    Default My New Workshop

    due to a few family issues i had to move into my new workshop sooner than expected.

    had to run armoured cable from the main fuse box in the house to the garage, so had to dig up the lawn. new fuse box, complete new wiring in the garage. the 50 year old wiring was poo! new switches, plug sockets and lighting.

    had to make the rotting doors secure and fix a big fooking hole at the end of the garge and leads to the coal shed.

    this weeking im pciking up some angle iron to make a work bench for the mill etc...










    big plans for the summer -

    remove the roof
    raise the height of the garage as its too low
    replace roof which will fix the leak at the same time
    remove the partiton to the coal shed and extend the workshop
    add a new partition to seperate the car from thw workshop
    add central heating

    oh first i need some money

    You need a 'Go away' sign on the door.

    hehe. A good mate of mine (almost 50 y/o bachelor) has a wooden sign at the entrance to his house.

    Ain't it the truth.

    ... and an old comfy car seat, worktop space for a kettle, Tea Bags, Biccies, small radio tuned to Radio 2 (or do they use Ipods these days) and an intercom to the main house so that the missus can let you know when your Tea is ready.
