When I built my shop, like so many others, I simply ran out of money to do everything I wanted like windows. I wound up making 3 windows, all very small and framed in the hole but now I broke the nbank and bought one window…....4 to go.

I love the view


now my outlaws cant sneak up an me, I can see who’s coming

Wow! I love the natural light. You could grow fruits and vegtables in there too!

Thanks…........nothing like natural light and the window opens to a small greenhouse. On a cold but sunny day, I can open the window and get some free heat.

I was thinking of putting canaries in that GH, let them in the shop and when they drop dead I know its time to leave?

25 years in what I call a concrete bunker, no windows, no natural light and when outside, nothing but more concrete and ashpal, traffic. smog

in comparison, the view is beautiful

Roman, this is a nice addition to your shop. If I have my choice I would rather work under natural lighting any day. The view is wonderful. But you can keep the snow. I am just not as fond of shoveling the driveways anymore as I used to be. :)

Roman I great addition. And some nice windows.

Roman I was an an new acquaintence a while back and he was showing me how he got into his shop from his living room.

He lifted the window and crawled into the shop. He’s 83 years old. It keeps him from having to go outside to get to the shop.

Needless to say he is not married.

Amazing view. I’m not sure if I could get any work done if that was the view from my shop.
