Nice garage, looks like you have the space for a series or a 110 project. Do those dormers mean a 2nd story?

Yeah, I have a second floor and I have 32' to the rear. Plenty of room for a 110 and more.

A bit of Canada come South for the Winter

Here's my new "Gatineau Garage" courtesy of the RURR and Canadian Tire.

Things are a bit more organized now, I had to move alot of crap to build this thing. I drove down Sherman Ave and left a note for the scrap guy to give me a call. He showed up and hauled away a large pile of old shocks, brake discs, clutches, and all other manner of cut offs and broken parts. I also built a little bench out of some of the scrap lumber that has accumulated over the years. I run a portable propane buddy heater off a 20lb tank, it helps take the edge off a bit. This is luxury compared to working outside in the elements!

Plus we have declared it to be Canadian soil kind of like the embassies here in town. That gives us diplomatic status whenever we are inside it. Anyone up for 15 year old imports?

As advertised here:

Come on, it never snows in DC.

Nice Dave, good to see you are moving up. You'd think that thing would act like a greenhouse and actually be fairly warm.

I had it up to 70 today.

Snow loads will be dealt with by more ratchet straps across the rafters.

70? I don't even keep the house at 70, but if you are used to working in flipflops...you do what youve got to do.

The tarp shelter won't hold anything above about 6 inches of dry fluffy snow. You will have to sweep it off with a broom or push it from the inside so it falls off the top portion. Be careful because they collapse easily under not that much snow.

Well, weatherbug said it was 36 this afternoon when I first went out there. The thermometer sitting on the spare engine in the corner gave a reading of 50 something. I put the heater on and soon the thermo was reading almost 70. Although, it was right above the heater so not an accurate reading for the entire space. Nevertheless, the shelter does a good job of keeping the wind off and making it feel like one is actually working in a decent environment. "Jefferson" on this board was over this afternoon and can concur that it is quite nice.

The plywood and cardboard "flooring" covering the dirt does help with that too. Better than rolling around in the dirt.

JL,
I'm in New Zealand at the moment but post some photos of the saw (and move) when I get home.

Dave's shelter was suprisingly warm, and bright. The material diffuses natural light in a way that makes for a nice working environment. During daylight hours you can work inside and under the truck without additional lighting. It was close to 5PM and the sunlight still available was plenty.

I've been doing some house hunting lately. Yesterday, I took the truck over to see if it would fit under the carport.

On the bright side you can trim the snorkel tube to lower it.
