My shop prior to restoration. A "drive-through" barn. It was leaning a few degrees to the left:


During restoration. First, I built the red metal 2-story shed (on the extreme left) on top of an existing ice-house foundation for storage. Then I started working on the barn/shop:


Phase one post restoration. The wooden shed to the left of the building was restored and moved to another location. The red building to the left of that is where I store my wood (second floor). The lower floor is full of dumpster-finds:


Moving the shed (on large pipe rollers)... my dog "Moses" (RIP) helping move. Pulling shed to new location with my 1962 Oliver 550. BTW, the shed is in much better shape that the pics might suggest. A lot of it was built with chestnut, which held up amazingly well:




Phase two (metal shop addition). I mostly work alone, so you can imagine why I have had no time in the shop for woodworking:

I agree with earlier comments - wow! What a huge undertaking and great workmanship. I also like the doors on the building to the left that you describe as lumber storage. Can't wait to see the projects once you have time for them.
