A little late to the party...

The videos were great. Loved the wall of projects.

My fear is you have too much space. One of us needs to move in.

I would myself but I find myself somewhat sedentary lately.  :D

Nice shop Bill, you've planned well for your retirement. :ThumbsUp:

If you're going to import some shop elves from Chris, don't forget the chocolate chip cookies.  :lolb:
Fair warning. If you have cookies, I will move in with the elves!

Hi Mike, yes I would call it finished and the tractor has now been relocated to the garage of the house freeing up that room. I will be adding a freestanding work table or two later on, but need to get the house move completed first. My sherline bench still has to be moved out to the shop too but I know where it is going, just a matter of getting it done.

Thanks Bill. I am pleased to hear that it is going well. I am sure that a lot of us would love to see some pictures of the shop in its finished state.

 Thank you for the thread. I have followed it avidly as you did the work. It has been most entertaining as well as educational.

NOPE. ...no paint other than the bathroom. With 14 six foot led lightbulbs, it's plenty bright as is. Chris, remember that final scene from Fargo  :lolb:

Here are the videos finally. Still need to do some more organizing/cleaning up, etc. but it's useable as is now. Sorry no narration as it is self explanatory I think.

Nice Shop Bill!!!

Thanks Dave. Was down there for a while today, mostly just playing. It's nice having that free space to think about what to put there. I'll get more serious once the house move is made and I can just walk down there whenever I want.

Good Morning Bill,
Just finished going through your renovation project very nice, I am envious of all the room you have, I do miss my space. Interesting seeing the footing for the house, When I built my old house in the country in 2007 I had to go down 4 feet to get below the frost line for a slab on grade. Edmonton area is at 54 parallel.
