    My dad used to make detailed dog houses when he was board. Might want to try that, dont need as much storage space.
    Im talking about dog houses with siding, shingles, porch railing and small plexiglass windows. People pay a killing for thoughs things.

    I occaisonally do some of this work but IM really slow and just dont seem to make good money at it. I can install a 100' water main in a couple of hours and clear 400 to 500$. It takes me a long time to make 500$ building a deck.

    That dog house thing sounds cool.
