It was sarcasm...LOL


I've experienced your winters and I think it's safe to say you probably don't want to experience mine. Not as bad as my neighbors to the north though.

DougT is the official GTTalk.com judge of too many tractors or not questions.

And before we drag him over, answer this first. When jammed together, does your collection cover more or less than 1.5 acres?


Sad to say, less. Guess I know the answer to my question.

Who are you kidding , just stand there and look confused...when she forces you to speak say " I don't know how it happened " and try to look real scared. BUT DON'T SPEAK AFTER THAT. 

 

GOOD LUCK

Never thought about a second floor. I still have the shop and the shed complex but dirt floors don't thrill me after have this concrete floor.

Unfortunately "too much" is a relative term. Fortunately that means you can never be wrong. It's all a matter of perspective. It looks like you have plenty more room before it becomes too much.

I've shared this tip before--old tarps. Always keep several things covered under old tarps and always keep an old tarp on hand. Slide the new toy in with the rest and cover it with the old tarp for a few months. Shiny new tarps draw attention. Wrinkled dingy tarps blend in. If any questions come up, the answer is "had it for a while". Another handy relative term. She's probably wise to me but it works......


I'm afraid I know exactly what that look is!


I'd watch that Farnsworh guy. Seems that he knows what your wife's look is. LOL

What?? No problem is seen in this picture!!  You have Tons of room in there, what the heck!  My wife gets one of the house garage sides for winter, but now SHE has it full of old x-mas decorations and other junk she got tired of hauling from attic. Heh" Heh" It's HER crap in way mostly and she puts up with having to squeeze around it all just to get in the car. I just sit back and chuckle. Besides I thought YOU were giving up the Hobbie too, what's the deal with that?

First of all I have learned to never get involved in domestic disputes.
But suspect she was marking her territory and a reasonable compromise can be arrived at.

I agree that concrete is nicer when working on a machine. But dirt shed storage is. Better than no storage.
Do you remember when all machine sheds were dirt floors?
Those old-timers knew a thing or two, but I had to ask why there were always planks on the floor they never parked on.
I was told that it absorbed moisture and prevent rust.

Hey, I never said I was getting out of the hobby... more than a few times anyway.  I've tried in the past and it just doesn't work.  I've learned that, if I want to buy another tractor, all I need to do is say I'm getting out of the hobby and they seem to come to me.
