Dream Garage Re-build

Last year we started on one of the biggest projects over at the Forever Home. I named it the "The Dream Garage". Branko has worked all of his life really hard to save his money in hopes that one day he would have the garage of his dreams to ensure his classic cars were safely stored.

When that day came last year I was over joyed for him. You see Branko is a child of war. His family ran from war torn former Yugoslavia when he was 11 years old. I can not even imagine what those days were like but I truly believe those moments in his life and the upbringing by his parents shaped him into the hard working man he is known to be. 

The Dream Garage was in full swing starting in late August planned to be finished by early November. We worked hard, we paid a couple of guys to help and in a little over a months time the garage was up. We were only missing the plywood on the roof when this happened. You can read the story in that link and imagine how I felt, like my heart was ripped out of me. Not for my pain but his. It was something he had worked so damn hard to have and then it was destroyed in minutes.

The time is now that we re-build this beautiful structure!! It was mangled and I really believed it was going to be much more difficult. But with some help of amazing friends we started on the re-build over the weekend. The plan was to work Sat and Sun but because of the rain forecast we only worked on Saturday. 

Here is a small progress picture that I will share. Make sure you keep checking back in the coming weeks as more updates will be happening! 

Next weekend we continue on the garage all weekend then we have two weeks of working on the Forever Home. Long weekend will be dedicated to the Dream Garage again then 15 days to move in date! 

OH HEY - One last little look......(Branko worked all day Sunday on Forever Home Electrical)

The panel has been officially moved and 2 circuits have been set up, we will set up an appointment for safety on Monday and hopefully have power next Wed!!! 

As of tomorrow we are 30 days from move in date to the Forever Home!!!! Stay tuned as the blog will be busy in the next couple of weeks with many updates!
