Hi folks, I recently did a shop tour video, and thought you might like it.

We had the shop built in 2012 by a local home builder. Its 20’ x 32’ with 10’ ceilings, I have a 10×10 office in the corner.

I am a shop rat like some of you, (I say that with great respect and pride!). I am typically in the shop between 5:30-6, and come in to go to bed. My wife said no plumbing, as she would virtually never see me…...but….what if…..ok, she’s smarter than me obviously…..

Thanks and I hope everyone is having a great day.

-- Im so impressed with what people can do, and I wonder how they do it. Thats what keeps me doing it.

Not sure if I am more impressed with your shop or your thick, green lawn.
You’re a lucky man to have such an awesome second home. Keep using it well.

I’m impressed, the video is a treat. it really showcases your talents.
Now looking at the video, and your projects, I get a better picture. Very talented models.

I would love a shop like that, above ground. I would have put a bathroom in… washing up and going w/out a headache is a priority… having a slop sink for cleaning glue ups, painting, whatever is invaluable. Wish I had one.

Keep up the great work.

WOW, you keep one neat and clean shop. I’m almost as much amazed at that as the cool stuff you have in there. Amazing!!

Those dioramas are far out. very cool place and projects.

Thanks you guys!

I try to keep it clean, especially now that im filming stuff, it can’t be good for the camera, so I try to keep it as clean as possible.
