This will be my first attempt at a blog. I will try to document the building of my dream shop and the property improvements that go along with it. Not quite sure how this works, but I will jump in and see how it goes.
From the beginning
About a year ago, my wife and I found a 54+ wooded acre parcel with a creek in the back that seemed to be the place we could develop as we wished, with plenty of room and privacy.
There was field on the ridge that we decided to plant an orchard of pecan, hazelnut, walnut, almond, and apple. This meant that we needed to install irrigation.
We got some roads cleared and found the spot for tractor shed and shop.
Built the tractor shed first, then the shop
Once the shop was up and dried in (I did not build the shop – contracted it out), I started working on the interior. Bathroom was first room to build.

Things left to do:
SHOP – Wiring, floor coverings, noise room, finishing room, work tables, Cyclone setup and install, tool setup.
PROPERTY – road maintenance, sawmill setup, brush pile chipping, wood storage shed repairs, land clearing for pine tree plantings, fence install, finish two pump houses.
