Lets see, where do I start?
A lot has changed since I was last on here. I cannot remember the last time I was on here, and I have not looked.
Since I last was on, we sold our home, moved to another one and in some ways I think it will be better for my wood working addiction.
We sold our home in 5 days and closed on it at the end of November. We moved into my wife’s childhood home, we are doing a Rent to Own, and will eventually buy the place.
We now have a 2552 sq ft house on 2 acres of land. It has 3 bedrooms, formal living room, family room,kitchen, game room (converted garage) a master suite that has an office. The house sets on the front acre and we mow that. Behind is another acre and so far we are letting the grass grow for a back up to dad’s 15 acres, so that he can bring his horses over from time to time. We also allow the neighbors to run their horses over to eat the grass.
Out in the pasture, is a barn, it is not really large, but can be built larger if I want. I do plan to build a metal building on the existing slab (removing what is there for barn) and making that into a workshop eventually.
Currently, I have a storage room in the carport that I have a space for my tools. I will use it until I can build the workshop.
I want to take the carport, and convert that into a full 4 car garage. I will have to add a bay and convert the storage room into one bay and part of another.
Of course, these are some short term and some long term plans. The best part is that we are out of the city and can do just about anything we want to do out there. Dreaming of the possibilities is a great thing.
We are working on the garden, and building flower beds and trying to clean up the place. It set empty for a few months before we moved in and it also set empty for about a year while my wife’s parents were on a mission.
We have fruit trees and a kennel, which I will be removing and squaring off the yard. There are a lot of projects to work on.
