I've been building a business plan for a do-it-yourself garage. You military guys will know this idea as the "Auto Hobby Shop". I live and work in the Denver area where the nearest Auto Hobby Shop is an hour or more away in Colorado Springs.
The basic idea is to make the garage everyone wishes they had at home available for rent by the hour. It should have everything from vehicle lifts, a complete collection of tools, welding equipment, and maybe even some fabrication equipment.
So who would be willing to pay $15 to $20 per hour to use a fully equipped garage to work on their projects? Do you think there would be enough market to keep the bays full on a shop like this?
