Shop down IIII?

Shop down IIII

Yes GOOD NEWS, I’m back in the shop!
The shop is not up and running, but I’m back and a giant step for Mads, but a small step before done. ;-)
Let’s jump right in.

Here are the shop on the 28 December and how it look at new years eve.
The new massive ash floor are beautiful and giving warmth to the shop.

Put a table, just to be able to be there a little before my stuff returned.
And were there at new years eve drinking champagne.

Can’t wait for the stove to return also.
Only little details now are missing and a few less small.
I’m quite tired of the contractor to be honest, the communication has been really bad the last month, but I stay with a smile and keep the stress of the door this way.

Here the kitchen back in place.

Back room.

Slept there one night, now on a blow up, since I decided to skip the beautiful alcove.

The third of January the movers arrived with all my stuff.
Here in the morning it started.

Eight hours later and a tired MaFe!
The wall are back and the front shop almost in place.
The back room are a chaos, with boxes up to the celling.
Kitchen and bathroom almost there.

Now I just wait to see the contractors face when he come tomorrow to finish…
He will have a lot of moving around to do, but that’s to morrow. ;-)

UPDATE this same evening:
(Just passed the shop with the better camera).

The shop room, I can now use it.

Tool wall. Big smile.

Bathroom, now in white.

Wauuu so much brighter now.

Just cleaned up the kitchen tonight.

Small entrance…

Back room.

Ok, a little way to go here, but it is going to be better than before and that is what matters.

Best thoughts,

Congrats Mads!

The floors are gorgeous .. looking forward to seeing the progression of the shop. I envy your space.
Today I start work on cleaning out my barn to make it into a workshop of my own (instead of a huge storage space filled with junk) ..

Hopefully this summer I can find a couple of hours to swing by and see the place in person! :)


-- Thanks! Dave ...

Boxes wrapped and piled everywhere. Sounds like Christmas Eve, only MUCH BETTER!!!
...every box you open will be something you really need and something you really want and will use.

...and not a single Necktie in the lot. ;-)

Happy New Year and Happy New Shop!!!
