This is what we’ve been up to lately. A 12’ x 24’ addition and bar.The Homeowners tell us what they want , I draw it up and Mike builds it with the assitance of the crew (ME) and I do all the painting, staining and poly. We ( MichaelA and myself) built this on an existing slab off the side of the garage. It did pose a bit of a challenge to Mike because the slab had a slope in 2 directions But is nothing for a stepper. It was hard to get good pics. The owners were decorating before I finished painting the outside! The view is awesome being lakefront. We also made the flower box under the window. This is what we do when we’re not carving and doing intarsia, now I can buy more wood! Mike also aquired some awesome mesquite stumps from the owner for carving.

You both do wonderful work and it shows! I first assumed that it was an addition for your workshop so you could have inspirations when working! (would be nice!)

I wish it was our shop! Of course we wouldn’t get much work done LOL. PS. Please remember power tools and alcohol do not mix!

Wouldn’t want to walk it’s about 3 miles from home. Could take the boat on a calm day.

I think you should name it “Mcguilicutty’s” just because it’s an Irish name that rolls off the tounge. :) Great job!
