So my last few months have been to accomplish actually building a shop. Lived in the house for four years. Gutted the whole place over that time period and remodeled most of the rooms. Recently added a new 18 X 16 foot TV room in the back overlooking yard. Nicknamed that one “The Kennel”.
So now that Wifey is somewhat happy ( of course I still have a pantry , bar, and some other todos to do ) I convinced her that having a shop that is actually functional would also help in her long term happiness. ;-) i.e. projects would get done faster and there would be more organization in the garage area. In the last four years it has been the staging place for every project.
I attached pictures of the garage during staging and one run to the dump for garage demo.
So the first thing was to create some additional storage so I proceeded to build drawers in an area under the stairs that go down to the basement. They are now all in and and its a great addition. I will either build drawer fronts or doors in front of them. Waiting to see how I use them before deciding on which approach. I must give accolades to a great youtube video showing how to frame and trim out this type of built in.
This is my first project post. I once posted a review of Festool’s Track Saw and got mauled because I happen to criticize someone else’s product…. So please I have just gotten over that trauma!
