The impressive shop was built in 2017 and is any tradesman or toy collector’s dream! It provides a massive, open over-height storage area, plenty of shelving for tools and an enclosed mezzanine along the back overlooking the shop below. This would serve well as office space or more storage. The shop is heated by propane forced air and the floor is completed with Liberty Mats ground protection mats.
The shop is serviced with underground 100 amp power and there is one 220 outlet for a welder. For backup power there is a 20kw Stamford generator with a Kubota diesel engine, sufficient to run the entire property.
