For a good friend I designed and build in two weeks a wooden workshop for his much loved hobby.
The concept is mondern with a traditional touch.
Extended windows create extra interior space at workbench height and optimize the flood of daylight.
The exterior is cladded with thermo treated wood and free of care for the next twenty woodworking-years.

Like the design, it is very much in harmony with the house – a nice and very bright addition.

How did you get enough sunny days (no rain) in a row to do such nice work ;-P

I too like the design and look. What a great investment in your friendship!
By the way can we be friends I need a great space like that.
Is it open to the ceiling or did you end up dropping it down?
Thanks for sharing!!!
