Mike,

Very nice shop, rustic, practical and something reflects who you are both in character and skill. Beautiful winter scene from outside and a very inviting shop.

I wish I had the space, knowledge and skill to do the same.

Mike, as I said in your shop post you have a really nice shop space. I think that it is wonderful that you have the skill and time to build it yourself. This puts a lot of “you” into the space. The picture with 10” of snow is gorgeous but I’ll let you keep the snow over there. Ten inches would shut us down and, anymore, I just don’t enjoy shoveling driveways like I used to. :)

That’s a great shop, Mike. I hope you’ve got a security system on it….that wall of wood must be worth a fortune!

thats one dream shop for many of us (me included). looks like it’s in the back of your lot (or middle)? is there a convenient way to get the lumber in there?

Welcome to lumberjocks Mike! Great shop, I am jealous. By the way, I am in Westover Hills, and my son (Pebblecreak) is in Brandermill.

Great looking shop. The only problem is, It is not sitting in my back yard. Great job! One to be proud of! Thanks for posting.

God Bless

That’s a nice structure you built. Is it heated? There’s one thing missing. A rocker on the porch so you can rock n’ whittle.
