Currently looking for home/shop in Greenville or Augusta area as a
native Californian. Currently sharing 2 car garage with wood storage
outside as humidity on So Calif coast isn't a problem. Hoping to get
shop with enough space inside for storage and wondering if sharing a 3
car garage is viable. Would opening door for car cause too big a
problem with humidity? Expecting a dehumidifier will be required in
most cases but will opening the door overwhelm it? Californians aren't
typically faced with this schtuff. Observations welcomed!
No, not kicked out of Calif but 2 kids and grandkids are in SC and GA
and time marches on! I retired 11 years ago and wife joined the happy
throng 1.5 years ago. Looked for 2 weeks almost and have a couple of
"possibles" but nothing firm yet. Testing the waters so to speak.
After 22+ years of travel from Calif to Boston/Virginia/Wash DC year
round I'm too familiar with humidity but reality prevails.
There is a pretty active woodworker's guild in Greenville (no personal
experience)http://www.greenvillewoodworkers.com/index.htm There is a
hardwood dealer on Rt 101 just to the east of GSP airport. I live an hour
north in Fletcher, NC where it is about ten degrees cooler but has
occasional snow and ice storms and no woodworking stores closer than
Greenville (Woodcraft, also a Harbor Freight and a Tool Shed, Klingspors in
Hickory and Charlotte). But I have two retired brothers living in
Greenville. Suggest you try looking in the Taylors (semi-urban) and Greer
(semi-urban to rural) areas, and there are some very pretty rural areas just
to the north of them.

I live in Aiken, SC. (just across the water from Augusta, GA.) and
unless a garage in this area is unusually sealed, humidity will be a
problem. Do some real estate research and find a house with a
basement (rare but not unheard of) that has climate control or build a
separate shop building. If you own a home in California, you can
purchase an equivalent home and have enough money left over for a VERY
nice shop :-)
Thanks Bill, seems as though your observations are right on. After two
weeks looking we've decided to tread water and ponder a couple of
candidates. "The moving finger having written moves on and all of your
piety and wit ..." still prevails.
