Default You asked for it

Here it is. 400 square feet of insulated manufacturing and engine building space. Complete with 5000 watts of electric heat to keep it at 40 degrees in the winter, 2500 cfm dust collection system. Along with a kerosene heater to get it to 70 so its comfortable so the cost of electric doesn't kill me. Eletric is 100 amp service from the house with 220 for the saw, compressor, heat and dust collector. On the other side of the saw is about 1000 board feet of oak, walnut and cherry to take up even more space.

Believe it or not, I built 2 engines and ported 4 heads at the same time in here while running my wood working business. In the back ground there are 3 pieces in progress for a woman in Cocoa Florida that is putting them in a national magazine. I also share the space with a 28 inch snow blower, kids electric jeep and tractor. I need more room!! But then I would just fill it up with more stuff.

Inside shot just before the big "Might as well Spill the Beer on the New Floor Since it Failed the City's Final Inspection Party". The bikes now sit in the front garage, out of the way of projects...
