Progress on the garage is creeping along very slowly. It’s tough to find time to work on this. Weekdays are useless. I get home from work around 5:45. The official sunset time for Minneapolis today was 6:19 PM. Just enough time to get out all the tools and put them away again.
Weekends are my only chance to work on it, but of course I’m also juggling other weekend activities.
And oh yea, turns out I also have a daughter and I would like her to know me as more than “that guy who is always making noise in the backyard.
But we’ll get there eventually. The siding is on one side, and we’re almost done with the siding on the back, too.
And check out these great knee braces. This is my favorite part of the garage so far. I think they look pretty sharp! What do you think?
And in case you didn’t notice, we have doors.
There’s still a lot to finish up here, and we’ve set a goal to be finished by Thanksgiving. Here’s a rundown of what’s next:
- hang soffits – 1 wall
- finish trim – 1 wall
- finish siding – 3 walls
- caulk siding – all
- paint trim – all
- finish drywall firewall on inside – 1 wall
- build shelves
What do you think? Can we finish all this by Thanksgiving if we only have a few hours each weekend to work?
