    Workshop Opportunity in Norfolk...

    Due to a lack of workshop space at home, I'm looking into renting a workshop for somewhere to store car parts, work on the car, and generally get away from the missus at times...

    I've found somewhere ideal, it's available, and it's not too badly priced!

    However... I can't see the point in renting the whole thing by myself, because it is unlikely I'll need the whole thing. So, I was thinking... would anyone be interested in coming in on it with me?!

    The rent is at £275 a month, so by my rough calculations splitting it 50-50 would work out £137.50 each per month, or if you prefer, less than £35 a week.

    For the rent, we'd be getting a workshop with two lockable roller security doors, an office area, and (the clincher for me!) an inspection pit. The place is set within a locked yard as well, for added security. I am led to beleive that the two parking spaces in front of the workshop are also included.

    I haven't yet been and looked at the place, but I hope to do so within a week. in the mean time, here's some pics...






    I reckon, with a lick of paint and a couple of hours work, fitting some racking/shelves/bench (and of course a stereo/microwave/kettle ) it'd be a nice little setup for working on the cars

    so is anyone interested in coming in on it? potentially there's nothing to say we couldn't go 3 or 4 ways on it either providing we all communicate properly about using it

    I would be quite interested in it, I mean i am useless with cars myself and I keep on buying bits and bobs for me some big some small and can never find a place to fit them as home is not best place and never find anyone to help with it as all my mates are useless pc nerds. So for me having a place and a few people with a brain on cars would be great, I wouldnt mind going 3-4 split but 2 is abit to much moey for me considering how often I could use it and get there although I could make it every weekend

    well if this one is too much, or even if it gets snapped up and doesn't materialise, we can always keep looking if you're seriously interested - there are plenty of units about we can keep looking until we get 3-4 people

    I think its a great idea pete, esp as its about 5mins from my house

    But going two ways its a hell of alot to pay for how often id use it i think. And even 3-4 ways its alot but would be interested if we had a group of 5-6 but then this maybe unfeasible due to it being to busy and two much work to organize who's using it when etc.

    i reckon we could manage it 5 ways easy enough, would just mean more shelves required

    a giant wall planner on the wall and then we mark days on it a couple of weeks in advance if poss would do it - but then again with the power of the text message it wouldn't be hard to find out who was down there if you needed to go do something. more people = more chance of someone being there to help out

    what do people think to letting this particular workshop pass us by, but get a group together and find a unit once we've got people in place? seems the most sensible idea to me...
