And the shop is nearing completion. One side is done and John is building tables and benches and putting up pegboard and bringing order to his scattered stuff.
The other side is in progress--Justin has hung and spackled the sheet rock and a bit of sanding, more spackle, more sanding, some paint, and Bob's your uncle! (For an explanation of this mainly UK phrase, see HERE.)
At one point, well, at several points, we wondered if this rebuilding would ever become reality. But thanks to the many friends who helped and to Good Morning Builders who really kicked things into gear, John has his shop again. Almost.
