    Disclaimer for anyone that get's bored easily , this could take a while .

    So after many years of daydreaming about it , I put Operation Build the Workshop into action

    Technically this started last year and then I put things on hold for the winter but I suddenly have a bunch of spare time on my hands so away we go again .

    I've had a "temporary" storage contraption in my back 40 for about 15 years , basically a wood framework with a heavy tarp over it to store assorted lumber , formwork , concrete accessories , etc .

    So job #1 was to find a home for all the shit I had stored in there so I could tear that down and build the new building in the same area .

    I got my 8x20 container moved back to that site to store the more moisture sensitive materials

    Here is the old shack and container

    upload_2020-5-16_16-48-43.jpg

    I built some storage racks in the container to maximize my storage plus allow me to keep my fir materials and cedar materials separated

    upload_2020-5-16_16-50-46.jpg

    Full 2" random width VG Fir on the bottom

    upload_2020-5-16_16-51-42.jpg

    Cedar materials up top

    upload_2020-5-16_16-52-19.jpg


    and I rigged the end so I could store and easily get at my tablesaw and chopsaw by just opening the left door

    upload_2020-5-16_16-53-30.jpg


    and as always , you don't realize how much shit you have till you have to move it all haha

    upload_2020-5-16_16-54-58.jpg

    upload_2020-5-16_16-55-21.jpg


    That was the container material moved for the most part

    Next up I still had a shit ton more cedar to store so I improvised a lumber rack on the side of my existing fence line for all the 3/4 and 5/4 cedar boards

    upload_2020-5-16_16-58-9.jpg


    upload_2020-5-16_16-58-28.jpg

    Under that rack I managed to tuck away my collection of clear cedar 6x6

    upload_2020-5-16_16-59-28.jpg

    Stuffed these beauty bookmatched clear cedar planks in the container on some shelf brackets up high

    upload_2020-5-16_17-0-49.jpg

    upload_2020-5-16_17-1-12.jpg

    upload_2020-5-16_17-1-46.jpg


    The not so precious cedar 6x6 is roughing it outdoors

    upload_2020-5-16_17-2-53.jpg

    and finally , my wife made me make a gate before I was allowed to start so the neighbourhood didn't have to witness my crap while I built the shop

    upload_2020-5-16_17-5-15.jpg

    So ends chapter 1

    Footing pour was in October of last year , I then got busy at work and with the rainy , dark season setting in I basically shut down work on the shop until last week when I resumed work on the foundation walls




    again , reinforced with 15m bar , 18" OCEW

    In this location the back wall of the shop carries on and becomes a retaining wall for future covered outside storage overhang

    we're bridging over a big tree root here , hence all the extra rebar



    and yesterday I did the pipework for my utilities into the shop for electrical main in , power out for septic pump and spare plus teleduct for cable / tel

    Looks great. If you haven't backfilled yet, I suggest you get some of this. It's a low cost and highly effective termiticide.

    I don’t think it’s going to be big enough already. You have a lot of stuff.

    Its 748 sqft inside with 408 sqft covered outside storage area . Its basically as big as would fit in the area I had to put it so once I start putting stuff back in there there's going to be a tool and lumber sale for my excess stuff

    For instance right now I have 3 portable tablesaws and 4 chopsaws and I intend to buy a new stationary tablesaw and a Kapex for this shop so its time to get rid of some excess , plus a lot of the cedar lumber is for a project that will use up most of it so its not going inside
