Wish it was mine. Looks wonderful and it’s in a great setting too. The anticipation must be exhilarating.

Well do I remember this stage of my shop. No more worries about getting sealed up before the weather hits. Time to relax and finish up the inside.
I’m really happy for you.

Get siding on the long walls while the weather holds then under cover for everything else.

Looking good

Looking real good. Since I do not see any pipes sticking out of the roof, I am guessing electric heat,
but I have been wrong before. Woke up to snow on the ground in Missoula this mornilng, so I am
guessing you have an inch or two up there. If you can not work or play in the shop, you might be
able to go crosscountry skiing. Thank you for sharing.

I like the generous overhangs. It’ll be a good place to air dry lumber, or just get a little fresh air.

I’m betting you can’t wait to move in it. What kind of siding are you planning for it?

Nice design with the overhangs. It kinda looks like an old train depot station.

Nicely done! Maybe I missed it, what are your interior dimensions? 10’ ceiling?

I envy your straight walls (mine is built in my barn loft, have angled walls – hard to mount cabinets…)
