    Luckily I live out in the woods and don't have any neighbors.

    Which brings me to my question, do you have any trouble with neighbors complaining about you working in the yard?

        The shop is as big as the code will allow and I have 2 neighbors who're still very unhappy that I was able to do what I did (they think I ruined their view).

        But I made the shape and geometry to our living spaces such that there's very little noise that gets into the house, and I can blare the stereo out there and none of my neighbors can hear it. Having lots of insulation in the walls helps. My 2 stage compressor is no louder than the dishwasher.

          The guy on one side is strange, doesn't talk to us and also works in his yard all the time. The couple on our left has a dog that barks ALL THE TIME. So I don't see what they have to complain about.

            maybe its just the angle the picture was taken from, but it looks like the building in the backround is starting to lean forward a bit...

                    Main main project is the steel support structures for three concrete fire bowl table systems.



                    The second is a new desk for our new office (changing rooms to allow us to rent out a room). I designed something compact so we could use it with a flat panel instead of our old 24" CRT.

                      Anybody remember Sanford and Son?

                      Fred (oops tasselhawf), you're to be commended for getting anything accomplished in that working environment. How do you get anything level or square?

                          tasslehawf, I hate to tell you but those are broken. The bubble levels have fallen out. Either that or some one stole them. I heard you have a crime problem out there but thats getting a bit desperate.

                                Would be nice. But as someone pointed out - I am productive. Even without a shop or level ground or 220 power.
