I will have to be careful about noise transmission but there are two washrooms in the same area so I can blame the noise on them  ::)

I do hope that the Washroom isn't limited to be used from 8:00 to 19:00 as where I lived before, if this is to be your excuse  ;) and how about running your engines ?

Nice to be on the same level as outside when moving stuff in and out though - and I do hope you will end up with a good solution  :cheers:

Thank you all for the comments  :ThumbsUp:

The cellar workshop is directly above the supermarket so noise during opening hours (8-20 closed on Sunday) shouldn't be a problem. There is nowhere I can see where I can weld so that will have to be done in the welding bay at work.
The R&D area is more of a problem. As long as I use silencers I can probably run the petrol engines on our road facing balcony. Until I get better combustion in the diesel and much less smoke I will need to use the welding bay at work (10-15mins walk).

The new apartment set up is quite interesting. It's in a village of around 14 000 people with a direct 1/2 hourly (1/4 hourly at peak times) rail link to Zürich. There are 54 apartments built in blocks of 6 above a shopping complex with a supermarket, chemist, optician and cafe. Parking is underground with two separate underground garages for the residents. There is a green space / play area on top of the shops which is surrounded by the cellars/laundry rooms. The apartments are then above these. We can push a shopping trolly from the cashier to the lift and then directly into the kitchen  :). The station is about 5 mins walk and there is a bus stop outside the door. Very much suited for car free living  :ThumbsUp:
Best regards

Nearly there now, the shelves need a bit more sorting but most things are in place.

Who still uses a proper cordless drill and round head black japanned screws?  :old:

I can now start on the first real engine job, sort out the electrics for the twin  :)  :)
Best regards

As I no longer have the convenient wall outside the garage for engine testing I have bought a portable workbench so I can try out the underground garage, a bit dark, no power sockets but very good extraction or the balcony, may upset the neighbours without good silencing.

I hope it will be heavy enough to reduce the vibration  ::) There was a cheaper plastic version but I didn't think that it would cope.
Best regards

Well you adjust to the circumstances and prevail (hopefully not a too loud engine)  :ThumbsUp:

I ended up buying a house 12 years ago, so I could do (almost) what I want to do  :D
