I was here a couple years. The shop was about 300 square feet and really worked nicely. I started to build up a pretty good collection of tools. I purchased an Enco Drill/Mill for light machining and mitering as well as a bunch of other tools that allowed me to be a lot more accurate and efficient. I still had a full time job aside from Framebuilding but the business was growing and between my two jobs I was working 12 hour a day seven days a week.
When I moved here I had sold my condo and hoped to find a little house with a shop someday. In 1996 I found the perfect little house. I bought it and moved myself and my shop to Lamme St.
