But wait, there's more! We're already super fed up with the mud bog between the shop and existing driveway, and existing concrete was in really bad shape to start with, made worse by heavy construction activities. Final phase of major construction work: driveway upgrade.

Since the work goes outside our property into the county right of way, we had to apply for a permit. The approval took about a week and a half. I used a PDF editor and a copy of our original survey to put together the drawings:

We definitely need to have a shopwarming BBQ party when this is all done!

That floor looks great! As in - yeah, you could put some furniture in there and it would fit right in!

Definitely an improvement over that mud bog!! I like your fence/gate setup. First class all the way!

Looking fantastic!!

So, what are the plans for the interior layout? Shelving, lifts, workbenches, cabinets, beer/garage fridge, bar, dartboard, stereo, blast cabinet, parts cleaner, etc.?

And of course, Steve insists that some day we will have a small pool to replace the one we exploded, and, like, 100 huskies,

Lots of plans. Some definite, some pipe dreams....

Love it! That's a killer spread you have worked out there! I like Steve's thinking - if I ever got a big plot of land, post lottery winnings, I'd have a heard of Dachshunds...and thus no rodents 🙂

Super Jealous!!

the water fountain is definitely a nice touch.  I'd also have a beer fridge in there somewhere if I had my way.  When I'm in the shop, I tend to hydrate with beverages that are only 94% water.. 😉 

 

I assume there's space on the right of the trailer to get in and out if you need something?

The potentially-wasted space caused by those wall girts definitely annoys my OCD. I've just finished up building a Big Ass Shelving Unit in our hangar, and one of the reasons I built it custom instead of just buying pallet racks was so I could butt the shelves right against the wall, rather than having that 8" gap.

Previously there were some short prefab steel shelves in this spot, short enough to go under the girt, but that annoyed me even more due to the wasted vertical space. This gives me at least twice as much storage, which matters since we don't have an attic for rarely-used stuff.

That's actually a really cool idea which I will likely blatantly copy!

We're looking at pallet racks up to 16-20' tall, and a small battery operated forklift to provide access. The forklift could also be retrofit with a person-basket for so we won't have to rent a lift ($300 minimum per rental) every time we need to put up conduit or move a light.

Please provide video...this will provide endless entertainment...but make sure to have the garage fridge FULLY stocked first LOL!!!
