A little update, sort of gargae related (you can see the side of it)!

After a month the grass has come a long way.



Still working on the grass closest to the pavers. I should have seeded it at the same time as the rest of the yard. I also added a fence and a gateway to grow a vine on that I made out of the crushed canopy. Maybe grapes.

I have that table too, but I don't have pavers. Liquid Patio, they bring it in a truck, my buddy and I smoothed it out, and then we drank beer and ate steaks.

That barn-style looks cozy! Is that white stuff insulation? If you insulated the floor, how did you do it? What are the dimensions?

Well, here it is. 1985 15 x 48 Sharp lathe. 1960 Cincinnatti Toolmaster Milling machine, and everything works on it.

And that Sportster is gone. In it's place, is a KTM 950 Supermoto, and I ride that CT-70 every day.

I've got a 7 1/2 hp rotary phase converter. Only the mill is 3ph, it's 1 1/2 hp, the lathe has a 5 hp single phase motor, and right next to the mill is a Lincoln 250/250 Tig welder, also single phase, I had an electrician come in and make sure nothing caught fire when I fired anything up, and he told me to never turn that welder all the way up.

Do you see the piston sitting on the lathe? 500in, Top Alcohol Hemi, brand new, someone forgot to tighten a rod bolt, and no, it wasn't me.

White stuff is bubble wrap insulation. Dimensions: 16X40 with 1/2" thick treated plywood floors. Afterall this is Louisiana and severe cold weather is normally a non-issue.

thought I'd finally share mine

A very humble laundry room, just big enough for my tool chests and some shelving. All they power tools and other misc equipment is in trunks in the pantry

The DR350 barely fits inside...

The KLR is just too big

Back in Texas I had a one car garage set up with everything I needed, plenty of workbench space and all my common tools on pegboards. Now that I'm in Santa Fe I just can't afford a place with a garage, maybe some day...
