i am so excited and happy !
I got a new shop!
I live in an appartment in central Stockhom,Sweden. Not in the absolut central part, but central enough to have problems finding a place for me to do some woodworking.
i have a house in the country where i spend most of my weekends and holidays and i do have a workshop there but when i am at the country there is not much time to do woodworking. There is always something to fix and with a big garden, well… the time just flies away.
So i needed a space here in stockholm where i can escape the stress and world outside for a while and do some woodworking.
For about six months ago i found a free space in the basement. A room next to our laundryroom in our building was free and i asked if i could use it, they said – yes i could borrow it until anyone else wants to use it.
of course someone else wanted to use it, it didnt take long before the superintendent got questions about the room and i had to leave the room a few months ago.
The superintendent has now made it bookable for all to use.
but i needed something more permanent, i needed my very own woodshop. after advertising online and calling every landlord in the neighbourhood i almost gave up. nothing was avalible to a reasonable price.
And last week it happened, a free space in the basement in the building next to our, and the price was fair :)
I took it!
its not that big , actually it is small, but it is MY NEW WORKSHOP ! :)
4*4 meters 2 windows and just 50 meters away, it could not be better!
ok it looks a bit rough but it got the potential to become a wonderful creative shop
i cant express i words how glad i am, and i am so excited to start setting it up.
i will keep you updated.
