Yes I  have outgrown my little barn type 12x16 wood working shop.  Its in sad shape anyway. No room to store anymore supplies and build in the same space.   I am tired of moving things around to get to whatever work station I need to get at.

 So I took a big step and invested in a 18 x 40 metal building  18 x 30 enclosed and 10x18 as a  covered front porch .... ( I have to have a place to drink my coffee in the morning don't I )  My new shop is huge compared to my old one I feel like all the equipment i have in the old shop will be lost in the new one ..... LOL !!

I will post some pics of the old shop and the progress of the new one tomorrow " I hope ".   I still have a lot to do to get it ready for the move.


Here is My old 12 X 16 the side sheds are for storage the middle is my old work shop.. Its rough I know.

This is My new work shop 18 X 40  I had to add the wrought iron ( well My wife wanted me to ).
This will be our work space I'm trying to get her involved in my  miniatures.

I will try to post some progress pictures If I don't get caught up in the rush of getting things done.

Thank you for looking and stay tuned



  1. I'm so jealous! I want one! Never mind that that would take about half my garden. Congratulations! Looking forward to more pics!

    I've been looking at your earlier posts about preparing for a class. It's quite daunting to get 20 kits sawn and put together. Thank you for your comment on my blog!

    Once your new workshop is up and running I hope we can see much more of your miniatures!


    1. You sure will Idske and Thank you . good luck on your class


  2. Hello Mario,
    I think I am a little bit jealous. that is an awesome space to work. I'm sure you're going to love it! The coffee area is definitely the most important!
    Big hug,

  3. Wow, I think I like both shops, the old one has a beautiful lived look....and probably a whole story to tell. But the new one will be much handier in use. Forgive me my poor English, it's not my mother tongue ;).
    Kind regards, Ilona
    PS sometimes one can't find my blog, so here it is:
