Hello all, long time reader and fan. I've been working in the industry for 7 years now. Started out as a general machinist after trade school at a large company, left to work for a job shop for 5 years, and currently a lathe supervisor at a production shop. I am looking to start a part time side business I can do in the evenings. Job shopping and small production runs would be the model of the business. Lots of agriculture, auto, industrial work in the area. This is something I've been thinking about for 4 years but have been busy with life. I'm now married with a kiddo on the way in our own home. Ideally I'd like to build a pole barn, but the way our property is, it would be very small and expensive to build (lots of hills). Family friend has a garage and offered to rent it out. Has oil/coolant drainage, 3 phase power (would need wiring hookups), bathroom, and small office. As a family friend he offered to let me use it for storage as I gather equipment at $200 a month, once I'm up and running, $1500. I will have pictures below. The end goal is to start a full-time business that will support my family eventually. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for reading!
