Default Exciting New Shop!

Well, I guess I'll officially let the cat out of the bag. In February we purchased an acreage, and last week we took possession. The nice 3.5 acre property has a great yard and house. It also has a terrific triple garage, 30' long, 38' wide, 12' ceilings, and three 10' x 10' doors. The previous owners included the 8,000 lb four-post lift, upright air compressor, sandblast cabinet, and arc welder in the deal. The garage is insulated and heated as well, and has lots of big windows.

Alongside the garage is a 32' wide x 42' long tarp quonset with 14' roll-up door where I will be storing a bunch of cars. I expect to fit 7 in there easily. We're very excited, and I'll be turning the garage into my dream with a nice floor, a paint job, and lots of benches and equipment. It will be a while but it will be well worth it in the end, and I'll have a great spot to build tons of things.

I've attached a couple teaser photos for your drooling pleasure.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.
