I’m new to LumberJocks and have enjoyed looking at all the projects and shops. I have seen a number of projects that have been built from scrap or recyled material. I haven’t seen any workshops that have been built from recyled material. Here are a few pix of my workshop that is nearing completion.

I was given an old house and I mean old. It had never had plumbing or electricity. It had already had much of the material torn off and removed but I saw that I could salvage enough material to build my shop. It is only 16 feet by 14 feet (size was based on the available length of joists, etc.). I put a storage loft above the shop area.

The first pix is of the old house as it looked in Nov. 2009 before I began dismantling it. The last pix is of the workshop as it nears completion.

This looks like it certainly is going to be an interesting shop. I am looking forward to seeing pictures of it when you get it finished and have your tools in place.

You did such a great job and what a setting. Your shop looks so inviting and friendly. l can see some real master pieces coming out of those doors.

You are one heck of a talented guy. This will make a nice shop. Are you going to store wood in the loft?

Thanks for all of the comments. The storage loft is for all kinds of things (junque) we don’t have room for in the house. I’ll try to post some pix when I get things all set up inside. It is moving slow due to the weather.
