« Part 17: The next stage...Pros and Cons Part 18 of Life as an Amateur Woodworker series Part 19: Work is underway »

The work on the house is coming to an end, and then the work begins to build the workshop, they are already digging out the footings:

Unfortunately, I have had to reduce the size of the Shop to 6m x 3.5m, however the intention is to cover the parking area, which will give me an area three times the size, so the Shop itself will become the area for machinery.

Getting there…slowly!

Don’t do like me. Didn’t go the extra mile in my floor. If you plan on being there for awhile, overbuild! I did a new reinforced concrete floor for my machine shed extension and I sealed it. No problems with this part of the shop.

One step at a time gets us to the top of the ladder. :-)

Hi Jim, don’t I know it, but this is work done by others, then it is my turn!!!

Thanks Tom, I don’t think this shop will be going far, it is being built on top of the base of the old Finca, it took them two days to dig out the bit you can see, so I think we have gone for overkill, but as you say, think strong!
