Part 1: New Workshop Construction - Part 1

06-25-2011 12:17 AM by JKBogle | 10 comments »

This is part one of the construction of my new 16’ x 20’ workshop. This project has been in the planning stage since last fall. The theme of this build is to save money and build wisely.

Part 5: Rafters & Roof Sheathing
