I've just been VERY busy building my new barndo (barn/condominium, as they are referred to) and finally moving in to my new shop! Land prices went nuts here earlier this year, so I sold my 4 acre place with scratch-built hangar/shop/garage and was able to buy 10 acres and build a brand new barndo that is much more spacious with a living area as well! The drawback is, that it is a 45 minute drive now, instead of 15 minutes.

This is it, from my drone view (pieced together from several video stills)

Since this photo, I added a large shed roof between the building and my storage container

I only recently was able to clear away all the construction debris and finally got the first bike out of storage and into the shop for "un-storage" ('83 Honda VF750F)

Soon I will be "waking up" my Triumph Bonneville race bike, and adding lights to it for street use, then I will get the Triton up and running again. Both will get their own threads in the projects section.

The BSA will also get some attention...

Wow GP nice to see your new place and seeing some of the old bikes coming out of storage like that. I will be looking forward to your new threads on these restoration as they always a treat to follow,

Looks a bit like Colin Edwards' Boot Camp spot in Texas (from that drone pic). :)
