Starting the Workshop

Here's the location


Here's the First Delivery of Timber
And, for those that missed it, here's the plans I drew up of what I intend to build. 


The timber in the top photograph will make the 'skeleton' at bottom left of plan.

  6. Love the drawings. Is it somewhere in the region of a 12ft x10ft building?
    Trying to figure out if you are going to use the base which is already there or tear it out and pour a foundation? I rather like the gentle curve and that led me to noticing there is also a slope to be addressed. This is a pleasure for you to do - right?
    With your heart enjoying a little roguish moment here and there, I know you will
    make sure you are careful. We don't want anything to happen to our wonderful artist friend!

    1. Its ended up 15ft x 12ft, Julie so you weren't far out - a good eye!
      The paving slabs are on a concrete base so there will be no need for foundation. The slope is an optical illusion caused by my inept photography :) This is pleasure indeed: working with wood (and metal) surpasses all else in the pleasure-stakes.

      The heart has to learn to live with me, Julie, no concessions ... I live the way I always have, but I work shorter hours these days. Thank you for your kind thoughts though.
