I figured I would share a photo... I know I have been kind of MIA for the last couple years, but the rental house yard was too small to really use the tractor on so it just sat. Now our new house has a nice big yard and even some wooded area that used to be farm land so the Massey will get more use.

She just looked so nice in front of the house, I just had to grab a photo tonight while using the trailer to edge one of the gardens.

No kidding!  The poor thing was just left for winter snowblower duty!  Nothing but hard punishing duty for a few years kinda took its toll...  I need to repaint my narrowed front wheels and had to repaint a spare grille while I sandblast the good one because it too was starting to rust all over.  But I have awesome shop space again and the need to work her more too...  Very happy about that!

I'm glad you can get more use out of it and give it a nice shop to hang around in.

Thanks guys... I have seriously missed working on stuff, but when we sold our old house, the new one did not have a garage or a shop... just a little 12'x8' shed!  

 

The new place has an 800 sq ft two car garage... and a two story, 1500 square foot shop.  The shop is walk out to the back yard on the upper level too!   The down side is that the two car shop on the lower level needs a cement slab floor poured as it is just dirt... but I still have the garage.  The upper level has three rooms.  One half of the upper level is my wood shop, one quarter is a nice room with walls and ceiling done in rough cut pine, this is my machine shop.  The other quarter was given to son #3 who is quite small engine guy and has his own fleet of tractors himself!   I also have enough space to have a serious tractor junk yard that would never be seen from the house or anywhere in the yard!   I am quite happy with the move!   It's also sweet to separate out the car garage, machine shop, and wood shop seeing as how those things don't all play nice together!

Here are a few photo's..... :D

Here is my garage, Jeep parking and mechanical work shop. I need to insulate, drywall and build workbenches, but it has a walk up attic with a staircase.

Then a few photos of my shop.... It does not look huge from the back yard, but when you see it from the back, you get a better idea! There are roll up garage doors too, they are open in the photo.

Then a couple of my work shop too. It needs a little work and paint, but so much space!  The upper shop has it's own forced hot air heating system too!   The house it self is very nice, it's a 1969 Colonial.  Very well built and solid, a little dated in areas like the bathrooms and kitchen, but all new paint and carpet throughout. Plus $3000 of work put into the fireplace and furnace chimney paid by the seller.   :thumbs:
