Project Organized Home-Shop

Well I know I was supposed to have this posted earlier today, but it's been a busy day! This is the first day I've had a vehicle to drive in two weeks, so I had a few places to go! I'm still so thankful that we have a vehicle loaned to us for a while. I wanted to show you some pictures of the shop that my husband and I are building in the back yard. All in all we will have less than a thousand dollars into this building. That's everything...wood, siding, insulation, wiring, paint, lights..everything. He got a lot for free from friends or people he works with and around. If you were to buy just the building kit, not including wiring, insulation, or anything on the inside, it would cost almost $4,000. So this is a real blessing. We've needed one ever since we moved here to Georgia. Hubby had a nice one in Kansas, and that was hard to leave. He has so many tools...some for work and some for home. We had a carport on this house, but we enclosed it for more square footage inside the house over a year ago. Now he'll be able to rebuild the engine on my van, work some handy-man jobs for extra money when needed, and get his stuff OUT OF MY HOUSE! Our house...sorry honey. Plus, the little metal shed that he's been storing some of his tools in, will now be able to be used for my stuff. Christmas totes, outdoor decorations, all the big stuff that's really been cluttering up our house. That will free closet space in the house for school items, crafts, fabric, and etc. It's really going to make for a much more organized home! We aren't quite finished with the shop, but I'm going to show you some pictures of what we've got done so far!

Sorry about the smoke in the picture. We were burning the scrap wood in our fire pit.

I thought I had more pictures on the computer, but apparently they are still on the camera, so I'll post some more tomorrow! We have three sides on, plus the roof and it's shingles. Oh, and the front door is installed as well. So I'll post those tomorrow, and then later I'll post the third round. This spring I'll probably have to post a fourth round when we have the landscaping done around it! We plan on putting up some trellises and some brick flower beds around it to make it look a little nicer. I'm so excited about the whole thing, and so is hubby...even more so. He finally has a place to "get away" for a while and tinker!


  1. I am so happy for you. I'm looking forward to seeing it all finished. Have a great weekend. :)

  2. Before we even did our house my husband put up a pole barn! Your shop is looking good!

  3. Wow! I thought you guys were building a little shed, but this is a big building! I'm sure you're having fun working together to get this done. It's a great feeling of accomplishment when husband and wife work together, whether it's a home project or anything else. Such a blessing to have a partner in life to help out and to help us in turn.
