The Wrench Works

Introduction

The Wrench Works, that is, my Service Garage — the building I'll work on my Car Projects in — is currently planned to be a 25'x40' structure with an attached 12' carport.

While the Service Garage is critical for engaging with my hobby, the fact of the matter is that the Storage Garage is the keystone to being able to afford to move forward with everything — and that means that the Service Garage will have to play second fiddle, outfitted just to be adequate for my needs. Without the Storage Garage in place, I can't afford to get a home, which will allow me to build the structures I need to engage with my hobby in any meaningful way. So, with the Service Garage essentially an add-on once the home and Storage Garage are in place, it's an expense I don't know how I will afford since I can't even afford the home right now.

As with the Storage Garage, the most reasonable option I've found is a kit from VersaTube — this time, though, it will need to be custom engineered. It will hopefully allow me to inexpensively get it up with my own two hands so that I can begin engaging with my cars again and return them to the road as soon as possible.

This is the plan for the Wrench Works as I see it now, and just as with the rest of my Hobby Complex, it needs to remain flexible to adapt to any changes that may happen with my life going forward, so check back here to see if my plans for this building change.

Home on the Range

I happen to love rural areas, but this time of year the range can get pretty gnarly to live on.

It seems that, just to prove my point about the Hobby Complex plan being fluid, it already needs to be revised.

Boxed In

Normally, being boxed in is an issue, but within my Hobby Complex, the Boxes are a row of sheds that allow me to free up work space — and freedom is good.
