    After a bit of a wait thanks to Irma things are happening.

    That's great. But did it get wet in the storm... and shrink down to half-size? My advice to people is always to build twice the shop you think you can get by with... then double it <G>

    But seriously... I love how much natural light you've built into it. Enjoy!!!

    V good.

    As soon as some boundary line links get worked out, my honey and I intend to build a garage/art studio/woodshop next year. 22 x 22 each for the garage and shop with 11 x 22 art studio above.

    Columns are for the front porch and back deck/sunroom on the house. They are framing the boat garage first so construction materials can be stored inside during the house build.

    It's 20x28. 12' ceiling height. About what I've got now. This way I won't be tempted to build something bigger than the Rambler.
    And yes to the natural light. After working in a basement all these years I was ready!

    Makes perfect sense. Sure. Good plan. Don't tempt fate. Exercise self-discipline.

    Ooh, what a nice kayak building shop... Man, lashing a frame while looking out THAT shop. Oof.
    Really nice work, Brother.

    I hope you enjoy many years of wishing it were only two feet longer.

    Peace,

    Looks great. Is the pressure treated plywood skirt a local practice/requirement, or maybe for a stone facing?

    Good question, I wouldn't put any wood that close to grade if I could help it.

    Any wood below BFE (basic flood elevation) has to be PT. Siding will be Hardy plank.
    We raised the elevation of the house and boat garage slabs 10" based on what we saw with Irma.

    The back of the boat garage was already very close to The 60' buffer zone off the marsh. Can't do any structures in that area.
    I didn't want it any closer to the house. Will have a breezeway connecting it to the house.

    Before I'd even put a pencil to paper for the shop I'd made the decision that I won't own a boat that I can't pull out of the water and work on myself. Yards rip you off. My 23' Rambler will fit in it on the trailer, and I don't see building/owning anything bigger.
    Besides Harry Bryan's shop doesn't look any bigger and he sure does some good work in his.

    Excellent, I like the proprtions of your window openings. Somehow taller than wide seems more harmonius to me.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    Thanks. Keeping the same low country style we used on the house.

    There will be a breezeway connecting the house and shop.

    The house is just about framed up as well. Met with the electrical, plumbing and cabinet subs a few days ago.

    Been a bit of progress lately. Was slow with the snow and ice right after the New Years, followed by rain and cold. Last week things finally got moving again.

    I like it !! - In that last photo, I can see the size of the shop relative to the house. What will be on the ground floor of the house ?

    Nice view from that rear deck on the second floor?
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    Hardy plank siding should work out well in that environment - And should keep maintenance down

    Make sure it is installed per their guidelines. I had all the hardiplank on my dormers fail. Not warranted since they claim it was installed improperly, the problem being it's damn near impossible to install it to where it looks decent on a dormer, and meet their warranty requirements at the same time. Wish i still had the pictures but it was basically just flaking apart for the whole bottom section near the shingles.

    First I’ve heard of Hardy plank doing that. It’s a pretty stable product. I used it on the sunroof of our current house maybe 12years ago. Still looks like the day I put it up.
    Was that in GA of NH?
    Was the failure along the bottom edge where it was in contact with the shingles? Did a bit of reading and you don’t want the edge in contact with the shingles as it’ll wick up the water running down the roof. Most suggestions I saw were to run PVC trim along the shingles and the Hardie plank to that.

    Beaufort River, just above Port Royal Sound. House is on a small island just off of Saint Helena Island. Land across the river is Paris Island.
