Property needs to be commercial not residential. Best defining characteristic is whether business rates are due. You don't have to operate a business though.

Yes, you need to pay full market market rent to your pension, but heh, that has it's advantages.

Pension can borrow 50% of its liquid assets if required.

All growth in the value of the property is not liable to CGT on disposal and all income from the tenant (you) in to the pension is not subject to income tax.

Okay, before this topic goes any further off piste, my original question was posed because I recently had to make some modifications to my trailer and the only options were to either drop the RIB in the water while I did so, or jack the RIB up off of the rollers while I replaced/moved them. Got me thinking it would have been much easier if I'd just been able to hoist the RIB up a foot or so.

I shall (hopefully soon) have the opportunity to build a (larger) new garage of approx 5.8m x 5.2m (internal dimensions) and I'm toying with incorporating a couple of heavy steel beams on which to mount lifting points (for block & tackle hoists), and just wondered whether there were any other suggestions - other than beer fridges and pole dancers - as to what might be useful to incorporate.

My own man cave is for storage pure tools and jigs

BUT,

Such a lucky Git where I work , and being in my position, I have 22000 sq feet of unit to use at leisure and a further x12000 sq feet secure yard space,,
So long as it's not in the way of current work load no body pays any attention to various vessels that appear here there and every where , this was up here for weeks before any one noticed lol

Occasionally when to busy at work. I have to struggle at home. Spoiled Git!!

If You have any chance, try to make it little longer, you wont regret it, mine is about that size and wish it would be little larger....

Heating is nice to have, especially when doing repair job in the winter.

Fixed Dust extracting system with the outlet out in open air would be brilliant to have, i dont..

Good lighting, plenty of lamps, easy to install during building process.

Good luck with the build

Yes, had hoped to add an extra metre to the length but planners not keen

Plenty of lighting and power outlets already on the list, though dust extraction is not something I envisage needing and I suspect the winter temperatures in Finland are a little more extreme than we routinely experience here!

One big plus will be a single (double-width) up and over door. Current single width door gives barely 25mm clearance to play with when tubes are inflated so a pain in the ar$e pushing/pulling it in and out.
