Unfortunately I lost some pictures of clearing the underbrush and the trees that needed to come down. This was the most convenient site that I could find for the shop. Unfortunately it required a substantial foundation because of the slope which added to the cost somewhat, but in the long run I think that it will pay off because it is easily accessible to the basement and main floor of the house. It is also near the barn where I will be able to store some, lumber, jigs, and hardware.
The footing for the foundation walls had to be stepped because of the slope. The shop construction is being done under a permit and is being inspected at every key step.
The foundation wall will be 6 ft tall on the lower back left corner (diagonally toward the far corner as seen in the picture above)
The picture above shows the view from beyond the lower part of the footings looking back up toward the back part of the house where the garage is.
In the picture above you can see a view from the back yard of the forms that have been erected for pouring the walls.
This is another view of the forms from the front of the shop.
And a view as seen from a view that parallels the side of the barn. There is a 6 ft. wide door in this side of the barn which will be close to the front roll up door in the shop.
This is another view of the back left corner of the foundation wall.
The picture above shows the highest corner of the walls from the back side.
And above is another view looking up toward the barn from the lower part of the site.
Part 3 of this blog will be about the pouring of the walls. Thanks for reading my blog.
