We are excited as we placed a bid on 2 lots next to each other that total 2.25 acres. The land is zoned rural and so I do not think there are any restrictions on it. I elected to have a 7 day option period to ensure I can build a workshop on it. A fella down the road has two large dump trucks parked and has as large pole barn set up. There are some trailers around the area, maybe not where I would raise my chidren. The location is less then a mile from downtown Lytle (20 miles from San Antonio), TX so the location is not too remote at all.
I am excited myself. Currently we run a cabinet shop out of our home. Our home is two story and large so we build the cabinets in the garage and bring them inside in what would be the downstairs ‘formal’ living room for finishing process. We turn off HVAC and have lots of windows for ventilation. I have even considered switcing to water based lacquer because of our current situation.
We intend on placing a 60’ by 40’ on slab foundation on the lot. I have entertained the purchasing two 30’ by 40’ units and laying a 30’ by 100’ slab and allowing a ‘breezeway’ or drive through area between the two separate shops and adventually closing in the breezeway down the road. Just a thought though. We do plan on also building, probably a frame built 20’ by 30’ building on the lot for spraying finishes. This way we can keep the spray booth totally separate from the shop.
I know our capabilities with how we are currently set up, we can complete a full kitchen counting install in about 5 or 6 weeks or maybe quicker. I am confident with having a fully operational shop we will work even faster and more efficient. Plus we will end up doubling our sf in our home since we will get the shop out of here.
Any suggestions welcome.
