United States

Once I decided that I was going to build my dream shop, I spent several months looking for the perfect building plan to fit my tastes and more importantly, my needs. I wanted a building that had lots of character and one that would compliment my house. After many months of searching with no results I gave up and decided to design something on my own using Sketchup. This is what I came up with.

Wow, that is amazing! And this is your work shop? You are a women that knows what she wants and has alot of confidence. I’m sure it’s going to turn out beautiful. Knowing what is going to come out of this after it is finished is going to be amazing. I can’t wait to see your next project.

Now this is a shop that I certainly would enjoy working in!! It looks like you are going to have plenty of room in there and I would say that most of us would love to have this much natural light in our shops.

Keep us posted on your shop’s evolution.

That’s looking too pretty to be a shop. That looks like it would be a great building to show off your work, like a gallery…

Looks like a show home!

You will really enjoy all the natural light and I like the high ceilings.

What a fine dream shop. You must be really excited to see it coming together. Will any part of it be a showroom for clients to view your work?
