I'm not sure I can make it this weekend.....


We'd love to make a west coast run sometime, maybe we''ll meet up sometime when we do.

I got one quick question, though, concerning your shop. What have you done for sound deadening. If you put the compressor in there, I get the feeling it'll make a load of racket that'll drive you crazy.


In a while, Chet.

My compressor will only run when I am working on the truck, which will be after hours. So it won't be a problem. If you ever head out this way make sure you contact me. My house is always open to hotrodders! I am half way between LA and San Francisco on the coast.

Ive been working out of a 20x20 this one is 30x50....I won't know how to act!

Update; The floor was poured a little over a week ago and turned out nice. Sorry no pictures of the pour (I still live in Fla untill the new house is done.) We started moving the toys in over the weekend.

Framing update

My father in law and friend are almost done with the framing on the new shop. Attached are a few pics of it. We will start running electrical next week then move on to the drywall. I think I am going to have the drywall done by a crew. They can throw it up so fast and be out of there before I finish one wall.

If you don't mind me asking. All set and done what did it cost you? Did you build yourself or did you have a contractor do the actual construction and concrete work. It is basic but perfect for what I would want to do.

All said and done with electric run I will have 22K in it. I had National Barn put it up for me.

Ground work was 3900.00 but I had to cut a 50x100 area out of a hill.
Barn including labor to put it up was 12,120.00, hard to beat the price.
Concrete was 4700.00

Well, for now, this is where I have to work, a covered carport. Keeps the rain off of me and the car, but as you can see, the gravel makes scooting around on a creeper a little difficult, not to mention the jack.



I do, however, have a ton of big boxes left over from our recent move into the house, which I have used to great effect-- just be sure to pick out those big, sharp rocks if you need to.

I do have a huge basement, which right now is storing parts from a '69 Galaxie, so I do have a work area.





It only has a single door opening, so I can't pull a car into the basement and go to town. I have to choose the great outdoors, or parts that aren't wider than my door. Turning it into a garage just isn't practical, and would cost as much as a new garage anyways. We bought the adjoining lot to our house, and the big, manly-man garage will definitely go there. Apparently, the only part I think I will for sure have to hire out to build it is the foundation. Laying out concrete for a 1000 sq ft garage will probably be the biggest hurdle.

Hope to be able to post photos of that garage when it comes, but I did want to show that you don't need that garage just to turn a wrench!
