That is quite the list. All that would take me about three to four years to build. You all have a GREAT workspace, very nice. Do you paint inside or outside? I paint outside. The wind constantly shifts which makes painting a challenge.
I, too, paint outside, or in a detached garage, which lags behind in warming up on a cold morning. I don't paint unless it's over 40° out. Got a clear coat on my Doorknob today, so she's ready to go. It will be at the follies.
I work at a large office building in Boston. We have access to the loading dock area which is quite large. I had thoughts of painting rockets there until someone at my company told me he was spoken to about painting some props for a work related promotion. I have often thought about asking a body shop manager if I could rent space in a paint booth.
I use the "spray and dash" method of painting in the winter.
First, I'll warm my can of paint up by putting it in a container of warm water for ten to fifteen minutes (usually until the can feels warm) and give the can a good shake. Then, making sure the rocket is at at least room temp, I'll quickly go out side, give the rocket a quick coat of the warmed paint and then dash back inside to let it dry.
The paint does smell up the house for a little while, so I usually wait for a time when my wife isn't home.
No winter projects for me yet, although I've done some repairs to some of the birds on the DL.
