« Part 1: Journey to a new shed and woodworking shop for me!!!! Part 2 of The transformation from Garage to woodworking shop has begun!!!! series no next part

Ok ladies and gentleman… It has been awhile since I posted the first one. Got the roof on with a little help from my bother in law and a friend of his, they work cheap. But it is dried in, and all that is left is some facia work, put the stairs in on the inside, and put the ramp up so I can get the motorcycle in and the lawnmower. Just finding the time is the key…. Pictue 1 is the front outside, Picture 2 one of the 2 lofts that will be tied together when I put the stairs in, picture 3, my ladder dont know why it here, but its a little giant,, love the thing, pictue 4 is another outiside picture. Enjoy. anyone who is in the area feel free to stop by. The garage is starting to look empty as some stuff is starting to move in to its new home so I can have room. Just started my grandson’s first birthday present today, but that is another post, Have a great week y’all. Thanks for looking. Gary

Only one thing better than a new tool is a bigger shop.

Good job Gary. This looks remarkedly like the one I built in Ohio a few years ago (12×16x13’5 h) I would suggest you think about putting a window in the end gable and a screened vent in the opposite gable. Adds light and cross ventilation in the summer.

Congratulations on getting your new shop. You’ll like that loft for wood storage.
