I’ve been living for the last several years without a makers workshop and the last 4 or so with all my gear held in storage while our tiny old house undergoes renovations, that I’m mostly doing myself.
While technically work started nearly 2 years ago with plans, clearing the block, planning and building permits; this week construction actually started on my new garage and workshop – 77m2 of concrete slab was poured, which about half will become my makers workshop.
Six months ago I had the block cleared ready to start, however not everything went to plan with local governement permit delays around planning resulted us living with a sandpit for a back yard over the last six months.
Like all old properties, I’ve been plagued by buried rubbish, building rubble, of course roots, roots and more roots, even a fully buried cast iron bath!!!.
Pour begins nice and early @ 0630
