This garage seemed huge compared to what I used to have but now I wish I had more space.

Thanks for the compliments. I spend a lot of time out there.

Wow, that's a tidy, well organized garage.

Default Before-pics of the shop

Hi guys !
I haven´t been that active on this forum the past year and the reason is the brickbuilding in the pic. For some years I have been looking for an old gasstation/garage closer to the coastline so that I can spend time in the garage while the kids and grandkids go to the beach. Well, last march I found something I couldn´t resist. It´s an old dairy from around 1898, originally built using yellow bricks. But in the 30´s, 40´s and 50´s they expanded the building to about twice the size of the original one, using red bricks instead. It is now something like 3725 Square feet in ground level.

One day last week I first went to the dairy and then in the evening I went to pick up a L78 shortblock for the Nova. While going back home with the shortblock in the car I came up with the idea of showing you the building that will house a garage in the future. As you can see there is no garagedoor so that I can get a car in from the yard. But before making that happen I will have to make the place suitable for living. There has always been people living in the building, but I think we need another level of comfort.

More pics to come.

This pic was taken from the opposite side. The original yellow wall on the right and the lower part of the chimney on the left.

Default 1928

Here is a pic (of the original smaller building) that I have dated by identifying the Ford model T on the left and also the one on the right. The right one was registered in may of 1927 and the left one was scrapped in dec of 1929. So the pic was taken during the summer of 1927, -28 or -29. In the late 19´th century butter was an important product for our country. I believe at least 5% of the export revenue came from butter.

This is what it looks like looking towards the coastline, which is about 9 miles beyond the windmill. Nomally living in the forests, this is a pleasant view for us.

This is where I will be working on the cars. It´s a small part of the building but it will work great I think when ready. Pic was taken the first day we had access to it so dirt and stuff was left by the old owner. The cooling machine on the left was built by a subsidiary to the York Shipley Company in Pa. I believe one of Shipley´s sons started the english company.
