So, I have basically just spent the entire fall season using my shop as a storage place for my living room while my wife and I renovated. We went to the bare walls, rewired, insulated, and everything else. And finally I am done! (Actually, I still have some crown molding to put up, but I feel done.)
Now, I have finally gotten back into the shop to do a few minor projects including a Christmas gift (more to come on that later). I have to say, it is nice to be back down there. Although, I do enjoy home building/renovating, I have coming home and having a huge hole where my living room used to be reminding me that I have work to do.
Currently, other than working on these small projects, I’m cleaning out the basement shop and planning on a big project of reorganization in this shared space. I have a bit of a unique problem to solve down there seeing as I have a concrete ledge to work around on all four walls (three of which protrude about three feet square). In addition, a bit of sealing and waterproofing of any improvements will be happening along with this.
For now, I’m just glad to have my little space. “My room” which was one of the three bedrooms is now a TV room (smallish) since we decided not to put a TV in the living room after it was done. So, the shop is my respite in the house. Here’s to my small piece.
