You’re a better man (person) than I am! I would never have gotten past the smell! We had an elderly neighbor like that. Thankfully he was far enough away not to bother us, but when my husband plowed his snow or shoveled his porch, I could hardly bear the stench that permeated his clothes from being that close to the place! The trailer was removed from the property after he moved.
Your shop—now that you have gone through the initial torture to remove the stench—will be a fabulous work space. We’ll be watching your progress with interest.
