    A quick tour of the newly renovated building that is now my ham shack. I thought y'all might like a tour. I would love suggestions about additional storage and organizational tips too. It's definitely a work in progress, but it's coming along.

    The previous owner actually lived in this tiny 12x28 building. We added on 12x15 carport enclosed to become my office and cut a walk-way through from one side to the other. I feel like I have 10 pounds of stuff but only a 5 pound bag to put it all in. :)

    I agree! Time to play and see how functional this place is. I'm sure I will reorganize a few dozen times in the coming months. LOL

    Now the real question is, since this shack is something you never need to leave (bathroom, kitchen, etc.) when do you plan to see your family again?

    Seriously though, this is something I want to build for myself at some point. Inspiring me.

    Right! LOL My wife now wants my old shack (attached to the house). So I have to see her long enough to build her's out.

    There was a lady who lived in this tiny 12x28 building when we bought the property from her. Since then, we have used the building primarily for a storage unit. Then we closed in the carport that she had on the back of it (12x15) to make my office at home. Then we decided to make the interior of the building my new shack to give me an entire space all to myself. I swear I have 10 pounds of stuff and only a 5 pound bag to put it all in though. My wife (KR5SIX) now gets my old shack in the house. Her shack is actually larger than this space in terms of usable space. But like you said... I have a kitchen, a bed and a restroom with shower. I'm loving it!

    Thanks for the nice comments.
