February 27, 2008For those interested, I wanted to share what has been going on with me lately...because Im pretty excited about it.
I have been working without a shop for the past year, trying to find the perfect location since moving to Florida. It just wasnt working where I was, so I got lucky and found a place further down south, and signed the lease about a month ago.
This past weekend I ended up moving down here to Fort Myers into a house, as well as the new shop. Im finally taking what I love to the next step. I am very glad to finally be in a permanent location where I can work as needed again.
The shop is on a side street off a very large road in the middle of the city. Good location, nice sized 3000sq.ft shop/offices. Perfect for my needs, which is trying to stay small, where customers can have the amount of attention they deserve.
So, this past week I have been running around, on the phone non-stop trying to get this place up and running. Havent gotten much to show for it, but a lot of things are on the way, or in the works. I hope to be up and running in about 3 weeks. I just got the power turned on yesterday, and internet/phone lines are coming in an hour (i cant do anything while Im waiting on them, so i figured Id take some pictures for your viewing pleasure )
Anyways, enough of that, heres your tour:
Lets start with the pooper
Storage/lounge area (this is only one half, its very long, like two rooms...I am putting in couches, TV, and free wireless internet access)
Front bay door
Corner workbench/tool area
Still need to be wired for 220, waiting on two lifts, tire balancer, toolboxes, etc., etc....the list goes on. I will try and update this every once in awhile so we can see the difference of bare bones to fully equipped.
I also have a ton of various stickers, signs, flexfit hats, and t-shirts on order.
So hopefully now that I have internet again, I can be online more...but as you can see, Ive got my hands full, so I am sorry to anyone for any delays in email or getting back with you.
Let me know what you think.
