This looks like it’s going to be a great shop for you. I partitioned off the 3rd stall of my garage and am in the process of moving into the shop. I look forward to seeing the inside of yours.

Just in time for this weeks staggeringly cold winterish weather, Frank! Hope that heat goes in soon, cause you’re gonna need it.

Your workshop now looks so nice and I am sure lot of good work will come from it. Your wife has taken lot of interest in developing the site. Please convey my admiration to her.

This is looking more and more like a shop. I am sure that you are eager to get in there and start doing some “fun” stuff.

Keep us posted.

The end is near… And so is the cold weather.

My wife has been helping quite a bit. She’s a big help when I need that quick bit of help lifting something. And she HATES seeing drywall dust on the floor & is always chasing me around the shop with a push broom. That’s a big help because it frees me up to do the plastering, taping, sanding & general installing of stuff. I wouldn’t be as far along as I am if it wasn’t for her help! Plus… It’s nice to have an understanding ear to talk to after dealing with the contractor or the county inspector.

I’ve been working on the inside too. so there’s another update coming very soon.
