    Well, much later than I would have liked to start, as getting the ceiling up, heat installed, and walls insulated on the brand new shop has been somewhat of a priority the past couple of weeks... we finally pulled the first row of plows out and brought them into the shop for a little bit of pre-season TLC. But as suspeced, just like farming, you put something away working just fine.... when you pull it out to use it,m it is bound to have problems.

    We still got more than that to do through.:dizzy:

    The heated shop side of the barn is 50x40 and the cold storage side is also 50x40.

    That would be a nice shop to have heated and cold storage 50x 40...good size.
    Know matter what size the shop is you can always use a bigger one.

    Ain't that the truth. When the shell of the pole barn was standing, 50x40 seemed like it was going to be huge! Then in went the bathroom, and the kegerator, and the drinkin table, and the work bench and all the toolboxes, and the lift, and the wood burner and before you know it, it is starting to get small to early.

    If it was to be done again, two things I would change.

    #1 a 50x100 building
    #2 wider garage doors

    We do alot of diesel proformance work out of the shop in the summer so for pulling and building transmissions, changing turbos, all that stuff, the lift was sort of a must. It will hopefully help this winter too. :D

    Drivers meeting this afternoon to get maps and fill out paperwork. Had quite a few trucks ready, looked like a good time to take some shots.
