Still got alot to do... I have already added a 10 x 20 store front. and will be adding another 8x20 section to the side for tool storage and aircompressor.

still looking for a tig welder I want to do aluminum... so many options to choose from so little money left lol.
 I'm thinking about putting a carport out back that I can close in and use for a paint booth.

no contracters plumbers or electricians here.  I had a company pour the slab.  Other than that I did everything with my own two hands.   at times I had one or two ppl to help me hold something up while I got it where I wanted it.  In the pic  thats my dad he used his tracktor for a make shift scafold, my mom was the gofor. not in pic my gf helpin with paint, and my daughter.  It took me way too long to build it because it was all out of pocket. 

It's not the biggest but i built it, it's solid, and It's 100% paid for.

I just scored a 40' steel container with lights already in it. will make for nice storage
after I fix the floor in it.

Finally!  the concrete guys poured my new pad so I can expand the shop.  only took them 4 months  :eek:

the new side will be for welding.  I picked up a millermatic 252 and a water cooled dynasty 300 havn't had much time to mess with the tig yet but the mig is so much better than the last pos I had.
  I've also built a paint booth with a positive pressure system it's not huge but I can just fit a quad cab truck in to paint.


just saw tims old post about having to pull permits...  I had permits and inspections on everything, just because I did it myself does not mean I got to skip the processes
