A day in the life of building a garage

Last week as we were working outside in the burning sun I felt the need to go home and grab my nice camera and snap some photos of the tools.

UMMMMMMMMMM have a I gone crazy??????????? I'm taking picture of tools! I need to get to a mall stat and do some shopping! Retail therapy because I am beginning to enjoy this whole garage thing too much! 

So back to my story....I decided it would be fun to capture snippets of the tools in the sand, have them printed and framed for the garage. Maybe this post should be called "memory of the damn sand that is creating a disaster at the old house."

Country Stereo Stand - Milwaukee Radio

Neighbours tractor that is saving our backs

Hopefully we don't lose those keys in the sand. 

Go ahead ask who helped install forms. 

Home Depot Pencils are orange for a good reason.

Milkwaukee Drill - This kid has been put the test. 

A rusty blue hammer that has taken some beatings.

Milkwaukee Saw - Watch your fingers. 

I swear I help. 

A beach volleyball court may be a part of our future. 

Cheesy or not the garage is really taking place now and seeing this project come together is becoming more and more exciting.

Stay tuned...more to come next week!! 

Friday Dreaming....The Garage

This post is mainly for my husband....

He has worked so hard to one day be able to build a garage that exceeded his dreams... you know those Jay Leno kind of dreams. When he was younger and would see other dream garages he would always say to the person "Wow, this is amazing I hope one day that I could have something like this"...and now his time has come.

Some people question is ability and strength. Some people don't like his honesty or his way of words.

But people who know him best know he would drop everything if you needed his help...

he would do anything for me.

AND now it his time to enjoy all of his accomplishments and all of his kindness, it is his time to create the DREAM garage.

Here is a snap shot of the footings we have been working away at...Yes all 4800 sq.ft of happiness going on right there.

 Sand, sand and more sand...is it weird that our soil is sand...like beach sand...maybe we will build a beach one day from all the extra sand.

And now for some Dreamy Ideas that we hope to happen in here...

A hoist...or maybe 2.

And last but not least...a lounge area because what would a man cave/dream garage be without it...
