    I ran out of room in my old workshop,and got tired of having to move stuff out of the way in order to do anything in it.The old shop is 12x16,the new one is 14x24,and I'm loving all the empty space I have.
    For the last few weeks I've been wiring,insulating,and finishing the walls on the new shop.I even installed A/C in it,and I'm really liking that.
    The last 4 days I've been trying to get everything put together and moved into it.
    I think I'll be spending a lot of time reloading this summer!

    I still need to weld a storage rack together for all of my ammo cans,but I should have it all done in a couple weeks.

    Let me know how that works out for you! LOL

    I had my old shop built in the early 90's,and then had it moved to this place 12yrs ago.It was showing it's age,and I also needed more room so I had to bite the bullet and build this new one.

    If I can ever get rid of all my custom motorcycle stuff I have,I'll never run out of room.Been thinking of building one bad azz adult go-cart with all the stuff.I just won't give it away for nothing,and between the pro street bike,and the custom Harley that I built for my dad-but I got run over on it a week before he was going to get it in 05.I had around 80k in both of these bikes in parts and my labor.

    I'm jealous. I wish I had a set up like that.

    well about two years ago i bought a 10x14 storage building just for reloading and working on guns, and thought it would be too much room. now two years later i wish i had gone bigger like at least 12x24. so next year, i plan on either going to a bigger one with a loft for storage or build onto the one i have now.

    There are hospitals that aren't that clean! It's actually kind of scary looking in an OCD sort of way. :D

    Congrats.

    Thanks,I always try to have 4-5 different powders that will work for every gun I load for.The temperature changes in Texas are too unpredictable,and you just never know what it's going to be when it's time to hunt or target shoot.
    It could be near 100* today,and 40* tomorrow,and loading with just one type of powder won't work most of the time in different temperature changes.

    No,just a 10k btu window unit that I built into the back wall.It cools the building off in just a few minutes.I've always just used portable propane heaters to warm things up in the cooler months.
