Default New shop at my house

My fiance and I moved to Orangevale, Ca back in December to get some more space for the kids to roam and to finally get the cars f out of the garage and into a shop. While it isn't a vast landscape, we're finally out of suburbia and into a small piece of land we can enjoy. It's .6 acres and almost fully landscaped with a dozen citrus trees, grapes, etc. With the little uptick in the economy, architects are booked out months for plans. I wanted around 1000 feet for my shop and ended up finding a company called Barn Pros. that sells a 960 foot shop with good plans through Home Depot. After doing my research, we bought. The whole thing lands here May 1st so it'll be interesting to see how it comes. It's stick frame, comes with a good comp roof, garage doors, 6 windows, and a fiberglass man door. So far, the service has been top notch. Now I'm dealing with the county for my permit, tree fines (yeah, I guess I don't own them according to the county), and the concrete guy. Here's the pics so far.

Congrats on the expansion--I don't know how I could live without the space I have now, even after spending all of my 20s (and part of my 30s) living in apartments and a duplex. Keep us posted on the shop. I've been wishing for one going on six years now . . .

How much do they nail you for when you want to cut a tree? I know the oaks are protected in Sacramento county, but what else?

Thanks I appreciate the congrats. Yes Sac County has been very entertaining regarding the big oak back there. When I bought this house last year, I called the "tree people" as they're known at the county office to see if it was a heritage Oak, but it wasn't registered. However, this year when I went through the planning process, the inspector put a tree hold on my final permit, with a provisional permit to build. This means they want to inspect all operations during the build to ensure that we don't disturb that tree.......even though it's 23 feet away. These inspections are on top of the normal building inspections to be done as scheduled. The liberal.....I mean woman at the tree office has also decided that we should pay a $1500 one time fine for "encroaching on a protected oak that has the potential of growing a branch in my construction site's direction one day" (her words). When asked how she arrived at her figure, she said she uses a my site plan to determine how much potential damage the tree could take IF it grew a branch in that direction. Basically, she made it up.

Last night I explained the situation to my kids using ice cream as the example instead of the Oak. They were confused in that they paid for the ice cream, and now have to pay again to enjoy it. Welcome to dealing with the government kids.

That is some real BS for sure. Holy cow!

Good luck on the new shop! I grew up in a house that my back yard was the driveway, and my front yard was the parking lot of the restaurant next door. Not a blade of grass to be seen. Now living in the country on 2 acres and having two 36x28 garages I sometimes have to pinch myself to believe it! Having that back yard shop is a dream come true without question.

No rakes, no bikes, etc, etc. My wife and daughters call that garage "Man Town" Lol......


I look forward to watching you build up yours.
