Workshop
I've just finalised the deal for my new workshop, which I move into on 1st July

Some pictures. First, view of the shop to passing traffic (visible from a car)



Main shop area (try to ignore the boat!). Approx 50' x 25'



View back up the shop from the other end



Nice and light thanks to the windows



Office/desk area



Stock/storage area. Approx 20' x 13'



Possible spray room/other. Approx 20' x 16'



Roof trusses - good for running extraction



Don't know if you can make out this huge compressor outside - apparently it still works.



All roller doors are fully working, giving good access for stock in/out.

Cheers

Karl

Quite a bright and airy space, is it much of an upgrade from what you have now?

Looks like you have 3 phase already there.
Just a bit - over 15 times the size of my current shop.

Looks very good. How do you plan securing all those windows?

Not sure yet. Maybe internal bars. Or external rollers. But the site is quite secure - the premises are alarmed, and there are residential moorings and properties on the periphery of the car park.

Cheers

Looks good Karl :)

Security and insulation/heating for the winter would be worth thinking about ?

Cheers, Paul

Hi Paul

It has a chimney already installed for a woodburning stove, so installing a new stove is pretty high up on the list of priorities (before winter in any event). Subject to what the insurers have to say about the matter.

Cheers

Great space Karl. Didn't realise you were that close to Northwich - my folks are there. Look forward to seeing the 'workshop population' photos in due course ;)

Superb Karl...I bet you're made up!

Is that a steel roof?

Can you post some pictures around the moorings...I do so miss the water.

Well now you know where to send them if they need someone local :lol:

I've got a plan to upgrade most machinery over the next 12 months. Including the spray booth installation.

Cheers

Good workshop and I'm very envious.

My wife used to live about 3 miles from there.....Wincham Wharf/Lostock Graham and I used as a kid to do odd jobs for the boat repair company that is behind you or possibly the one that owned it before....it must be 48 yrs since I was last there. My last odd job was repairing a mahogany skylight that had split ( age 15 - Saturday job - 1966) ....wonder if the boat is still being used.

Maybe once you are set up I could pop in...I'm up in Cheshire about once a month although I live in Berkshire now....it would be great to have a look around again...but only if your not too busy.

regards
Al
