« Part 3: Still waiting! Part 4 of My long awaited shop series no next part

Well, the snow came and wouldn’t go away! So this has been an unusually long process, but, at last progress has been made. I decided that I had waited long enough for the snow to go and got the shovel out!

Those panels are here somewhere!

Kitting Out Begins!

Fitting out begins

This has so far been a very long process, but I am in at last! I start a job tomorrow for a client to build some storage. I will make all the cabinets in my new shop! Hooray! I still need to build my benches and install the power, but it is a dry and reasonably warm space to work for now. So hopefully I will be able to post some new projects, and, the progress of the shop fit soon!

Thanks guys.

patron, I had a look at Garys’ blog, and that’s what I did! Not sure why they didn’t load first time.

Tom, the shop is 6metres by 3.7metres, about 20feet by 12feet I think! I made all the panels myself to my own design. The concrete foundation was already there from a previous garage which you can see in my previous blogs.

This link should show you the full progress of the construction (I think!)

Thanks for the comments
