My dads workshop burned to the ground

My father has since he was 20 years old been in to cars. He loves to restore them, to upgrade and do just about anything with cars.

Around his 30th birthday he and some friends got together and bought this workshop so that they could practice their hobby with ease. 

8 years ago the loan was payed of. My dad loved in there, he would spend almost every waking hour in there, mending cars and sometimes bikes as well. 

But last month we got a call that it was engulfed in flames, cars, equipment and
everything inside was burnt to a crisp. 

This wouldn't be an issue in normal cases, the insurance company would just 
cover it all- including the equipment. 

BUT after an investigation it turned out someone had welded and not used 
proper safety precautions, so the claim was voided.  This has hit my dad hard. 
he spent almost all wake hours at that place and now its gone. 

This fundraiser is to buy him a new place to make his workshop, it will be smaller but at least he will have someplace to go to enjoy his hobby. 

I hope you can help. 

Estimated costs of buying a new place (this time just a part of a building with 
many garages in it instead of a whole building is 10000 USD)

I personally am taking from my savings to help him but there is some missing, that's where i hope you will all help to make this bighearted man happy again.
