    As they say "Down Under", "Good On Ya", Larry. Glad to see........er.....hear that you've finally got your courage all whipped up and are getting started on that shop. Best luck to you on your build, we'll be watching the progress, so your photography skills will probably get a good fine tuning by the time you get 'er built too.

    Unhappy Had hicup

    got home last night with the final permit to see that i am gonna have a new neighbor wasnt a pleasent site. for you folk who dont know mw well i dont like crowds and live in the country for that reason... well had tried to purchase this property to the north of me several times with no approval by the 3 differnt landowners..well i had seen the current landowner drive by several time in the past 2 weeks and figured she was being nosey which is normally..but this time she had an alterior motive looked the direction she was looking and saw the staked out property....needless to say it didnt make my day. so i went on hold yesterday and hit the fridge...called a couple close friends and vented.. today am better still dont like it but am back at it again. so if the weather holds they will be forming the slab tnight and then i can start with the DC pipe.. oh and tod your oneof the friends that i vented too,,, so feel free to return the favor sometime,, by the way did you have an suggestion on what i need for air supply?

    larry, it`s not to late to buy a few hogs.....they make very nice neighbors ...if you add a donkey and a few chickens it`s unlikely that city folk will want to build next door between the rooster crowin` and the donkey braying.......

    so this makes sence to those reading, larry asked about a compressor that would run air tools.......
    for a one person shop my suggestion is to go with at least an 80 gallon tank and an american made pump and motor that`ll put out at least 17 cfm continous......quincy is good and so is ingersol-rand`s good stuff.......if you go ingersol watch what you buy `cause they have 3-4 lines of which only one will actually last for shop use.....tod

    I can help you twice boss

    Not only can I give you advice on building the shop Larry, but you are also able to tap my endless knowledge on raising hogs. We used to raise 1200 head a year....now that makes for some powerful country aroma that may send many a city folk back to from whence they came. In todays marketplace you can get a contract on raising hogs too, so it would be a definate option for you. Also with a hog pen you are not required to any setback regulations...yep, you can put those little porkie the pigs right on the property line, a little closer to their intended target. I'd say if you were somehow able to contain all that "waste" in a underground septic type system and let it ferment real good, your "new neighbor" might consider selling the property to you. After you have aquired said property you can clean out the oversized septic tank and convert it into a basement for your new shop.....less neighbor.
