Default Viking Dragon Ship Building

I was wanting to build one similar, but then I found out my shop was not quite large enough.

Theo,

that's a really nice ship - and if you even remotely considered to build one in your shop, you must have quite some room to spare in it

Depends on what you mean by room to spare. My shop is 8' X 12'.

Theo,

hmmmmm - in that case you might perhaps think of fitting that shop onto the ship

Why not build a covered shed with open sides? I understand that this was common practice in the old days.
