Well my fiance told me I could have the old raggedy boat house in the back yard. So I decided to make it my wood shop. Here are some pics of the process.
Remember ive never build anything like this im totally NEW at carpentry. ... comments welcome....

Looking good so far. I can't think of a better use for an old pavilion. :thumbsup:

The way I rotate my sideways pictures is by opening them in MS Paint and going to "image" then "flip/rotate".

Lol can someone fix them for me!!!!!
We encourage people to figure out how to manipulate images themselves. If we do it for you, then what happens next time? Do we KEEP doing it for you?

If you need help, tell me what operating system you are using and what graphics tools you have available and I'll see if I can point you in the right direction if Chaincarver Steve's suggestion doesn't do it for you.

While you are adding the door, you might want to add a window or two. You'll be glad you did when it gets hot in the summer or you need some natural light.

Otherwise, its coming along nicely. I wish I had a place like that in my yard.

Yes, Thats a great idea, There is a place here where I can get used windows, so ill grab one or two and put them in. Thanks for the Idea.....:thumbsup:


I think the park will be mad you turned their picknic area into a garage. Lol looks great and you have a huge yard.
LOL Yeah thanks to the old owners, that table was left behind along with the "boat house" :boat: and the all the lumber. As far as the yard we have 1.3 acers.
