Though it's in shambles at the moment, we really needed some more room. Can't wait till it's all over and I can have a normal ORGANIZED shop again. Here's a couple of pics of the mess. All in all we are pretty much doubling the size of the existing garage, and adding on a bathroom/locker room. Should be all done and reorganized by the end of the week. :blob3:

looks good, you can never have too much room in my opinion. The bathroom and locker room is a good idea. Its nice to have everything in a centralized location.

with all due respect sir...i see a ladder, a blower, an aerator, a rubber hose, and a toilet bowl. does that constitute a "shop"? did u post the wrong pictures by mistake?

Your such a great guy Robert. As stated the shop is under construction since we were expanding. You just have no perception of a shop, since you still work out of the truck of your mother's car. Maybe she'll let you drive soon. One day you'll be like the rest of us Robert. ...One day. (with all due respect... of course.) :waving:


For the rest of you guys, contructing is done. We all know how time is though, so I don't have anymore pics yet. I'll see if I can snap some today. I have a 16' trailer in there that I am redoing at the moment, so of course its a mess again. I guess we'll always be cleaning the damn thing! :p

no need to talk about my dead mother. i was only playin with you aponte, havn't seen u in awhile. the ummm, "shop" looks great btw ;) . i have quite a nice shop though, really. it's very large, nice tabletops for working on. right now though it's a storage area, can't even walk in it.

I have found that the bigger the shop one has the more crap one finds to fill it up. :)

No more pics of the shop yet, but here's a trailer I am currently working on. Here's two before pics when I got the poor thing and started ripping the deck off, and two where I am currently at with it. Gotta redo all the lights, and get a deck on it still. :)

Looks great, Paul. Nice work. How many bays do you have there? I would love to have a larger space to work.

Thanks guys. I'll get some finished pics later this week once it's all done. There are 4 bays at the yard with the stock pile, and 5 bays at the yard in the after pictures. :)

Nice work on the trailer! How long did it take you? Also if you don't mind me asking how much $$ went into the rebuild.

I would have to check all my receipts. But I can say that with the trailer and everything put into it I am probably a little under $2K, and about 4 days of my time. :)
