Shop Tour -
Added on August 13, 2008

This week’s shop comes from Garry who writes: Your shop of the week has inspired me to take a few pics. I built this place mostly with recycled tropical Hard Woods. This shop, including the front porch and full bath is 35 x 16 and sits on a slope of about 35 degrees. The support posts underneath are TEAK logs some being 9 feet tall and 16 inches in diameter. The floor structure is ALMENDRO. The finish floor is t&g CENISARO. The walls are framed from MELINA and covered with FIBERBOARD on the inside with a wains coat of ROBLE. The exterior walls are covered in Board and batten ROBLE and MELINA with 6 coats of marine varnish. The doors are TEAK. The roof trusses are framed with recycled TEAK poles from a beach Rancho I built years ago Illegally. The government forced me to dismantle it so having a huge stack of TEAK poles became the inspiration for the shop. On top of the TEAK rafters Is CANA BRAVA. On top of that is CLAY BARREL TILES I brought from Nicaragua. Hope you enjoy and I do have guest rooms.
