    Here is the shell for a workshop we built a few years ago. This was for my sugar daddy, at his previous house. It was supposed to be for his retirement, but then he bought a better house. I’m going to need to ask him whether he wants one for his new house.

    The shop area is 14’x30′, plus an additional 10’x16′ of overhang.

    Mark that looks incredible. Did you build yourself one while you were at it?

    Mark, did you do the doors? I absolutely love those doors. I would kill for a space like that.

    The doors are amazing. Really adds character to the space and some sophistication.

    Wow those doors caught my eye too. That would be a great shop space.

    I wish I could build one for myself, maybe someday.

    I did do the doors, though I tried to talk him out of it. They are not exactly weather proof. I wish that I had the Domino then.

    You can’t see from the pics, but I beleive that we put in 6 skylights.

    The Domino XL would have been good for that project. What kind of joinery did you use? I forgot — did you get the big Domino or the smaller one, Mark?

    I actually just used glue and timber locks, that I plugged.

    I got the small domino, but I see the XL in my future.

    Always build more shop than you need, you will grow into it and what was once big is now too small. I followed my advice 4 times and still outgrew it.

    Very nice work Mark ! I really like the design of the doors , it really sets it off nicely .

    Nice job Mark. I wonder what your new workshop is going to look like… Someday will be here soon.

    #101238

    That is definitely a beautiful shop Mark – and as others have said, those doors look amazing! Is it hard for the owner to get supplies into the shop since it seems like it is sorta up on a hill?

    You guys are very observant. Unless he builds a road up there, he will have to carry everything just as we had to carry all that material.

    Such is life in the mountains. Sometimes you just pick a spot and worry about the details later. The slab was already poured before we got involved.

    Maybe that’s why he bought the newer house.

    To me that would just be a great excuse to buy a Polaris with a wagon out back to haul with. That’s a selling feature.

    Exactly what I was thinking…just a reason to get another toy. I mean tool.

    Nice work, Mark!

    Not to much flooding, but there are mudslides.
