    Default A major step closer to reality!

    The dream of a wood shop (and other stuff shop) took a big step toward becoming a reality today!

    It looks like a place where the grandkids can draw with chalk, ride bikes and other fun stuff but what do I know?

    Well as long as they leave the power tools alone they can have at it!

    I've got a back patio where they can do all that stuff with #1 Mimi....

    And, that white 2" pipe sticking up back in the corner is the vent for the septic line. A throne room in my home away from home. I may not even put up walls just so I can keep the riffraff out!

    Wondering what the pad sizes is? As it appears to be about 20'-foot by 20'foot. I'm sure you have re-bar in the pad? Do not see any tie-downs along the edges. An edging wall of bolts popping up every 3 to 4-foot. 1/2 stud up 4'-inches to fix 2/4-wooden walls during high winds? Unless you're going with block construction? I have always used wood. I do see some re-bar on the far left, but was wondering inside flooring? The PVC Pipe looks to be off the pad and not in the pad? Trust me I know how hard doing this can be and my hat is off to you sir as this is a major big step in MAN CAVE workshop lol outstanding job well done. GOOD JOB!!

    The Wilderness for myself has always been a place, I can escape to and discover my stronger self. A true builder of self-confidence and skills, I never knew we're possible within me to achieve. A tough taskmaster breakdown my self-limits and barriers. I have overcome and found my inner self, leaving behind only the old skin, blood, and sweat, having won a newer stronger self. The Wilderness shows me a better reflection of myself.

    Looks like a good start. I had a small shop in the shed. Then I put up a climbing wall. Then I stores some chairs in there. Then I stored some seats for the Jeep in there. Then I stored 5 or 6 surfboards. sigh.

    Pad is 32x41. Building (that I just ordered) is 30x40. No the vent is not in the pad. The only thing in the pad is the toilet flange. It is a prefab metal building delivered and installed, TT&L for a tad over $12K. This building is for saws, planer, jointer, etc., Mower, 4wheeler, equipment parking, lumber storage, tools, etc. and fishing gear overflow from the "other" uh... office.

    Garage doors on the southeast and north sides for air flow in the summer.

    A little update.

    Early in February it arrived.

    Got some stuff moved in, still most of the wood tools not. Waiting on my electrician to come tie in to the meter loop so I can start running wire for lights and tools. As soon as I get lights and power I can start building workbenches and shelves.

    But, it gets a little better every day.

    That's awesome. I'm so jelly (I heard that was a word that is now used to express a bit of envy, not one's physical appearance).

    I wanna be jelly, too!

    Actually, that's an impressively cool looking shop!
    True enough, my final home is still out there, but this is most certainly my home range and I love it. I love every rock I fall off and tree I trip over. Even when I am close to dying from exhaustion, a beautiful sunset doesn't lose it's power to refresh and inspire me and that, in itself, is enough to save me sometimes.

    There's another garage door on the far side of the other end so I'll have a drive through for mowers and other vehicles. This near side will have a workbench and wood working tools (table saw, band saw, etc). On the far side will be a (yet to be built) lean to to cover the boat and the saw mill. There's even a toilet on the inside under that window. I have to wait for the remodel on #1 wife's bathroom to get my toilet. Shops do not come without a steep price). Fish cleaning table will be on this side under the window.
