The Hangar

The HangarHow many times have you said to yourself, “I wish I had a shop?” Sometimes your garage, imprinted concrete driveway or you can also get for an affordable price, check the imprinted concrete driveways prices using the link. For the longest time we’ve had to use our garage for our many DIY and craft projects, and not that it doesn’t look awesome, but that thick layer of dust on the car isn’t exactly trendy! Although it is pretty cool to the kids to watch it slowly blow away as you pull away from the house.

About two years ago we graduated from the garage and purchased a property here in Arizona that has something we call, “The Hangar!” It stands about thirty yards from the back corner of our home and was actually used by Amy’s Grandpa to build and store airplanes in. Now, we use it to store our go-cart, lawnmower, woodworking tools and everything else we don’t want to keep in the house or in our garage.

I can’t tell you how awesome it is to have a shop. And I’m gonna go out on a limb here and be a little bold by saying that, “You’re not a complete manly man unless you have a shop!”

As of today, the Hangar is old. Some of the walls are starting to bow and will have to be replaced. And that’s just expected with a stick (wood) framed structure…especially since it wasn’t completely weather proofed. A little leak can take its toll over time, and it has in this case.

As a temporary fix, I plan on replacing the corroded walls and will update you on the project as we go, step by step.

In the near future, when we decided to push it over and rebuilt, we are probably going to go with a metal building. Not only will a metal building be cheaper, but in my opinion, there’s less risk involved. Besides being a lightning magnet, there’s very little fire danger. As long as we choose the best metal building insulation provider to install the right insulation, we’re good!

As of now, I’m afraid a spark from one of my saws might set the whole thing ablaze.

So stay tuned for updated on our progress. And as usual, it would be great to hear from you. What have you been working out of for your DIY projects and crafts? I know our kitchen table has taken a beating!
