A year ago the roof of the shop started to leak. Wind, rain and moss finally worked through the ancient wood shingles and allowed buckets of water to rush in and damage the work bench, power tools and projects. A year of downtime ensued, where I had limited access as the shop dried out and a new roof installed.
Last week my father-in-law and I put the finishing touches on the roof, installing some support rafters and removing the bracing that was holding up the old rotting ceiling. Now I'm finally able to use the shop again!
