I just know …………………..

You all have been holding your breath just waiting to see some photo updates of our (almost!!!!!) complete garage saga. Life in Rural America, USA, is full of these exciting moments just waiting to be shared. OK, ok……on with it………….begun last April (here), progressed to December (here and here) when it went into a “holding pattern” over the winter/while we scurried off to Texas, and, now, we have arrived here……… and…..IMG_6344    The final set of shutters……IMG_6341  See that handy gizmo/machine??? That has allowed DH to safely side the entire structure including all the way to the peaks without a very tall ladder and some tricky gymnastics or treks to the ER!!!!

So….let me bore you with my fave spot (next to my Ms Sweetie and Ms Juki!!!!)………..IMG_6336IMG_6337 IMG_6338

And my view????….this…………….IMG_6345  We’ve come a long way, baby!!!!!!! Til next time………and just maybe more quilting related….but……….hmmmmmm

    Very nice job Tom! Glad to see the finished back wall and no injuries!

    This looks beautiful. I love your porch too. Happy you, and happy kitty

    Your home looks wonderful. I miss the veranda that I had in Australia. They are few and far between here in the UK. Your garage is large enough to rent out as a sewing room. May I apply. 😉 I could live with that view. Good news all the siding was completed without mishap. 🙂

      Yup! Very good news! The structure is huge….with a “required” second floor storage so the first floor will house multiple motorcycles, a truck and a workshop area/counters/tables. That’s the plan anyway. BTW …. it would make a wonderful “people structure”!!!!!! It WILL be insulated and finished on the inside at a later time!

    Love it! IT is beautiful and I love your porch as well, of course. That would be my favoirite place as well. Especially with a kitty on the porch who looks like he/she is telling you off !

    Your DH has done a wonderful job. Your home & property look relaxing & divine

  6. I won’t show Randy photos of your new garage. He will be seriously jealous. Great work, Tom.

    I want your porch and porch swing. One thing is missing, though. And it would be found in your basement, then poured and then in your hand.

      You would NOT believe the aroma coming from our “lower level” at the moment! Suffice it to say that being “of age” would be a requirement!!!! hehehehehe…………………………….

  7. How gorgeous! It looks blissful. Well done to you all.

  8. kathyreeves says:

    Yeah for the garage, but that summer storm coming in has some amazing color to it!

  9. I love your porch! It as been cool and wet here in Golden, CO… sitting out on the patio is OK, but a porch like yours is awesome! Glad you got the garage nearly done, and what a smart idea to get the contraption to raise and lower DH so he doesn’t break anything!

    What an accomplishment, and what a porch swing and view. I remember porch swing days.Loved to sit and swing.

    • treadlemusic says:

      Growing up, I was on my little swing set for hours, too! The garage construction amazes me cuz neither DH nor son are builders but YouTube came to the rescue many many times!!!!
