  I haven't been posting much lately. Been hard after getting house and shop plans finished.  Finally got wife to OK plans for house, having a set of blueprints drawn up now. Going to be nice to have a 48'x60' shop all to myself. Start date is still 2yrs out. When finished wife will have her dream house, and I will have my bike shop, woodworking shop, office, private bar & train room all under one roof.
  Posting a Visio drawing to plans.

I would suggest doubling the shop size--that way you might not run out of space for two years (three, if you are lucky)

No such thing as too much shop or layout space, they are only illusions fostered by the female of the species.

That's why you take over the living room...leaving just a little space for TV, sofa, etc. and everything else for layout. Well, that's my idea.
The plans look great, now get to work!

Actually, I made the shop smaller in the final drawings. Too much space could lead to getting too many projects going. So, by keeping my space to a manageable size I can get more done with the time I have.

Dawg,

And if you do run out of space in the shop... Boxcars.

Just kidding, but those new steel pole buildings seem to be a really good value if you ever need massive amounts of space.
