                  We have air piped but really only use about 6 of the hydrants consistantly. You can see some bottles to the right and I will get some pics of welding equipment setups here at some point. This place is set up for both projects and pit stop type service. Lincoln Pro Cut 60 Plasma, a 255 Lin wire feeder, an AC/DC machine and a Miller Sq wave 300 for alum, mostly on irrigation pipe. I have some portables also, 2 on trailers and one GS8000 in my service truck.

                    My service truck is older but road ready, 20 hp engine on air comp, all enclosed everything, nut and bolt bin and pipe fittings, steel rack, vices, power pipe threading, chop saw, heavy impact, complete mechanic tools,, its really loaded. The shopping welder isnt something recent, I was going to make something fancy and that worked so well that it just kind of stayed. At one time I had transformer mounted underneath to convert 480 3ph to 240 single for use in a factory.

                        Brethren is in Manistee county and I am inland about 20 miles. The shopping cart was a hurried deal, the real change I made to it was to widen the front wheels to give it some improved stability. The sidewalls are 18 on the building and the doors are all 14 high. The ones in the front are 14 wide and 16 wide. There are 2 more you cant see, one in the side to access the welding stuff in summer and one in corner in rear, both are 14x14. The loading dock has an 8x8 and I have a 4 ft fan in frame that sits in it for paint booth and it takes a couple minutes and a couple screws to remove it if I want to use dock. I actually use the dock ouside more for loading equipment on trucks. The steamer (actually high pressure washer) has the hose fed thru the wall with the controls on the outside so I can wash without opening doors in winter. There is drain in here so I can thaw trucks and cars too. Over night they are dry to work on. I will incluse a pic of paint area, there is a curtain that rolls down.

                          Oh, yes, the ceiling is about 20 ft in center, maybe 21. There are only minor changes I would do again and one was not to be so busy when I built. Ha. We did all our selves, my helper and myself. We even have TV's in here.

                            Great looking shop! If I had to do mine over again I would make it twice as big. Oh well, maybe some day I can expand it.

                              Its work to keep it up too. Sometimes smaller is ok if you dont have a pressing need for space. For me this works great as I dont have to move stuff for crisis type things. I do however keep cleaned out and if it isnt actively being worked on it isnt in here. This isnt a storage building.
