Finally, after nearly 3 years of planning and procrastinating, we've started the construction of a new shop for the primary purpose of building basses. It's a modest 16' x 20' with an 11' peak but it's the largest dedicated shop space I've had on my own. Today the foundation piers, floor and perimeter joists, and decking were completed. The contractor says that it should be done by Friday. For those TB'ers that have been to the homestead, I've placed the new building next to the large open shed to maximize it's utility. The BBQ pit is gone. The new building will allow the purchase of some new tools and give some organization to my various processes and stages of construction. It will also help me increase productivity. Then, hopefully, this will lead to a more commercial operation in the future.
