Two garage (6×6m) workshop built out of ruins I bought for bargain. A hell lot of work, but worth of it. It took me 2 years to fix structural demages and stabilize the building, which suffered 30cm (12in) fundaments sinking. But this is a separate story/project.

Shop is equipped with basic woodworking power and hand tools. No special brand preferred. The most preferred is the time spent there.

1. 5 garages sunk down
2. After not bearing wall between garages collapsed, I reused bricks and closed second door, making it blind door. Reusing some old PU panels from sectional door (not shown), I added weather protection to this wall, addrer thermal insulation and made it sectional blind door look a like from outside.
3. Roof concrete pannels suffered a lot. Green roof is planned atop of thermal insulated roof as well. Added steel reinforced pillar in the middle of workshop takes a lot of space, but I can live with it. Two 14cm steel “I” rails were installed on the side corbels for additional roof support. Top of the pillar was finished after final roff hight was adjusted.
4. The heart of my workshop – some projects can be seen on this picture – my workbench, my son’s workbench, proof of concept of shakers bench, japanese toolbox for my plunge saw, saw table (which can be disassembled) serving as shelving now.
5. This is how it looked like in 2014 – flooded garages.
6. Current status – to be done :)
