I am looking at a home with a 2400 SF insulated and air conditioned shop building. I want it sooooo bad. In Texas this would give me an extra six months of shop usage.

Wow! That's cool!

Purron, thanks for the reminder about building a garage. DW and I are interested in something to protect our travel trailer. Right now we store it off-site. I checked the web site for Amish builders you mentioned in the other thread. Good Stuff.

Regarding the Gretchen Wilson song and video - I had not seen the video till now - are you going to get the camouflage bra? Does DH have plenty of camouflage undergarments? It's tough to keep the redneck image without the appropriate attire.

+1 That way you have everything inside, safe and secure from the elements or criminal activity. And the smaller the house, the less expense and bother.

What can you do with a tractor? I'm interested that you only have one tractor- I've found that at a minimum, you need a tractor with a backhoe and a skid steer for most any project- can't imagine planting daffodils without the backhoe. Brings a new dimension to gardening when you have to be able drive in a tractor if there is ever a chance you'll want another hole dug?

At our last house, our neighbors had a great laugh when we put in a row of plants along our driveway. I used a the backhoe to dig a long trench for the plants, then pushed the dirt back in. Before we moved, my little tractor did a lot of chores in the neighborhood.

Nice garage!

And the smaller the house, the less likely it is for friends and relatives to stay too long or even think about moving in.

BTW, loving your new kitten avatar

Thanks. I hope you'll understand, but I'm resisting showing your message to DH. I'm afraid he'd agree with you that we need more than one tractor.

I'm sure, like you, DH will do lots of chores in the neighborhood. He's the kind of guy to likes to help people. One of the many reasons I adore him.
