Finally time for a new shop
« on: August 03, 2018, 01:50:03 PM »
Finally pulled the trigger on a new shop. I have just outgrown the basement but it has served me well. At 2550 sq ft I know its already too small but will have to make due. 











Started framing today

That's a good sized building. What kind of shop is it going to be?

It is primarily a woodworking shop. I provide custom millwork for residential builders.

I'm driving down the freeway this morning about 8:30.  So after the main rush hour but still a bit of traffic - moving at 65-75mph.  There is a big, bright yellow (brand new looking) crane - 8 wheels.  Real sweet looking.  Four front steering and 4 rear.  The kind with the large turret cab, extending boom and a truss like folding boom tip along side.  He's bouncing along at 70-75 mph cutting in and out of traffic!  I just shake my head and back off the peddle to let him move away.

Kind of.  I looked at these and they are more robustly built than what I saw.  The cab was only a 1 person size and the boom was lighter weight than anything I could find on the web. The closet I saw was a Demag (by Terex) scale model.  It was Liebehr yellow, though.  What I saw was the sports car of cranes - at least the way he was driving it! :D  It was 4 axle but single large tires on each, not duals.

That's a pretty low number.

Just remember:  No layout plan survives first contact with the work.
