Is this just for show or does the owner actually do work in the shop? I see no sawdust.

Seriously – That is a shop to envy.

Ok, I am working on a new shop and I just hope I can make it look half that good. That is really something to shoot for.

It feels ossified, like a museum diorama. There’s no warmth at all, no history, nothing that triggers a story.

It’s a Real Estate Ornament.

Did you see a broom or a trash can anywhere?

Don, my bad for missing the Katrina part. It brings a lot of understanding to the whole picture. I feel differently about it now.

Lee, my initial reaction was similar to yours, but changed when I saw his remark about being hesitant to be thought ‘showing off’ by posting his pics.
But I’m sooooooo envious – my wife won’t let me build a BIG shed on the back lawn!
