I was watching this forum for a while now and wanted to share my build so made a topic I totally missed this section 🤦‍♂️. So I thought it would be the correct thing to do now.

I live in the south of the Netherlands and i'm 27 years old, 1,5 years ago I got an oppertunity to buy a house across the street and with current house prices going up I jumped on it and I was able to buy the place. It was trashed and overgrown. I removed all the green and started to think about how my new shop should be like. After some (alot) of Google Sketchup hours I got a design that I liked and started counting the peso's. Since i'm alone and paying everything the build wouldn't be finished in a hurry. Also I really like to over complicate things and build them my self, these things often do take alot of thinking measering and most of the time some money :).
If you like to see what i'm building a link is in my signature.
Most of my work would be in metal because I have most of the metal working tools already.

I started school in construction as a carpenter, when I desided to be a furniture woodworker I did that for 2 years at school but really feld it wasn't for me. Made the switch to mechanics, found a place that would take me on and let me go to school for it. Was a forklift mechanic for 4,5 years and after that I stayed within the company but switched to an other section as agriculture mechanic and had 4 more years of school. Now I nearly work 10 years at that place and absolutly love my work I mostly work on Fendt tractors, this would be work in a deticated workshop or onsite with a service van. We do allot of irragation machines so in the summer time when its hot and dry we run 150% to help the farmers with their irrigation equipment to water down their crops.
Currently my hobby project USA pickup is at a standstil because i'm building a new home for it, but that will be the first thing in when the shop is done.

Front of the garage, just finished brick work.

I'm constantly updating my build topic until i'm coughtup to were i'm now with the shop.
