    I have always opperated solo from home, and until now it has worked out fine. The outfit I worked for before was the same also, but this season I think I am out growing my lot. It would be nice to seperate home and business.

    I am trying to decide what would be best, renting/purchesing a commercial shop space in town (big $$$ I know), Or building a shop on another private lot that is rual enough to limit drive time but far enough out to have a reduced price from that of town and maybe more space.

    I am sure I won't have anything new in place this season, but I am shooting for 05' or 06'. Trying to plan ahead and looking for some advise. Where is the best place you guys have found to build your shops?
