    Finally I got all my shit in one pile! WooHoo!

    Here's my new 10 car shop! Just about full right now! (Didn't take long to fill it!)

    It has 3 offices and a Shitter! I think I may live in one of the office and call it home!

    Here's a few pics! Let me know what you think!

    The front fascia! I photo chopped the sign. There is a sign cabinet existing...so I will take advantage of that!

    The logo for the sign!

    Nothing like a big shop to store your "stuff" and have room for working. Only problem is after your there for awhile it gets small and your wishing it were larger. My 40'X80' 2 story was HUGE when I built it and first moved in.............been planning a 30'X80' addition for over 10 years. The wife thinks I'm nuts.:eek::D

    Glad to hear you're open to sleeping in one of the offices. It's happened to most of us.
    Nice digs though.

    Will never be enough space, but going from a 1 car you'll be able to make it work. Enjoy!

    Wow, awesome shop-congrats! That is great that your family is involved too.

    I am blessed that my twin brother & dad are into cars too. We split a shop 3 ways, & it makes it very affordable to work on our cars. Plus we can work all night without disturbing a soul.

    I would convert an office into a living quarters in a heartbeat! You could make it real comfy for reasonable, & kill 2 birds with one stone. Plus it makes it really easy to go piddle around for an hour or two, where if you have to drive over it's not so easy.

    Best of luck!

    Dan
