Our shop was built from a 1894 Summer Kitchen! It was originally attached to the house, but in 1914, was detached and spent most of its life as a small work shop for the farm. After new siding, doors, windows and roof, the inside was still bare old native timbers. So with the help of my better half, we insulated the walls and then instead of drywall, we chose to use elm cut from our own woods by my father in law!!! Very very heavy walls. The elm is over 1” thick. Our joke is if we get high winds or tornado, thats the building we are running to!
Our Wood Shed is now complete with just a few minor details to finish. But so happy to be in the new shop (1894). LOL
