I'll bite on this. I have the tractor port and about 1/2-2/3 of the building it's attached to.

Plus the 10' X10' sun shade. If my tree keeps growing, I'll be able to say I'm a true shade tree mechanic.

We've been moving things around trying to make more room. We will soon be adding the winter gear. Here are a few pics of our shop.

I do most of my work in my 14" x 24' shop that I built as a woodworking shop, at the right: Picture 252a (Small).jpg

As it has a wood floor, any welding is done in or in front of the big shed, which houses one tractor & the Mule; Picture 323 (Custom).jpg . The far left part was built to house the pontoon (now sold) in the summer & tractors the rest of the time. Now it's a full-time tractor & equipment shed!

In the far background of the first pic is the metal carport used for attachment storage. ~~ grnspot

I work in my garage and sometimes in the basement shop if it's a small part. The garage is 20x22ft and in the winter the car has to go in there as well as the tractors, so right now I am cleaning it up for winter. I don't have any decent photos of the inside. I'm thinking of adding another 8 ft. on the back next summer.

I'll refrain from answering as there seems to be my wife's opinion that it is a garage. ;)

It's a work in progress. It's a 30x40 with a 15' lean to on the backside. I am slowly getting the inside finished and all the junk cleaned up. After we built the garage, we moved all our stuff from our old house and garage to this garage while our new house was being built. (Gotta have your priorities :smile1:. It's been 3 years now and there are still boxes and old junk sitting in the floor. They are slowly going away.

Here's my pole barn/garage . Started as a 28x28 which I thought was big at the time , turns out it wasn't . A few years later added the 28 x16 addition with an upstairs that maybe someday will be used as a woodwork shop.PA110269.jpg
