« Part 3: Finishing the rest of the walls Part 4 of Building the New Wood Shop series no next part

Well its been about four months since my last blog entry on framing the walls. The shop is now pretty much complete. All that is left now to do is decide where to build the benches and now to organize it. I’ll leave that for the next blog entry. It was quite a journey. I never would have imagined how much work it actually was being a first time builder. I read a ton of “how to books” and asked alot of questions to the Pros and had every little detail planned out . Well shall we proceed with the pictures? !Photobucket</Photobucketa>! !Photobucket! Well thats it for now, In my next entry I will have some pics of the shop fully finished with sophets,facia,gutters,lights and Hardi board siding! ( Very nice looking siding) Cheers

I hope to see you will be able to get in there soon and start making some sawdust.
How do you feel now? Nervous ? Anxious? .... I’ve gone through that…mixed feeling actually.

The shop is looking pretty good. I have always thought that a stand alone shop was the way to go.

What impresses me the most is the grass around the construction sight. Usually the mud is ankle deep in every job site I have worked on. Looks great!
