That looks like the shop I spent my summers in as a kid.  The old farmer's name was Bill Howell and he taught me all about fixing everything and anything on the farm.

Great looking shop.

Dirt floors are actually better on your feet than hard floors.  It isn't so much the hardness, it is the uneven surface.  On a hard floor, the surface is even so the pressure points in your feet stay constant and ----  your feet hurt!!!

On a dirt floor, the slightest difference in angle for one step to the next, changes the pressure point so pain does not develop like on a hard surface.

I learned this from an old Dr.  I would complain about my feet hurting when I walked inside a mall in the winter.  During spring, summer, and fall, I walk through the woods and every step is different.

I agree Dennis and would add that it's also quite interesting keeping things fairly dangerous... that's the other thing about walking through the woods, you have to be aware of projecting stuff and be light on your feet.

I clean the dirt floor once in a while by starting at one end and using my hands to sorta brush everything up then sort all the piles into dirt, wood, metal, plastics paper etc.

Years ago I had a workshop and living space in the city where I did woodwork and welding and this fire safety guy dropped by and after looking gave me the all clear. I asked him why because I had piles of wood and shaving and a fairly obvious space for welding with oxy acetylene. He saaid guys who play with fire all the time are much more safety conscious even if it looks dangerous.

Where do you live Sean?  I also like dirt floors in the winter time.  Here in michigan a dirt floor will stay warmer than a concrete floor.

Well I was born in Hamilton in Ontario... but the past forty seven years I've been in Auckland in New Zealand. You could almost say I live on the reservation as I'm the only white man on a street... suburb full of Pacific Islanders.
