    Ok Well I'll take it that you guys are interested! lol Might progress a bit different than the usual "build thread" but we'll give it shot!


    Started with a super crude floor plan about a year ago,

    Then on to a hole in the ground back in early July and foundation walls 26 x 40 foot.

    It's been a struggle lol but thanks for noticing. Been cheating with drawing contests, silly polls and recycling old posts with meaningless bumps whenever i had second to spare. Content has been seriously lacking, just as R2R introduces a fancy new "articles" spotlight to boot! I even tried to hire on some writers to help before I started the project just to keep up with some of the forum stuff, but it kind of fell through.


    Needles to say, I'm very much looking forward to getting back on here more, and I've got a trove of topics and half written articles waiting for me to return.

    Nope the new shop is all upstairs. I, or I should say my wife and I :) got a much needed garage out of the deal as well and a new office in the back of the garage first floor.

    Believe it or not, after mulling over our options; moving, commercial space, etc Adding on was by far the smartest move, most affordable, and the path of least resistance, being able to build it all ourselves. The thought of moving, and everything that goes with that, or not having my system close enough to be fully immersed at all times, was daunting and we added some much needed curb appeal to the house as well.

    more pics coming soon.

    Good news my friend! Now that the project is finally nearing completion, I'm happy to say that you're only getting minimally neglected at this point lol, which is a huge improvement over the blanket of neglect I've smothered everyone with the last few months. Your pack's cut and looking awesome. Ready to go out Friday for sure:)
