    Garage has two 50k units and living quarters has a Vermont Casting gas log stove, all on LP. Have a generator hook up on main panel too. A small generator along with the LP can keep heat and all essentials going if need be.

    Great job! That's looks really nice throughout. Do you have a dedicated shop space in the garage for non-wheeled projects?

    Last bay is the shop area, 8ft welding table, work bench, steel rack, drill press, air compressor, mig welder, tig welder, plasma cutter, horizontal band saw, 4ft sheet metal brake, two mobile tool boxes, bike lift, etc, etc, etc..................

    I don’t plan on any more major projects, motorcycle builds, car builds, restorations, etc. .............. kinda tired of building stuff, it’s time to enjoy.

    @dlrides Do you mind sharing ballpark figures in terms of cost? Id love to do something like this in a few years. Need to know how much I gotta sell my kidneys for. California is too expensive and a nanny state, planning to move somewhere better and cheaper.

    Are you enjoying it as much as you hoped? Still feeling as spacious and comfortable as when you first moved in?
