i have a garden shed that is 7'x5' and i would like to get rid of this and build a workshop slightly larger, i reckon my wife would let me get away with 10'x8'.
question is?, do i need planning permission for what is basically a big shed, and what sort of equipment will i be able to fit in something of this size?
i've never done any sort of engineering like this before, i know what i'm doing with a spanner and a soldering iron but i have this urge to start making things, if you know what i mean?, i would like eventually to be able to make my own air rifle and possibly small engines for r/c cars, more for the sake of it than any other reason.
so i would like to have a lathe and a milling machine, what sort of size would i be able to get in a shop of this size?
are there any books people would recommend for complete newbie?
hope there aren't too many questions here :-)
