no previous part Part 1 of My long awaited shop series Part 2: Some photos »

My workshop has been in the design stages for over 2 years now. I have been collecting components for over 2 years though! The structure is a 15mm pine weather board/shiplap outer skin, foil faced bubble wrap insulated building paper layer, 89mm*38mm CLS frame with glasswool insulation, and a 11mm osb inner skin.

I finished cutting the roof timbers today and took delivery of the final load f weather board… HOORAH!

All i need to do now is demolish my existing concrete monstrosity, fit the wall plate and erect the new frame!

I’ll post pictures as soon as i set up flickr!

Sounds like you’re to start building a stand alone workshop.
Now I guess, (as I experienced it before) you begin to feel the wind of thrilling, anxiety, nervousness, fun and enjoying moment. Awake you would think of the shop, asleep you dream of the shop.
Good luck, and wish you all ok, all the best.
