I work out of a storage area out by where I live. I have a 10 by 30 enclosed space, with electricity, and a large parking space in the rv lot for my trailer. I keep all the equipment in the enclosed space. It has worked well for me for the last 4 years or so since I moved in there. I dig having the space, lots of work area for maintenance and storage. Got the electricity for the power tools. It's seperate from my home, and secure. And there are lots of other companies that work outta the storage area. Asphalt, painting, trucking, a Lay's Potato Chip vendor, and 2 other LCOs, as well as many others. Lots of commercial activity. I am very happy there. Today as I am leaving in the morning with the trailer, the guy that runs the place stopped me. It seems that the new policy for all the storage areas this company owns is no automotive fluids are to be kept in any storage area or parking area. This does not include gas and oil in machinery, just containers of gas, oil, fluids, lubricants, etc. Can't be kept in the unit, or in an RV lot. As well as no more than 2 spare tires of any kind. Now, this doesn't really bother me that much. It's not so much an incovienence to take the gas cans and oil home and keep it there. And the manager says there won't be any inspections, so even if I keep the stuff in the unit, they'll not know about it. But it worries me that more restrictions are to come, and/or more forceful enforcement of the restrictions. In which case I will be forced to find elsewheres to go. And on top of that, I really am not happy that they are basically biting the hand that runs the place. Without the commercial workers in there, the place would be empty. So, one of my long term goals has been to get my own building, whether rent or buy. But it was long term. I am not ready to make that kind of investment any time soon. I would ideally like a big warehouse type building, or barn, etc to keep the equipment in, maybe have an office and area for future workers. Land around here is at a premium, especially with all the new residential areas they are creating out here now. Used to be a lot of unused land on the cheap, but since the building boom started, empty land is expensive and scarce. Not to mention getting the land in a correctly zoned area. I have thought about approaching one of the other lcos and proposing going in together on a building, not sure how that would work though. I just hope nothing else changes at the storage area any time soon. It has been an ideal situation until now.
