Spent 20 years in the Army and when I retired in 2005 decided it was time for a workshop. Have had a blast in it since. Thanks to my wife, son and my brother we did everything except the cement work on the building.

Looks great! How large is it? Did you put any plumbing or any interior walls in it. Just curious.

Nothing like a workshop to keep your blood running hot. Now the projects can start rolling out. Good one, and Thanks!

Sailor it is 24×32 I put up drywall on walls and ceiling, but that’s about it no seperating walls. No plumbing inside since the woods is real close :-)

That really did turn out nice! It looks like you can get some serious stuff done in there.
