Well the long road of construction is more or less over. The new garage is built the door goes up and down and the cars fit inside. Now all I have to do is get all the wifes “stuff” out of “MY SHOP”.

We built a nice 25’x25’ garage. Leaving me with a very comfy 22×22 shop. The layout will not be hammered out till all the “stuff” is out, leaving only the important stuff.

I have gone out and bought one new addition for the shop. It’s one of those zero gravity recliners from Cabela’s. Should be a great fit for those long winter days making saw dust. Every shop needs a command post a think station a place to recharge, right. Hey I got it in tan so it would show saw dust. Good thinkin right….

Anyway, I have attached some picutes of before and after.

Oh yeh, we also added a front porch. Cedar stained to match the cherry front door.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year to everyone. please be safe and love all those around you like there is no tomorrow.

WOW…

That had to cost a pretty penny, but I bet it seriously improved the value of your home…

IT HELPS A LOT TO HAVE A BROTHER-IN LAW THAT IS A BUILDER AND ONE THAT IS AN ELECTRICIAN. THEN GREAT FRIENDS THAT DO PAINTING AND DRYWALL. ALL THIS REALLY KEPT THE COST WAY DOWN.
WE CAME IN ON BUDGET, NO REALLY WE DID. THE WIFE AND I HAVE BEEN PLANNING AND SAVING FOR ABOUT THREE YEARS FOR THIS. THE TIME JUST WORKED OUT RIGHT.

Wow – I’d never thought using one of those zero gravity chairs in the shop. It’s now on my wish list.

BTW – your addition really updated your home.

I LOVE the timber frame for the entry. That’s a cool touch that really defines the house. I can’t wait to see the inside!.
