« Part 11: The annex? Part 12 of New Shop - from the ground , up. series Part 13: Cooling the Workshop »

A few pics to update this chronicle. Lights, huge workbench, awning, and concrete apron all recently done. I waited 2-1/2 weeks for curing then moved the camper in. That’s how the whole thing started anyway. If you buy a camper…... voila, a new shop!

I have a couple of loads of soil to move around after building this thing, so the dream of a tractor is there. In my dream, not necessarily old, but one with a front end loader and a blade for the rear. It seems, I dream in orange or green a lot!

Greetings, helluvawreck aka Charles.
Thanks for the link. I just checked out your shop build blog and WOW! to you too! I did not finish the inside, just painted the framing before construction and the sheeting inside after. That’s quite a spread of tools that you have to do “research” for your business. How has organization of space been? looks like you’ve had a year since your last shop build entry. I was also happy to see the link to hand tools since that’s the direction I’m flirting with currently. I just ordered a few chisels and a couple of pull saws and plan to build a workbench this calendar year. I noticed a fine looking bench in your stable. a Sjoberg?
Best 2 U, curliejones
