We are at long last finished with the construction of our new workshop. In spite of the many obstacles the talented bureaucrats in my local planning and permit department presented, and an unusually long and wet spring, we now have a CO (certificate of occupancy), meaning we are now allowed to move all our tools, machinery, benches, etc. from our cramped temporary barn into our new digs)
The new shop has 4,000 square feet of floor space (about a 1/3rd larger than the old building) with 28′ high setup area to assemble our “lofty” projects, lots of windows for good natural lighting on the work benches, and a high efficiency heat pump to keep us cool/warm year round.
Thank you many times over to our wonderfully patient clients and friends for their encouragement and tremendous support throughout this rebuilding process.
We are planning an open house in the Fall, so stay tuned for a date and time.
P.S. – To those curious folks wondering what this last photo is about; you are looking at 500 tons of dirt that the fire marshall required in order to build a heavy duty road from the workshop down to our pond.
Building codes, ordinances and regulations…. don’t ya just love ’em!!
