Even after the rearrangement of the shop after the first of the year, we are still just too tight for the work we are doing. So we have decided to add on to the side of the shop. I am planning on adding 12' by 32' to the current shop which is 24'x32. I am afraid it will still be too small but I guess you can never get them large enough. We had a maple tree die and had to take it down so the shop is going where the tree was. About all we have been removing are roots. The digging has been quite hard. Even with all of the lines located, my son hit the gas line that was going to the shop. Fortunately it was going to have to be relocated anyway so we just turned it off at the meter and will deal with it when we finish. My Internet line came right through the middle of where we were going to be digging, but AT&T came out and made a temporary connection for me till we get this done and them they will come back and do a permanent connection. This way I don't lose my Internet at home. My son have been running the CAT and I got on it a while Monday afternoon and squared up the area a little bit. We are going to get a backhoe in there this coming weekend and should get it all ready to have the concrete people in to form up and get it ready to pour. So at least with everything else we are doing, we also have the area outside the shop tore up, but it should be better in the near future. More to come as we get the shop ready.
