.

Looks like a nice place to work and a pretty area too. I hope it brings you hours of pleasure.
