  • New Shop...??

    My wife and I just bought a vacation property that will also be our retirement home when the time comes. It has a great detached garage that will hopefully serve as a new shop for me. It's about the same size as my current shop but much newer and cleaner.

    It's blank slate.

    The deal closes in mid May so I have lots of time to plan how I want to set it up.

    Looks good! Were you lucky enough to get a tractor, loader and snowblower with the property? It looks like you'll need them!!

        That's quite the load of snow on the roof. You must be pretty far north.

            About a half hour NW of Powassan.

              After a quick Google search I now know where Powasson is.

                John,

                I recognized that garage. My wife and I looked at the property about a month ago. It's a lovely cottage.

                  Looks like you have some room to add an addition if you wanted to!

                    Sweet! I've got total garage/shop, living/ working in the country, envy!


                    Does the lake have fish?


                    What is your heat source? Is it well insulated?

                    Doors in front of overhead doors and a small porch at man door would really save some heat loss.



                    Looks awesome!

                      The only heat source at this time is a woodstove. The building is very well insulated and so are the overhead doors. Until we take possession I'm not even going to worry about any of that. This is jusy going to be a cottage workshop until I retire and we move there permanently. Eventually I'd like to look at underfloor heating of some kind.

                        My parents had friends that lived in the Powassan area. Nice place. The garage roof looks sturdy enough by the looks of the snow load on the roof. Best of luck with the place!
