Default So, that moment when......

...You're trying to create some more space in the workshop/garage by sorting out stuff for a tip run and you realise you've totally walled yourself into a spot with a combination of rubbish and things to keep

Then the next moment when you've managed to get yourself out by organising the things to keep back to where they need to go for now and you also have a car full of rubbish for the tip but you look around at your achievement only to realise that you haven't actually got any more space!!

Where in blue blazes does this stuff come from??!!??

I don’t think there’s such a thing as enough space . I find myself wishing I had a bigger garage than 22x26 , only to see guys here working in shops much smaller and building great stuff .
I think 36x36 minimum would be a great start in the next lifetime

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

No guarantee on that Rick. Only guarantee is that this lifetime ends, usually abruptly. Live big now, do the stuff you've always wanted to do NOW. Always lots of reasons "why not," but that only buys you regret. No how you suppose an ageing, desert dwelling rat know something like that. That's why I'm building the theater.

As a matter of fact a facebook friend reminded me about building a storefront theater in my home town where they built platforms for the stage. I'd forgotten how cool I thought that was...the origin of my desire to do the same thing.

What's on your bucket list Rick? Pick some and get on with it my friend. Glad you are doing the CNC, you've been thinking about it for years. But you probably don't want it in an uninsulated shop, right?

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

You left out the 1s from the front of the 36s.

Iím looking at potential getting a job with one of our contractors and the meeting is tomorrow. But that will throw a huge wrench into everything, as they had mentioned they need someone right away .
Ideally Iíd like to start the job oct 1, that way I could work on my house and shop and get it done .
I seen the bucket truck they have in the yard here , and itís not the type youíd use for an old man . I prefer the bucket at the rear ,so you can load your tools easily and get in easily .
Maybe they will have a better one available,but beggars canít be choosers .
Iíd much rather get the shop up and running , and make carvings etc . I donít need to make a ton of money, just enough to keep the lights on .
But working for another year and a half would take me to 60 years old , and I could take Canada pension plan early .
So this is a tough call .
Personally, in my heart Iíve had enough . Iíd really like to be at home at this point ,and Iím really liking the thought of having some freedom .
Iíve only been retired for one day so far lol

Go for the extra year, Rick and do your set up in your time off. I retired at 62 1/2, and took a 15% cut in SS and have never regretted it. that was 19 yr.s ago.

One of Parkinson's Laws states that "Work expands to fill the time available." I think a corollary is, "Tools and supplies expand to fill the space available."
