Default Finally.............my new shop

Recently, my wife and I have started a new chapter (adventure). I sold my parts business and semi retired. We picked up root and are in the process of moving to our home in northern Wisconsin (love to snowmobile).

So, our old house is sold (6 days). That mean time to get going on the new shop. 40x56 steel building............radiant heat floors.............high ceilings.............a hoist....... and more room for all of our stuff. I now can keep it call in one place!

The push is on the get the site cleared and prepped, in order to pour concrete this year

Off we go! I suspect the fill is going to be a killer.

It is actually to the left of most pics. I snap a few in relation. I am back at my old house now getting ready to move. I understand they got the driveway in yesterday. Today, they will clear the trees off the actual build site and start build the base for the concrete.

Welcome to Wisconsin!
Looks like a nice place to retire! I love the northwoods.
