    Well, after about a year of searching and coming very close on a different one, I finally pulled the trigger on a new shop. We now have running water, heat, 230V for the real welders, yard space, just about anything I could need at this point.

    We are still in the process of getting set up, still a couple weeks away. I need to finish painting (as you can see in the pics), set up the office with the other desk, install the compressed air piping, ect.

    Here are a few pics of our progress

    Its actually wider than the old space, its just packed up with every tool I own all over the place right now so its looking small in the pics.

    Heres a better shot looking towards the front of the shop from the garage door. I'm thinking that next summer I will finish the build out upstairs and turn the left side into a kitchen/employee type area that will have the refrigerator, sink, etc and then the other side will be a conference room. Those are my thoughts on what to do with it now at least.

    Looks good collin. Are you gonna be able to store all your salt at the new shop? Is it closer to your service area? Keep the pics rolling.

    Great looking shop. It looks like you have quite a bit of room now.

    Yes, I'll now be able to have the office, shop and salt all in one location. The shop is located much more central to our 3 main service areas, and even opened up quick routes to 2 new markets very close, which was key in deciding on this location.

    Being close to your service area is key. but being able to get into new areas because of the shop location is awesome. There is definitely a lot of snow removal in that area. Kudos too you.

    That pro-tech video has me so amped up about it all that I will be most definitely making some videos this year. We are planning on putting quite a bit of effort into it this time around. Going to be hard to compare to pro-techs though.

    I haven't had much time to get too set up and really move the office to the new location completely. But anyways, heres a few shots so far. Things are getting a bit more organized. I had a bunch of pro photos taken of my equipment plowing so I am having them printed large and framed for the walls.

    We are also in full swing pulling everything apart and getting ready for winter. We have a spreader resto going on right now as well as starting general maintenance on all the equip.

    The M7040's are both being equipped with rear snow blowers, extra remotes, strobes, and communication radios, and gps.
