    My New Shop

    I took possession of this great new Garagemahal. on Friday .


    Built by a tradesman for himself.
    30'X60
    10 ft ceilings,
    8" slab, insulated sealed course of block.
    15 years old
    2x6 construction weather tight.
    Gas furnace and Wood stove
    200 amp service.
    They left this old Cman behind
    Hot and cold running water.
    With in walking distances of the largest lake in the USA.
    They threw in a house, barn and 5.6 acres on a wooded lot too .
    Think I'm going to be like it here .

    Looks awesome Tyler. Congrats on the new digs.

    All you need now is a frig and couch. Rent the house out, no upkeep there.

    Wow Tyler! You done good! Looks like a good sized shop with most of the major work already done for you. Let's see you fill it up with tools now...

    Great new super space. You'll have fun in there. All you need is a couch and a TV and you can just live out there.
    I once heard that cats and women will do darn well what they please and that men and dogs would do well to accept it and just go on.

    You think there's any room for me too? I can help keep the fire stoked.

    Tyler, that looks like a sweet setup. Even though you paid WAY over retail for an old Craftsman tablesaw, it was nice of them to throw in a house, a barn, a shop, and 5+ acres of turning materials to sweeten the deal.

    Congrats!
