That is one fine building, Marcel.  I am sure the addition will look equally impressive!

I to, like the new shop and the car port. I like the idea of using that as a house for the mill too, as edsaws suggested. ;) As everyone says, the shop is never big enough. My own is small and cramped, but temperary untill I build me new one , some time down the road. My father's aunt and uncle had a house connected to the garage by a breeze-way which was a godsend in the heat of the summer when a nice breeze always blew throught there. They closed it in with panels in the fall for the winter months to keep snow out. See'n folks post their pictures of their new shops on here makes me want to get to work on mine sooner than is possible (financially and weather-wize). ;)
Move'n on.

 It wasen't my doing in having it this size ,  I was sortof stuck with the size ... Had an old building there and the only way to get a new one that was functional was to use the grandfather clause on the old building where I had to keep the same footing size .... But they aloud me to put the carport attachement to the building ... So I went as big as I could legaly with the size of carport .  18' x 36' x10' high , Have a by-law here that says I cant finish it more then 40% , So I figured that the back wall I would board up leaving a 5' x 7' door , then put stove wood in between the post on the outside walls and that will keep me outa the weather .....

isawlogs,

Congrats on the honorable mention for the gazebo. It looks real nice. But, I gotta ask ya: Do ya ever sit in it? ;) I ask that because I never see anyone using their gazebo.
Move'n on.

Marcel when you stack that firewood if you put cement between them sticks it will really keep the air out. ??? Have though about building a stack wood house but I burn it before I can get it stacked. :D :D

Marcel,
I really like that Gazebo.  Do you have plans for that?  I built a gazebo by the pond for my bride and I to get married in.  It wasn't near as nice yours.  A big wind came up and blew it away a few years back.  All that is left is the platform.  Every year I tell the Missus I'm going to rebuild it - just as soon as I get my barn done. . .

 WwW
I dont have plans for it but if you want its not hard to make a set ... got something to mesure from .... ;)
This I can tell you ... Its 14' across the points , 12' across faces and is 6 sides , 7' is a magic number on this one
7' high... 7' across the faces , 7' to center ( I made 6 triangles to the center out of 2x6 for the floor )  the frame is ruff cut 6x6 pine ( i like working with pine ) the rafters are 3x5 , the center post is 8x8 cut 6 sides and then was cut to a point with the chainsaw ... its four feet long if memory is still intacted ...

I'll draw it out for you it will be easier and faster then my 1.5 finger typing

Swomp.
that gazebo gets a lot of sitting done in it ... It has a hide a bed in it and a hammock seat and a table I made outa cedar that is the same angle as the walls to be able to tuck it in ....
J_T   Thats the plan ....but need for the inspector to come around first  ;)
Norm ... there a lot more to come only have to find them and scan them ..... but I gots lots ....
WWW  I'll tell you when those plans are ready do you have a size in mind ..... ???

I know this should of come in here earlier  but I just dug these out
Making the pad to sit the shop on ... Put down some pit run and had a bobcat come in with a hydraulic vibrating roller pack it down





Had to put someting up to stop the pit run .. so I built a retaining wall. I used  white cedar that I cut on my mill . I cut it to 4" thick and kept one side round , then placed them over one another and scribed them so they would not overlap on the outside ... A T bar 8' long was hammered in the ground and the wall secured to it with 6" screws and then each one spiked to the other with 8" calvinezed nails



Just could not make square corners ... had to have a 45 on there ....





I also left a two foot space in between the two retaining walls to put in some flowrs ... the wall would of looked to high .. the flowers should break up the wall , we also stained the cedar the same color as the shop ... did not find that picture yet ... but I will ....

    This is the north side  , the dormer is for my daughters studio .


    
      I put up live edge boards on board for the gable ends and the dormer , the boards below are pine and are 12" wide with 2 1/2 "  battens .  The only thing left to do is put one more coat of paint on the trim.  I am really happy to have this done , now I can at least check one thing off of the TO DO list ...  ;D :)
