    How I spent the summer

    I have been visiting this forum for several months and have enjoyed very much seeing all the wonderful shops as well as the conversations about them.
    Woodworking, remodeling and building is a hobby for me so I am sure you will see a lot of things in my pictures that look a little amatueristic.
    The shop is 26'x34' the lower level will be used as a garage and small maintenance shop, the main level will be my wood working shop and the upper level will be a hangout for my grandsons.
    My goal was to get finished with the exterior before winter set in and as you can see I came pretty close. I am looking forward to working on the inside this winter.
    I am not very good with a computer so I hope I have posted the pictures correctly.

















    I look forward to posting more pictures as time goes by and Hope everyone has a happy prosperous and healthy new year!

    still sings!

    That's going to be an awesome shop space, Mike. I've lived in smaller houses.

    The attic space is a great bonus. Playroom for the grandsons now, man cave / pondering space for you later.

    Henderson, KY, anywhere near Shawneetown, IL??
    Man that is one serious building/shop. Bigger than my house! Keep those pictures coming. So, river froze up? Do they run icebreakers down it to keep it open for barge traffic?

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
