These are some pics of the garage/shop/briar patch I am building next to my house. This is in addition to the regular garage. This one is mine! 28'x28'

This is the view out of the top dormer. This is where my reloading bench will be. The view is of my back yard. The house is off to the right.

This is a view of the dormer and "front" of the building. House and street are to the left.

Here is the "front, side" The view coming up the driveway

This shows the loft opening to the left (look up).

This building is for being a man; displaying dead amimals, working on trucks/tractors/guns/bicycles/ammo...

Now if the wife ever threatens to throw you out of the house you can counter with...

"Where's the down side in that"

Nice new home away from home

Thanks everyone. I'll keep everyone posted as it is finished.

I hired the contractor who built my house, and he is doing it in trade for one of my 87 Ford Bronco IIs I restored. I just buy materials at the kind price and do the unskilled grunt work, alot of the framing, roofing, all the electrical and plumbing...

All in all, the cost is about the same as an economy car. Since I prefer old trucks and cash, I don't have any payments to make. That allowed me to save the money for the building.

tagging for future pics. That is sweet!!
Might look into something similar myself!

Dont make the mistake of installing a telephone in there. Carry a portable out for the calls you need to make from there.
Link Posted: 9/25/2004 5:41:38 PM EDT
looks nice. don't forget this thread when you get it finished, we want to see how nice it looks with paint and shingles.

You need a sign like the one from the little rascals. It said "he man woman haters club"!
Link Posted: 9/26/2004 10:22:02 AM EDT
I love it! Can you tell us more about it? Did it come as a kit or did you design it yourself? Total cost? Will it have power/water and heating/AC???
