    I thought I post some pics of my workshop I have been building for awhile virtually by myself with some help at times from the wife and boy.The shop measures outside by 16'x30' were I will have a 16'x7' as my office /model room.I posted a pic of model cabinet sometime ago will it's in here built in as part of the wall to the office.The rest of the shop will be woodwork and one corner for my reloading.Well maybe it will be of interest some.Kevin

    But the nice thing about Hardi boards are they will last forever. Good call on picking those.

    No I am not just stuff I have learned,watched and observed over the last 20 or so years.I am in the automotive industry and have been for 26yrs this is the reason I like woodwork;wood is forgiving you mess it up grab another piece.I will be glad when I get to the point where I start making my cabinet doors.I am going to do some kind of ground work for the 1/32 1/24 in wood planks and sod on the bottom of the cabinet.

    Well an update is due.I have spent thus far this Christmas week about 40hrs in the shop and my son put in about 12-14hrs(ceiling sheet).Today starts the sanding :mad: my favorite job.I had to take down all the lights of course.The shop was not going to have a ceiling but just to much heat in the summer,there goes the wood loft.This shop is better insulated than my house though.I have no problem getting the shop on one side down to below 60' and the office down to 50' and it's 75' outside ;).The blue and white boxes on the wall by the door are the laminate flooring :) I buy it a box at a time as cash permits.In pic #5 is the N side of the office thats is were the 2 1/72 scale model cabinets go either side of the window just like I have in the house now.i can't wait no more 'Honey about doing this blab blab blab...." from across the house and I am virtually deaf in one ear.You know what that means I got to stop get up and go talk to her haha.Now she is going to come talk to me a radio,ice and Hunter will be the amendnities.Kevin
