This is the shop. Obviously not a show place but functional for small jobs. The footprint is 20’ by 24’ and at some point in the future I am planning an addition. My near future plans are to start replacing some of the 2×4 and flakeboard constuction with some enclosed cabinets and finished surfaces on the cut off table and back bench.
This was an old carriage house that was falling over. After the insurance company told me to knock it down or fix it up, I took option B. Had to jack the place up, replace the footer and sill plate and set it back down. Then the old dirt floor was dug down a couple feet and a new insulated plywood floor was installed. I wired the place, put in an electrical service, insulated and hung some drywall that a friend gave me. The place has a long way to go.
I’m still a ways off from having all the neccessary tools but each year I get something I didn’t have the year before that helps me do a little more. I’m looking foward to the day when I have more square footage and tools to fill it all up. In the mean time it’s one job at a time.
