Garage/Studio Update

Just a quick post but I wanted to update everyone on the project status. Below is where we are on our garage/studio. If not for my son-in-law (Matt) and his friend (Joe) we would be where we are now. Those two strong young men lifted and stood our posts (the biggest was a 24 ft 6 x 6) up in the holes while we braced everything a couple of weekends ago. They came back yesterday to help nail some of the girts in place. As you can see, we are not done with the girts yet but at least we are building now. With luck, maybe we'll be pouring concrete next weekend or the one after. Pretty much all my daylight hours after work in spent working on this project. Since my husband is home all of the time, he is working outside when he is feeling up to it. We would love to have it enclosed by Labor Day. Wish us luck!


  1. Wow, it's coming along!

  2. You've come a long way!!! It's going to be so nice. Just keep imagining what you will have when it's all done. It would be neat if you could organize a "barn raising" like they used to do in the old days. Lots of hard work and then good food and cold drinks at the end of the day.
