When I last left off I had moved my shop to the garage and started doing projects. Then my wife Linda started looking for a job out of state. Soon she was interviewing in North and South Carolina and in Tennessee. Meanwhile, I started deciding what to take and what to sell. My small metal lathe had been occupying a space on the floor, gathering dust between the times I used it for small jobs so I decided to make a case for it and all the little accessories that go along with it. Something with drawers and a cover. The pictures showed the start I made but it never got finished.
Well, the job search paid off and we were moving to Knoxville. I took 10 days off to drive Linda from California to Knoxville and we started looking for houses. It took us 3 days not counting the hours spent reviewing properties on the internet. It came down to 2 houses, both with a good possibility for a shop. The first had a large partially finished basement with slider access to bring machinery through but had only the 2-prong plugs and needed to be completely rewired and the kitchen needed to be updated about 40 years. The second had a half basement, upgraded wiring and a large utility building. And, my wife could move right in after escrow closes. We decided on the second house, asked for a 10 day escrow, got a 28 day escrow and I flew back to California to pack. All projects were put on hold and everything in the garage got put in boxes as well as the rest of the house. Take my advice and sell it all and burn what doesn’t sell. It’s much easier that way.
