« Part 1: Episode 1 - Introduction Part 2 of The Timber Kid Podcasts series Part 3: Workbench (part 1) »

You may have seen me building my new workshop blog during the summer so in this video I have created a slide show, showing you the building of my workshop from start to finish. It is 20’x12’ with 13’ cathedral ceilings, in a future episode, I will do a tour inside my workshop, to show you around.

I would like to thank all of my friends who helped me build it!

Callum -

Very cool shop! You are going to make a bunch of your LJ buddies jealous! Keep up the good work.

Great slideshow! There’s nothing quite like having your own space to inspire creativity! Can’t wait to see what you’ve done on the inside! Thanks for sharing.

That’s a great looking shop. I especially like the big window in the front. Did you do the designing you self? Thanks for the vid. Can’t wait to see the inside.

I decided to make the window a feature and I designed the whole lot in my head :)

Callum! What a great job! You inspire us all! Wish the wife would let me build the same in our backyard… Oh well, I can live the dream vicariously through you now! Look forward to seeing more out of your shop.

Hi Callum;

Great job.

To everyone that wants to build their own shop, but can’t get the okay from the other half, the process is rather simple.

Keep taking over more and more of the space your in now. Pretty soon, you will get “kicked out”, and your other half will insist you build your own space.

Here’s where it gets tricky. LIE about how much it will cost. (later, claim you can’t believe how badly you “estimated the actual cost”).

Worked for me.

Oh. It helps if you build her / him something nice, once in a while.

You have some cool parents allowing you to build your shop in the back yard. I agree with Napaman add about 2-3 seconds to each slide. Some music during the slide show would be nice too.
