I about too take out a loan to build on to the shop (dads) it is 24"x40" I plan on added on a spray both 12"x22" garge 20"x 24" I've got 12 years exp. in painting , and I love too work on cars.
the loan will not be a problem.
As mentioned, look out for neighbors. Also some places have some weird regulations about "paint booths". You'd hate to get it all together then have local law come shut you down.
A friend of mine teaches bodywork at a local prison. He built a small "paint booth" sort of thing at his house for his personal projects. Some guy convinced him ($) to take on a hot rod paint project in his spare time . This guy had friends. Recently he actually had to hire a kid to work at his shop doing the prep work while he goes to his day job (good benefits). Hey, it could happen to you!
my both is going to be in the county. (alabama) as far as people around me they know to come talk (nicely to me) before calling the law and makeing me very mad. I maybe in a wheel chair right now but a phone call too family in newyork and they will take care of the problem! LOL
