Well here’s my shop, which I love. Not fancy, most every piece was found, given or scavenged from where I worked. All carried on the roof of my car on my home made roof rack. That’s what grandpa always did. Built over a ten year period because you don’t always find the right board at the right time. LOL. Only things I bought were the wiring and roofing and nails. It’s thirty feet by twelve with a sixteen foot area, with an eight foot covered porch and a six foot fire wood storage area on the end. I’ll make some better shop photos soon.

You have an interesting shop in which to work. It does look like you have a lot going on in there and, you have put a lot of yourself into its construction. Nice shop.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting with you.

Execellent shop! I do believe the creation of a shop can be an art form all in itself.

Like Dennis said, Heaven “is” a code free building zone. I never could have pieced this together if I had to pass inspection. LOL. Will say it’s working just fine. Loving it!

Your workshop reminds me of my Grand-fathers hidden gem of a place that had so much good stuff tucked away in a very similar tranquil setting where I spent many happy hours.

I can tell you right now that your shop is just the kind of place that I love to room around in. I love it. It looks like a lot of peace and quiet right outside the door, too. I went to a shop a while back that was fixin’ to go up for auction – it was a blacksmith shop. I never saw so much stuff sitting in such a small building. It was real good stuff though. I would have given anything to be able to have bid on it. Your shop’s got plenty of room. You have a right to be proud of it.

Nice to stumble onto a neighbor who like wood. Your shop looks cozy and the carvings you do are excellent. I wish I could get started on that since I like the artsy side of it. I like to create things without too much planning…..........
