My new garrage-workshop building was completed about 2 months ago, but was able to take a few shots of the outside views only yesterday. During the 3day stay, I was fully occupied doing compound clearing and cleaning, measuring & cutting the staircase treads and dry fitting.
Beside that I also have an old armorie (made in May 1969) with missing drawer, broken legs and faded finish that needs my attention.
Phew! a lot of work awaiting.
Time is really scarce when we have a lot things to do. I feel its no longer running, its flying nowadays.

Ok here are some of the pics that tell what is what.

Thank you for looking.

Great looking shop. Wish I had a space like that at my house. Can’t wait to see more.

Great looking shop, and just far enough from the house to be left undisturbed.
I really wanted to have a 2 story shop, but they said something about zoning. Silly rules.

Thanks everyone for your kind words, encouragement and inspiring expectation!
Lew, when we have one dedicated shop we arent in hurry to clean up all the mess before next one.

Youre right WoodSparky, it is located just by the main roadside (a strategic location for the burglars) and 2hrs drive away from the house I’m staying. I don’t think there is a safe house now as when I was a teenager.

Thanks again Lew, BW, a1Jim, bentlyj, grizzman, Chris Wright, Splinterman, WoodSparky and everyone.

I am glad to see that you are finally able to get in there and start making some sawdust. I won’t be long until you can start having some fun in there. :)

Hey, there is something just wrong about having a shop that looks that nice on the outside! :-)
