Things are happening. It looks like I'll be buying the house next to the workshop within the next month or two. That means a dedicated bike workshop, storage, becoming a landlord and possibly building a third workshop for anything not bike or wood related.
Yeah, he does some nice work.
This bodes well for the thread.
I just read through the whole thing. The bat still is a highlight. I really like the work you did so everything has its place. Wonderful.
So it looks like I've bought a house (and pulled off my sisters roof). Current woodshop on the right with the upcoming bike workshop behind. The double garage will be torn down along with the fence that divides the courtyard
I'm staying west of Faaborg this WE and I was wondering how you were getting along. Congrats with the purchase!
Lord of the manor! You’re on a roll, good going.
Thanks. If you zoom in and squint a bit you can see the a sliver of water which the EA called 'a lovely ocean view'.
Sisters roof is almost done, but I can't start working on the new place until we've exchanged on the 1st of June(ish).
@Lolo: Have you been out riding in Svanninge Bakker?
This is the coming bike workshop. The covered part on the left will be enclosed and the whole thing will be insulated, painted to match the other workshop and get a new roof. The concrete floor is fucked too, so I'll probably pour a new one. It'll give me around 25-30 m² of insulated space which I plan to heat using a DIY solar heat exchanger.
At some point in the future I'll probably build another workshop connected to this one for metal/car/motorcycle stuff, but that's not a priority right now.
So much workshop/space goals! Love to see it
I've had a few ice creams at Skovtrolden in the past...
We rode back to the in-laws through Svanninge itself, to avoid the main road. It was a pretty nice route with the snow, although we had to find alternative arrangements for toddler transport...
Alternative Toddler Transport is a good band name

Any details on this?
Probably something inspired by one of the projects from here: https://www.builditsolar.com/Projects/SpaceHeating/Space_Heating.htm
This one looks like a good bet: https://www.builditsolar.com/Projects/SpaceHeating/solar_barn_project.htm
