Well when it is 20 outside my dad really didn't feel like building a shed. Plus he is the biggest procrastinator you will ever meet. So I had to wait for him to get anything done.

Nice, there's nothing like having your own shop! Are you going to have an overhead door so you can get your Exmark in and out easier? How about utilities? Where'd you keep your mower before, how about during construction? I like my shop!:cool2:

I fought for it but im getting the big double doors instead of the overhead, oh well, ill live. For utilities its going to have full electric and water in there so i can do my maintenance easier and whenever i really want to (night, rainy days etc.)

^^^ What size is that? I like the look of it. Mine is a 60x60 part of our barn. It is great because it has nice big doors, but the floor is dirt, so anthing you work on you are laying in dirt (and mud). It is easy to keep clean though!:dancing:

40 by 60. 14 foot tall inside and everything is finished like a house....sheetrock, knockdown finish, painted and trimmed.
The garage doors are front and rear lined up and are 14 wide by 12 tall.
about 1/3 is dedicated for 2 offices and a bathroom. That area is heated and cooled.
I'll get some finish pics posted soon.:usflag:

Man have I been busy these past weeks. I just finished up two $1500.00 mulch jobs this past week and got about two more like that to get done. Things have been good up here so far. I'm thinking bout buying another chopper this month cause I got some jobs it takes too long with one. I'll try to get on AIM.

It looks GREAT, thanx for posting pics. I live on a lake so I just can't fit anything too big out in my yard and it drives me crazy because the garage is cluttered to the ceiling with lawn stuff, house stuff and kid stuff lol

Of course the wood is PT, you should have seen the base of the old shed, ouch, not PT and a mess! this new shop is going to be great if it would only stop raining! Windows for the new shop come in today!

Im not sure of the total so far but the total estimated cost (not including my custom designed and built racks and work benches and things) came to around $1.5k, a shed designed the way we wanted the outside to be totaled around $4k from a local company that custom makes them for you.

Workin in the rain isn't to bad. Sometimes you have to do it just because you want toget the job over and done with.

Mike, If it is your girl that is keeping the project delayed, at least post a couple pics of her. Will she make SFL jealous???

UPDATE. three walls are done and up, fourth wall is on hold for most of it until we get the dimesions of the custom door for the thing. Once we started dad saw that a roll up door was the best way to go so thats what we are going with. New pics soon

this is a little off the wall but why is it that i see alot of lco that take the string guard off of their weedeaters? Is it supposed to save string or something?

You bought 10 brand new trimmers brian? Suddenly realize you gotta start trimming?:laugh:

exmark01
05-06-2006, 11:04 AM
yeah i kinda like it. why so maney? it looks like you put them in a dungon!

Brianslawn
05-06-2006, 01:24 PM
guards are on all of mine. some like to take them off to run more string out, but that bogs down the engine and wears it out quicker. plus more chance of damage or injury.

thats the mower bay on the barn. we also fit all the blowers, push mowers, and 6 walkers in there. the new stihl trimmers i got for $175 each. $25 off retail on each. 3 new stihl blowers were $25 off, too.

as for why so many.... we need that many. we run multiple crews. mike has seen pics of everything. trucks, trailers, mowers, other equip, tools, and spare parts. he'll be there one of these days. some of you other kiddies could too if you work hard enough. and pay attention when someones trying to learn you somethin.
