Had a couple 2x’s left over, so I thought I’d add a house. :)

The only real change from the CAD model was the salvaged arch-top window—6’ tall and 150 bucks

The appropriate category for this one seemed to be BOX. Big or small, they serve the same somewhere-to-keep-my-stuff purpose.

Now you’ll have to update your shop photos in your profile. Looks great, John.

Looks wonderful, can’t wait to see whats happening inside.
My shop can be in the garage… lol.
So fine with the trees behind, wish you a endless number of good hours there.

John, it looks as though you have plenty of elbow room inside and out. I expect to see an ongoing posts of projects as you complete your homestead.

As an architect, I thought you’d like this one, Mads. I love the beauty of barns and farmhouses in Central Ohio that grew together solely for the purpose of convenience. So my past few houses have been a celebration of these accidental collisions.

Very nice addition to the shop, it is always good to have a nice place to eat, relax and sleep after having
fun in the shop. Thank you for sharing. If you have a couple more 2Xs left over, Monte will probably want
to borrow them to build a shop.

The shop really did come first. The house was an afterthought.

Very nice indeed.
Don’t post any shop pictures as I will definitely get shop envy!

John in 3 weeks:

“How the hell am I supposed to rip this 31 foot long board in here?!? I need a BIGGER SHOP!!!”

Just kidding. Hopefully you won’t need any more space for another 6 months at least. Hehe

Awesome shop!

This post has caused me to consider a martini and a Xanax before I look at my little basement shop this weekend.

Ok the martinis was already planned.

Nice stuff you have there John.

Thanks, guys !!! YOU SUCK seems to be the common thread. :)

I didn’t know if I should post this as a woodworking project, but I did cut the rafter tails with my Bosch jigsaw equipped with a Piranha blade. Guess that counts.
