My brothers new shop, I am jealous like a woman!

No offense ladies, but come on now, I feel like a woman looking at my sisters new big old diamond engagment ring.

He just put this thing up in the back yard at his house up in the seirras. There was nothing there but trees so all the pavment is new, it goes all the way making a driveway around the back side and back out to the street. It has a basement with a spiral stair case going down to the tool room where the drill press and brake lathe and those type tools will be. A four post drive on lift on one side and a two post lift in the middle. The photo you see out a window is the view from his office! He has three or so acres of woods out behind the shop.

You can see his house (just as beautiful!) in front of the garage.

I have to get out of this friggin city and start living!

Brian

You got that right...I just did that and do not regret it.........

Dont have a place as nice as that...but getting away from the city is great. Is he setting up some sort of business....or just playing?

You've got that right. My rule is, if the town gets a stop light, it's too big for ME.

Great looking garage but I really wonder about putting the major fabrication tools, like the drill press, down stairs. The convenience factor would be a major drawback for me at least. Sometimes my tools seem scattered too far away when I only have to walk 5-6 steps to get to them. I could be wrong but I bet over time a number of those tools find their way back up to the main level.

Now the "office" up there on the lookout level...that's just pure decadence. And I want one.

Have you ever noticed that car guys are never jealous of other peoples cars....but garages are a different story?

Putting up with Hughes Satellite is the price one has to pay to be able to sit down to supper at night and take this in.

Dewey, how do you keep forgetting about the white stuff that covers that view the other 8 1/2 months of the year?


In a while, Chet.

Nice place to visit...but I had enough of snow in 5 years to last me a lifetime.
I live in So. Cal (originally from here) and there is no place like it. An hours drive from the Mountains...15-20 minutes from the Ocean...Hours drive from the Desert. When I want see snow I drive up for the day or weekend. But I can appreciate where you live and I think it is so peaceful and awesome and those are some cool pics. The Sirreas are one of the Most beautiful places in Northern Cal. That garage is so cool, anyone would be jealous of that except...Jay Leno.

Nice shop... I keep looking at the metal building advertisements in our Electric Cooperative magazine every month and keep thinking of how nice it would be to have the space. I have the land out back so I'll have to seriously look into it.

Mine is a 7 car shop with 10 year lease for 1 dollar per year. I do have to pay the utilities though. THANKS DAD!

Anyone got a dollar I could borrow?

I'll have to take some pics and post them.

Yeah I have never been a fan of jewelry. The only purpose are the following 2 reasons:

#1. Sit there and look pretty

#2. Make other women jealous.

Even women have more functions/uses that that!

Yeah Martin, with your knowledge, skills, and experience, I'd say it was time to get out of there and get a place of your own. How many acres did you say brother has? I wonder if he can put another house on there

Of course California is getting pretty expensive AND restrictive. Might need to look elsewhere. I wish I was in a position to go into business with you.

Steve
