My shop I built from 95% leftover/found materials( barns,corncribs,etc). I got some finishing to do but It is now workable.Downstairs is the wood & metal shop while upstairs is electronics & finishing.

Thanks Uncle John! I really care about the things I build & wanted the shop my stuff comes out of to reflect that.

WOW.  I saw the inside photos first.  Now I have shop envy and admiration.  Shop, playhouse, hideout.   Wonderful.

Thanks, I feel blessed to see alternate uses for things that others throw away.

Wow man! Great work! I too am building a new shop w/ found materials. I could only dream of making something this good looking!

Top notch building, job well done. I am also curious on the inside look/layout.

Well Tony, I am totally in love with it man! Coolest workshop I have ever seen, I can see why it would be a great place to spend time my friend!
