Was playing around on the computer and thought I would put together a little video of my biggest project to date; my Shop.

These pictures were taken from 4-16-2006 through 7-30 2006 when I moved into it. They were taken in sequence through all phases of construction.

Enjoy.

Wow-my dream shop.
Have a few questions.
Are the PVC pipes sticking out of the floor for dust collection?
Do you use the attic for storing wood, tools, etc?
Did you do the construction work yourself, or sub it out?
Can you share what the approximate cost/sq ft turned out to be?

I’m planning on building something similar when I move, and always collecting information on the experience of others.
Thanks in advance for the help.
