12/1/2021: OK folks, the new forum software is up and running

As has been mentioned, the look of the forum is different. As time permits, we may customize the look a bit.

I have created a new thread to discuss the new platform: viewtopic.php?t=4960

The new platform should be stable and fully functional. Please report any issues in the new thread.

Thank you all for hanging in there with me as we made the rather bumpy trip over to the new platform.

Jim

Eagles Nests - Shops

This forum was created so that members can document their projects that are not bus related. Most any subject is acceptable: car/truck, tractor, machine restoration, wood working, etc.

My vote would be for the property with the shop :D . You can always clean it out and sell the stuff for salvage.

In either case, I hope you end up with a good shop. I have never regretted building mine. Sadly the bus sits outside at the present time while I work on my other toys.

The 40 X 80 shop would be dangerous - you would be tempted to put two buses in it! It all depends on the cost, it is usually cheaper to buy something already built. A skid steer could push all the junk out, but leave the barrel stove for heat. ;)

I have a vintage Fisher XL wood stove built in our home town of Springfield, OR waiting for a 3000 sq ft building to heat.

The price dropped again and I made an offer that was accepted. This is a pearl in the rough and will need a bunch of work.

Which property did you buy? Hope it was the one with the big shop :lol:

Send more pictures after you move in. We love shop porno.

The offer was for (1) one acre plot with a 40'x80' steel sided building, and (1) three acre plot next door with an older house. Not sure when we'll close but a cash deal so not a big deal.
