Anatole Burkin bought a house with a detached garage so he could dedicate the space to woodworking. Greg Paolini built a new two-car garage to house his shop, knowing that it could easily convert back to a garage if he ever sold his property. And Sunny Waters designed a no-compromises timber-frame shop that's ideally suited to his use of hand tools and human-powered machines. Point is, there's more than one way to get a stand-alone workshop. For more info see the article in the Tools & Shop issue (Winter 2009/2010) of Fine Woodworking.

Slot machines.
But since I've opened the page, I see you had in mind a different "path." Beautiful shops, by the way.
