power
wifi
bar stools
a couch
stereo

Sure hope for your sake that couch is a hide-a-bed. :)

I notice you didn't list a head. Shall we assume that means you use the sink?

I pee outside. An outhouse would probably be in order if I did actually have to live in my shop.:D

It's surprising what little you can survive with when forced upon you. I've been living out of a backpack for the last couple of years. Course sights like this kinda make up for it.

Sounds like you've got all you need right there, Paul. Like they say, "A man needs a wife like a fish needs a bicycle!"

(Couldn't resist making your life a little more miserable right at the moment. :)

What? You didn't know about the coffee pot?

Sleep well tonight Paul. Did you really think that the thread title would excuse your secret longings? :D

Somehow, this reminds me of the average guy's perfect fantasy woman--who performs an erotic act, then turns into a six-pack and a pizza.

Just so everyone here knows, Leo is a cat, and as such he sucks. Further indictment beyond being a cat, he's the cat that attacked my toe last week. Bastard. . .

In his defense, he did preface it with, "If I weren't absolutely one hundred percent happily married."

Anymore on the cat that chewed your new shoes. Or at least, tried and missed.

What he do? Spill glue on your favourite top?

hell, I could live in your shop, and call it an upgrade. Promise I won't build anything longer than a GIS and no cats.

More like a very well prepared "dog house" in case you really upset Katherine. ;):)

When Dave was alive, I often came home at 8 or 9 pm to find no lights on in the house, but plenty going on in the garage/shop :)

Seriously, he'd never walk in the house - not with fridge, bathroom (w/shower), washer/dryer, TV, radio, tools and a project in the garage/shop ;)

I suppose if you were not 100 percent happy... you'd have more gun threads.

Let's think about such a shop... you might consider parking a collectable motorbike as well, a nice chess board table and great track lighting illuminating your manly prized objects d' art; all which would make the space much more interesting. You might become a modern Hemingway once you had your freedoms, a featured speaker at a TED conference, or perhaps a world class lover. Ah forget it... you got a good thing already.

Been thinking about a motorcycle. I started a boat project a few days ago. Maybe after the bathroom renovation is done I'll move a British roadster up from Alabama to work on. . .

It wasn't Mark Twain who said "A man who says he's 100% happily married is a liar, a fool, or both?"

I'm pretty happy though. And JimD may well be right, each of us having a place to escape to is important.

Now that good weather is here it is not uncommon for me to be OUTSIDE doing stuff or working in my shop and forget to come in and fix dinner. All of a sudden it's 8 or later and then that OH SHYTE feeling sets in. Esp. since the better half doesn't get home til 7:30ish or later if she's doing boot camp.

Now about that cat... You better learn to love it!
