New to the site. My name is Shawn and my wife, daughter and and I moved to New Bern in June of '16 from AZ. I've been woodworking for roughly 35 years now. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find a piece of property with shop space, so my machines are sitting dormant.:( I was wondering if there are any co-ops in the New Bern area or space to share? in the mean time I'm looking for space to rent. Anyway, I figured I'd say hi.

When we moved to NC I had a metal building put ont the lot. When it's too hot or too cold I have my SCROLLSAW etc. set up in a spare bedroom.

Been thinking of metal building. I thought I'd add on to tiny shed, but I have to investigate permiting.

Welcome to the site Shawn. I'm also in the New Bern area. Are you in city limits or out in the county? Don't know what differences there are in permits but know that building downtown is very difficult between the Preservation Association and city permit inspectors. Still it can be done and I know a few people who have done it. I live in the Brice's Creek area where apparently anything goes and many people have their own shops on the property. Suppose I could as well if I wanted to invest in that sort of thing. I do all my WWing in the garage. As for rental space I don't know a lot of that either but there must be some options around town.

Glad you're here Shawn. I'm way too far away to offer any help, but I sure do hope you find a way to have your shop. Happy sawdusting!

Thanks for the responses. I'm in the Neuse/Simmons area. My neighbor has a shop I may be able to use, but I have to find something. I have projects rolling in.

Welcome Shawn. We have a lunch get together roughly each month depending upon schedules. Richo has accepted the onerous responsibility of lining everyone up for the event. Kinda like herding cats!
Contact him with your availability and I hope to meet you at the next get together.
