    2000 sq ft total. About 500 sq ft of office space. The office space is gonna be used for my gf's buisness that has out grown her house. 1500 sq ft or so shop floor is mine. :saweet: :saweet: Gonna wall off the small portion next to the bay door for a small office of my own. Plus all the overhead/balcony area for storage. Best part? $.50 sq/ft= $1000 a month. :cool1:

    No more beggin space in my gramps barn. :D

    I'm happy and envious at the same time.

    I've always wanted a nice BIG WORKSHOP!

    The place I work at is 5000 square feet (50x100), with a 10 ton overhead crane, 2 offices, huge bathroom/changeroom, etc etc. We're outgrowing it pretty quick but the rent on it is only $1700 US per month. This includes our heat and light.

    Our shop is in a building owned by the local power company. They used to use it for "in-house" maintenance and repairs. Because the power company built it and owns it there are no meters for power...so no bill either.

    I just wish it was about three times the size.

    1500 square feet is definjitely enough elbow room though. Looks like a great find Joe! :cool1:

    Are you going to be able to get a truck under that catwalk over the door though? It looks a little low, although it could just seem that way from the pic.

    For where we live, $.50 sq/ft is atleast $.40 sq/ft cheaper than any other shop I looked at of comparable size. The owner of this complex is a 75 year old lady whos husband died awhile back. She doesn't care what she charges for rent as long as people send it to her on time every month. If she kicks the bucket and her kids take over it'll change though. :crazy:

    The cat walk is 7'2 3/4". My truck is exactly 7'2" with the aired down 42's. :blush: I'm picking up a set of 35" rollers just for that purpose though. To get anything else in there Ima have to think of something different. :crazy:

    If your land is flat and usable it would cost close to $6,000,000 in the California bay area!!!

    Nice place Jethro!!!!!

    The rates here are normally outrageous too, we just happened to swing a smokin deal where we are. The last shop i worked at was 12,000 square feet and after rent, power and crane rental their pockets were $25,000 lighter each month.

    New buildings are cool, but that kind of rent really messes with the bottom line IMO.

    Nice lookin shop KIDJ!

    Funny how much the rates can change depending on where you are.

    Nothing like elbow room though. I get alot more exercise than I use to.

    "Now where did I lay that ratchet down, OH, its way over there. :crazy: "

    Ah jealousy, sweet, sweet envy. Good for you Congrats!

    Real Estate sure is intriguing. In Toronto, it is fairly common to see people purchase perfectly good homes, way over priced at 1 or 1.2 million, only to see them tear them down to build something new. What do these people do for a living is what I want to know?
