When deciding to build the workshop, we wanted to stay in keeping with the heritage of the 1867 property, hence the dimensions are 22’ x 50’ giving the structure a carriage house look. Clapboard siding, corner boards, large 6x6 sash windows and cedar shingles grace the outside of the building.
The workshop was planned to be efficient, organized and comfortable. Two large doors open up to the entire width of the building enabling us to bring in long timbers with the forklift. Custom built cabinets extend to the ceiling in each corner, providing ample tool storage with no wasted space. Modern in-floor radiant heat make those long winter days enjoyable and productive.
The upper floor contains of a 12’ x 20’ office with a conference table, loaded library and ample room to host future power point presentations. The rest of the upper floor is a storage room for drying boards, pegs and miscellaneous stock.

The overall feeling of the workshop is of an old schoolhouse with 200-year-old sash windows and antique tools complementing the wall space.
