    so I finally pulled the trigger and tore the old shop down, it was 24x40 with a single door.
    I have a concrete pad out back with a lift because it would fit inside. I originally wanted a three car garage across from the house but the building restrictions wouldn't let me put it where I wanted it. that was to park the toys. so the contractor said why don't we just make this one bigger, ok by me. he was going to save some of it, remove the trusses and make it 46x40 and it will be 14' high in the center. I can move the lift inside.
    here are some pix of the old shop being torn down. they set the new poles tomorrow. should be under roof by end of the week. then the concrete. but...
    I am going to epoxy paint the floor so ill have to wait to use it
    damn

      Great, nothing like a new shop to get the blood flowing. Keep those pictures coming.

        I had over 3 years of paper bullshit with the county I had to go through to get mine going...It was a PITA but will be worth it when its done...

        Having a nice big flat area will make yours progress along a lot faster than mine has...
