Looking for a new property with a shop in MIssouri.

In this part of my moving vlog series I’ll give you an update on our house sale here in Denver as well as show you some of the properties we’re looking at in Missouri. I also include some tips and tricks for things to look out for if you’re searching for your own woodworker-friendly property.

When you’re looking for properties that already have potential separate shop spaces, the terms I found helpful were: Outbuilding, detached garage, second garage, shop, barn and horse property.

Once you find a property, be sure to contact the local zoning department and ask them what you can and can’t do on the property. Here are some questions to consider: How many buildings can be on the property? Do the buildings need to be attached to the home? Can I run a business on this property? Can I hire employees?

As you’ll see in the video, we found a property we liked and put in an offer. You’ll have to watch the video to find out what happened.
