Thread: What a dream shop looks like.

  1. #1

    What a dream shop looks like.

    So I'll be working in a new space soon. The completed frame is the little building. The main building has a 150 ridge beam. It's gonna be like working in a temple.

    Fantastic start. I love timber frame shops.

    Is it my computer or are those pictures rotated?

    Please take a lot of pics along the way. Thee builds can be inspiring and super helpful even for those already in a finished shop. I imagine for most of us retrofitting our existing structure is the rule of the day and ideas are always welcome.

    I so wish I could afford a small timber frame for my upcoming new shop building project...they whole look and feel seems "so right". But alas...I doubt it will be near the top of the short list.

    Nice, will follow this thread closely!

    Jim - if you're looking to talk shop with a local timber framer, Brian Murphy is very nice and knowledgeable. I know it may not be in the cards for your project, but in the spirit of networking and learning, here's the link: https://www.barnguys.com/

    Congrats Johnny! For me that is truly a dream.

    Yes, please update with more pics. I think if you take the pics in landscape, then SMC won't rotate.

    Love the shop, Johnny. Please keep the pictures coming.

    The easiest way, if you have it, to get the pictures to not rotate, I have found, is to import them into Photoshop and re-save them as JPGs. Then post them. That seems to do the trick. There are other ways with other picture apps I have, but the photoshop way seems the easiest.
