    Having done 2 re-models and 1 ongoing project working from scratch, I can say that if at all possible do not buy within city limits because they will drive you nuts with codes and permits and restrictions.

    Although interior remodel you can pretty much do whatever you want, out of sight.

    But you should definitely ask around locally about codes and such, there could even be county or state restrictions to upset your plans.

    If I had to do it over again, I would go with the metal barn theme.

    Actually my girl friend isn't opposed to this idea at all, her words were "as long as the house part looks like a house inside and not a bed in a shop" lol

    Perhaps 2 deadbolts on the door between the shop. One to lock no matter what side your on? lol
