If I could "combine" my front shop and back shop....


Actually, I'm thinking of adding 20' on the back of the polebarn (only 8' high) to put the mill , lathe, welders and the rest of the fab tools in. Then using the front shops solely for storage.

Who'da thunk that I'd run out of room with a 56' x 26' garage, and a 30'x40' polebarn? And my daily drivers have never spent the night indoors!

(More pics of garage and polebarn in Gallery and Project Journal)

My dream garage would be a 40'X100'X15' hoover building with an apartment built into it. I'd back the 30'X30' apartment away from the nearest walls by at least 5'. Would give me room to store mountain bikes/rafts/camping stuff and make the heating/cooling of the living space a lot easier. Not to mention that when I'd sit in the hot-tub on the 'roof' of the apartment I'd have a great view of my cars.

btw- to the young'ns - hot tubs are much handier for getting women than flashy cars (grin).

Here is my dream shop.
It's 25' X 25' X 11' high, high-lift insulated door, Home Depot cabinets, AC/Heat unit, 4 in-wall stereo speakers, and a U-Coatit epoxy floor. (However, I wouldn't use U-Coatit again as I am dissapointed with it.) The air supply is piped-in from the 80gal compressor located in my other 2 car garage. I will be painting my current project (69 Vette) in here soon.
It is my dream shop but of course now my dreams are for bigger and better on my next house purchase.

Who needs a house?

I started building my garage last June, its a 28x32 pole barn with 12' walls. I have 2' transparent panels at the top of the walls to help with lighting. I have it built 150' away from the wife and kids house and I plan on moving in when I install heat and air. The wife already put yard and kid crap in it that will be shortly in a dumpster. I have not spent too much time in it yet but I am planning some nice projects. Now all I have to do is get the electrical inspector off my butt and away we go.
