    We get posession on the 24th of June. That night we have movers moving all our heavy stuff over.
    We;ll probably end up doing the rest.
    Not sure what to do with the blazer body/frame if I don't sell it by then. Trailer I guess???
    Measured the shop garage door. 7'__" wide, by...6'4" high! So with the stock jimmy, I will have to let the air out of the 32's to fit in! So I don't think getting a lift is in the plans anytime soon. If I put on really tiny tires, and had, say 5" of lift. Would it fit? Or depends on the tire size? I need donut tires :crazy: And the Jimmy is approx. 14' long. So I will have room for a 2.5' bench. then a walkway around it.
    Although I don't know if it's 20x20 measuring from the outside, or inside.
    Need to think of a heater that takes up minimal space for the winter.
    We need to move all our stuff by the july 15th at noon.
    But we leave on the 13th for holidays...
    I hope we have enough time to move everything. I have exams for the next 2 weeks. And I haven't packed anything from my current shop yet.
    Great :crazy:

    Well get it together and get a move on (literally) :grin:
    I'm sure you'll get things figured out when you get there.
    Good luck.

    Not to worry...

    I would worry more about getting all your stuff there first!...any obstacles you encounter can be dealt with after your settled in for a while...like the garage door-- :hack: :hack: :whistle: and any other things you need to modify to your specs..you might end up adding on to the garage,or even building a bigger new one someday!...(maybe another carport in your future?). :crazy:


    As for heat,they make some nice infra-red stip heaters that mount on the ceiling much like flouresent lights,that run on propane or natural gas...my friend put one in his shop last winter--it works great,and does not use much fuel--his ran all winter on one 100 lb bottle of propane--about 50 bucks worth!...I'm tempted to get one myself--I could get back a lot of space in my shop the wood stove and its stovepipes waste--and safer too..(if I get to stay here much longer that is! :frown1: )..

    I was thinking about picking up a woodstove. I have one in this shop right now, and it heats it up real cosy. But I don't think it would be good for the amount of room it takes up.
    I will look into those propane ones you are talking about. if they are that cheap to run it will be worth it!!

    have you put some pic of the new place yet?i may have missed them.

    too bad i could not have bought you old place i liked the look of it.

    yeah the catalitc heater, that run off propane are nice, but if the garage/shop is not too big, then you could get away with a couple of halogin (sp) flood lights.

    I have two in my un insulated garage, and they hea it up pritty good, i have one where my work bench is and one near the door, works good, and a bonus for the good work light, and will give you a tan!!

    Nope, haven't gotten any pictures yet. Camera was dead when I went down there last.
