« Part 7: There is Certainly No Drought Here! Part 8 of Finally, My Dream Shop series Part 9: ProjectCalc Plus »

Wow, I’m bushed. Everything is as cleaned up as it is going to be, Someone on the cement crew liked candy bars because there are at least 6 wrappers scattered about, but my back is too sore to pick them up tonight. The lumber will be delivered tomorrow. My contractor wanted to give the cement (especially the driveway) another day to cure, so the framing won’t start until Friday. I’m supposed to figure out where to put the porta-pottie and the dumpster…......heck, how about the neighbor’s yard?

I started out pressure washing the driveway and ended up doing some of the house, some of the garage, all the sidewalks and, oh yeah, most of the driveway. We’re supposed to be in a drought, but since I’m on well water, I figured the water would drain right back down so that my well pump can suck it up again…..right?

Thanks all, for the cute and interesting comments…I’ll check up on the suggestion about the paint.

O.K. anyone…......why do mosquitoes like to bite you behind the knees?

Because they can! LOL!! If I were you I would sacrifice the yard and put the dumpster there and the port-a-jon along the street. Concrete should cure 5-7 days before any heavy traffic and even then keep it off of the edges and any corners. Good luck!

mosquitoes tend to know where the most difficult body parts are to reach …. it’s an awkward swat to hit behind the knees so it is slower to respond – thus it is a mosquito’s heaven!

It looks like you are going to have a great shop. Mine is in my basement which means dust throughout the house. Some day I will build a shop seperate from the house. I can’t wait to see some of the projects you make in this new shop.
