Smithy in progress

IMG_20151227_080426282_HDRAfter years of procrastination and indecision I have finally begun work on my blacksmith shop aka “the old chicken coupe”.  The roof, as you can see, needs some TLC, so the tear off has begun and the new tin should be arriving shortly.   I’m in possession of a 110 lb drop forged turkish anvil (pics to come), and am awaiting the pickup of a newly built Atlas propane forge.   We are also trying to finish a basement bath so patience must be exhibited on my part, as I’m pretty excited to get hammering, but family projects first if we want to keep the wife happy :).  I’ll post an update soon.  ~Chris
