How about 608,000 cubic feet? That's 19,000 on the floor and 32 foot celings. Unfortunately, I've moved since then.

Oh, can't wait to move to Texas, and possibly get a place with a garage.
Its insanely hot in Texas..you know that right? I live in Austin, but at the moment Im in Afghanistan. The weather here this year was nicer than Central Texas. My wife says they had over 40 consecutive days over 100 degrees..

I need to clean out and reorganize my 'man...hut'? Castle would be a bit if a stretch. Maybe I'll post up some pics and everyone can add their 2 cents as to what should stay and what should go. Might actually get done that way.

I once had a lab cabinet with about 20 drawers, many of which had motorcycle parts in them. My son (about 17 at the time) was smoking a cigar in the shop and dropped it in the trash can....fast forward.....a few months later while he was at school at A&M as a fish (freshman in the Corps of Cadets), we would send him goodie packages with cookies, a piece of charcoal, a burned Triumph speedometer, a melted diode, etc. The upper class men actually were sympathetic with this harrassment. The remaining half of the cabinet has an engraved plaque that says "Trace's Fire of '96" on the blackened edge where we cut off the burned half.


7th Troop Leading step - the harrassment is continuous!

That's good stuff.

Heave away! Aint sceerd! ..Actually, the mound where that shed is was swamp that turned into a dumping spot for all the tree stumps and dirt that where exscuvated from the big garage site. So heaving ,rotting, settleing. jacking, filling in under the walls here and there from time to time are probably in the cards. It was useless land before so at least now it aint. Keep in mind this is just a storage shed. Just 2x6 walls, trusses and metal siding and roofing. No insulation or inside wall covering. Should be light enough to bottle jack up and shove some crushed stone under once in a while. It's all done now. I'll post some pics.
