    £900 for 2 x (11 x 3.30 m), planed but not finished. As the company lets me store my timber in its climate controlled warehouse, I won’t complain too much.

    I got approximately 42 sqm, for around 700 Gbp (converted from sek) total which was the cheapest solution I could find with real wood, and looks quite good i think.

    My workbench has finally moved into my new workshop today! I still have some plinths to finish and the outside decking (that’s for spring time). build some storage and move in the bandsaw. All that will be for next year though, no more weekends available this year for woodworking. Once my workshop looks used I will send some more pictures.

    Everything from the workbench castors (where did you find those in Sweden) to the lighting looks really great.

    Finally, I’m confident of that the moisture content of the croft’s roof boards is sufficiently reduced to allow me to finish with putting up the panels. A good second outcome from having installed a dehumidifier is that irrespective of temperatures and ambient humidity, the loft is always above the dew point, and that my “dew point calculator” constantly informs on that there is no risk of metals corroding.

    Experience has taught me to have covings, skirtings, and beadings in place before taking a break over winter. Mice appear to be able to find their way through almost any gap.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Interesting – thanks for sharing that. Great to see the very different approaches to building there. Looks like a wonderful space to work in. The light bouncing around those white walls would make a wonderful space for photography too.

    Thanks, so far very happy with the workshop…

    I think I bought it at Amazon, but there’s quite a few ways to get these in Sweden (ebay, etc..)

    When I designed it, I intended it could be used as a creative studio. Painting, woodworking, photography. I built the windows to the north to have good lighting without sun. When we sell the house at some point of time, I think it’s better to have a more flexible space.
