Just closed on selling my shop today...oh and the house that goes with it. I will be living it large with the inlaws in a townhouse for a couple of months while trying to get my new shop/home built. At that point, it will be time to start construction on the new home which means I really wont have a shop until the house is done. All of my welding equip and many of my tools will be packed away in some dark corner of a storage facility feeling all abandoned and alone. Have any of you ever gone through this and if so , how did you cope with that empty feeling?

it sounds like it's time to go shopping
start spending your time at the junkyards
you'll need spare parts for all your "future projects" and the inlaws will be very happy to help you get in the new shop when you start coming home all greasy from the pull-it yard.
next thing you know you'll have a shop again and a bunch of junk to build there

The biggest motivation that I have is knowing that the new shop will be over 3 times the size of the one I just sold. The lot will also be about 3 times as big also. Lots more room to store lots more parts <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0"> Oh and the house will be about 700sq ft larger also but who the hell cares about the house <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

Build the shop first. Then you'll have all your tools handy for building <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

I know exactly how you feel. I didn't get to work on any of my Cruisers for the past nine months while I moved the wife into our new house and build my new shop and storage barn. The only advice I can give is to dream about how nice it will be when it is finished. I am sure pleased with how mine turned out and am thrilled to finally get to work on the project trucks.

I have a few pics of my new shop just after moving in, but before final completion. They are here

I agree - start hoarding parts and tools! Also might be a good time to do stuff you otherwise might not have time to do. I was with out a project for a while so I spent a lot of time getting other stuff done so that I had time to work on project in the future...

Thanks, George <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0"> And Yes Sir, now that the shop is done the trucks are getting attention. Last weekend I sand blasted the truggy frame and tomorrow it goes under the torch for shortening and narrowing. <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce2.gif" border="0">
