Out of the Fog....

....rises a shop. This is what the shop looks like after two days work by my cousin Troy and I. I'm very pleased with how far we got in just 2 days. Getting the rafters up and some plywood on the roof, it's really starting to take shape now. That's a 14/12 pitch on there; pretty darn steep. Whenever Troy gets a call while we're working, he tells the caller he's "here working on the church steeple." That steep roof is gonna help give me the look I want though, and will give quite a bit of storage up there. Hoping for good weather this weekend so we can get back on it.

It's going to be really nice. I am hoping to build a shop as well and I like your design. I plan to have a double door in order to move things in and out more easily?

Thanks Andy. I've had a lot of people ask me if I was going to put a garage door on my shop. That'd definitely ruin the look I'm going for. And I figure I'm building furniture; if I can't get it out of a 36" door of my shop, I probably can't get it into a house anyway. Your double door idea is a good one though. Much more attractive than a garage door.

Heck with all that space above, put in some attic fans and you could have a nice drying shed for your lumber.
