I don’t want to brag, but if there’s one time a person deserves to be proud, it’s finally achieving their new shop after working in a shops the size of a garden shed for the better part of 18 Years. This new building is 1200 square feet so it’s not a monster but it’s sized right for me. I just moved in, hence the extreme cleanliness. Hopefully I will be able to keep it that way.

    It also has an 8x8 bathroom with shower so guest can stay over.

    We subbed out the basic framing and construction of the building, the Concrete, plumbing and insulation. Between my husband, my dad and my father in law, they did 80% of the work inside. I have some really great men in my life.

    Very nicely done! I'm sure it will be a pleasure to work in that setting. Nice design with added thought to the future it appears. I'm looking to build one soon and I had some similar thoughts about ceiling height, garage door options, finished floors and central work tables. You must be quite pleased.

    Thanks so much everyone. It has just been a dream to work in so far. I’ve not had running water, never had proper heating (just poor insulation and a space heater) and I’ve not been able to showcase any mounts to customers for years. This is like a dream come true.

    The walls are not curved, that’s just what an iPhone does when you take a panoramic photo.
