Shop Expansion? Wahoo!
Sharon and I were talking tonight after we got home from my son's wedding. She asked something about the new saw and when it was due here. Like I said asked "something" and I mentioned it was 1000 lbs, the mobility kit that won't be here for 2 months and the pallet jack. I told her tomorrow I was going to move everything out of the garage, reorganize things as they go back it... and leave the Rockwell Saw and the Electronic RAS covered up out in the driveway until they are sold.
She looked and me and told me I better start building a carport. I quickly told her I need to take her up on that. We talked about what else needs to happen for parking. We have 3 trucks, 2 cars, 2 trailers here and my horse trailer at Richards Ranch...
I'm still a bit in shock. Just days ago, I was wondering where I was going to run DC ducting to, to locate the DC and separator. Then I still have three things on my wish list- a bandsaw, a thickness planer and a 2-1/2hp router. I pretty much have tools in my garage and in my uiliity shed on 3 layers of HD shelves. My router tables, when not in use are up on shelves or hung on a wall. My workbanch goes agains a wall, I have to juggle things around and still move things out the garage to work on anything of size.
You have to remember- construction, woodworking, welding/fabrication, plasma arc metal art, blacksmithing, horse training, mechanics, electronics, rebuilding old iron tools, rebuilding old chain saws, etc... Mike and I have talked about this. (LOL) He says his garage is packed also.
So I'm going to pursue this. I'm going to price things and see if a pre-built or me-built. I guess I should also check with city hall about their regs... Because I'm thinking around 12'x24'. (guesstimate)
