Recently, my wife and I have started a new chapter (adventure). I sold my parts business and semi retired. We picked up root and are in the process of moving to our home in northern Wisconsin (love to snowmobile).

So, our old house is sold (6 days). That mean time to get going on the new shop. 40x56 steel building............radiant heat floors.............high ceilings.............a hoist....... and more room for all of our stuff. I now can keep it call in one place!

The push is on the get the site cleared and prepped, in order to pour concrete this year

Off we go! I suspect the fill is going to be a killer.

I just built the exact same thing. Steel building, in-floor heat, 12 foot ceilings, got a lift. I went 60x72 and I still think I should have gone bigger!! :D

I though about bigger. Like a fish bowl, this will "contain" my habits................maybe

It really is IMO. I've wanted to live here for 30 years. Here is a pic I took off of my deck on Tuesday afternoon. Too bad the sun was not out.

They got back on things here this week. I believe we got about 5" of rain, so the excavator had to pull off for a week. Looks like site prep will be done this week and should be ready for concrete towards the end of next week.

Spoiled Brat !!!!!

Yep.............................kinda. I got boned by the mason who went and took on a basement ahead of me, and then the winter set in. No shop til next year. Tracey already shut me down on chasing her around the house. So.................I sit and wait for the snowmobile trails to open up!
