Topic tags/keywords: workshop cellar

Completing a move from one house to another. used to have a covered back porch I could use as a bench. Not any more. Place does have a cellar, basement would invoke too big of a picture. A $.05 tour of the Dungeon that will turn into a workshop, someday…

after coming down the Grand Staircase into the cellar…

one looks to the left, past the washer, and dryer. Those windows are the only two down there. Then, turning slowly to the right..

more junk piles that I have to organize. Still turning to the right..

And a look at the “Back 40” as in square feet. Still turning to the right..

the remains of a “Root Cellar’ and a coal bunker. Very few lights down there. This might take awhile…

Maybe by next Halloween, I will have it done????

It does not look like much of a challenge for a man as resourceful as you Bandit. Keep us posted.

Treat it like one of your planes Bandito and itll be done in now time at all. Ive got a similar setup, 1 window shop shared with the furnace, oil tank, and hot water heater. It aint much but its home thats for darn sure.

somehow the washer and dryer and my workshop in the same room just wouldn’t work.
