We're building onto our house. We've been looking to upgrade for a while now. We just couldn't find another house we liked so we decided to just go ahead and add-on.

Theres a new bedroom, a full bathroom, a den/family room area, and of course....A NEW SHOP!

Here it is fellas. It's not huge, but it's better than what I've got now. 18x21 feet...perfect size for a "rocket lab".

Must get a little chilly in there in the winter, eh? Oh, it's not finished yet.

Sure....come on over.


We'll have a drywallin' party. I'll buy the beverages!

A cold front came through and it cooled down to 90degF, so don't forget your jacket.

:D

It's not the heat, it's the humidity :rolleyes:
Which right now in my part of Iowa is about 1067%!!!
Man, I can't wait for winter.

I did not see the mechanical parts for the "Silo Doors". You do want to be able to fly in a hurry, right?

I can't believe it's taken me this long to 'start' finishing my shop. I guess a new baby can have that effect on the hobby schedule. :)

Baby sister is now 1 1/2 yrs old and Mom/wife asked me when am I going to do something about that 'mess' out there. Say no more....I'm heading to the lumber yard.

There is still a lot of work to do, but here is the current status.

Northeast corner...

The south wall will be pegboard for rocket/airplane storage.

It's been a challenge building a shop that's alread full of stuff.

Well done,

No plans on heating the space. The winters here are relatively mild. If it gets too cold, I can plug in some space heaters.

Ryan...That is one serious shop!

tbzep. No motorcycle right now. I sold my '1972 Triumph Trident to a friend a couple of years ago. I've owned several bikes over the years, but I gravitate towards old british bikes. They just 'look' right to me. Hopefully someday I can restore an old Vincent Black Shadow in that shop. :)
