I used to live in a 19k square foot burlap bag factory that was built in 1941. Had an apartment in one corner. Built out both a metal shop and woodworking shop eventually. Had a few indoor motorcycle races until I hit a pole with the bike and slid into my kitchen. Even had an indoor range until we started using blackpowder and couldn't deal with the smoke. Then switched to longbows.

Smack in the middle of Houston, Texas. Excuse the old-school stitch. It was done around 1999.

Hehehe, that's awesome! So funny. Cool place.

Good thing it doesn't get cold there. Would be tough to heat.

Sold off all the hotrod parts and cars a while back after the mini-truck punks invaded. Bob's better, but still not up to snuff.

Nope, not Dennis. Randy. This is outside of Duncan.....

Not sure if this is a shop with a house, or a house with a shop, but it works for me!

Not really, and I was only there until 2001. But it's in the background of some other pics. It's really not anything to look at.

Front entrance


Front entrance looking out


The big speakers. I'm moving out and the bike warehouse is moving in.

I did a Mueller building, 40 x 60, with a 2 story apartment down one side (still in progress) The living, bath, small kitchen and 1 bdrm are down stairs, upstairs is 2 more rooms with a mezzanine to be open to the shop area. This pic is before the 2nd floor was framed out, a few weeks ago

That's cool Sean. So your shop space is going to be like 60' long by 20' or 25' wide?
I'd love to see/hear more about your plans.

I started a thread, but have to get more pics this weekend,

http://www.garagejournal.com/forum/s...d.php?t=217583

Yeah the shop area is roughly 26 x 60 on the right, and on the front left corner an area 12 x 14 open as well. I did this in sketchup today to get a better idea of the final layout / finish
