The house...? The house is fantastic. Original hard wood floors. New tile in the kitchen and bathrooms. Speaking of bathrooms, both have these big bowed-out tubs, perfect for a hot, relaxing bath. It's the first thing Itty Bit did when we got here.
Granite counter-tops and new cabinets. Stainless steel appliances. Big rooms, huge yard... Yes, everything is just about perfect.
But the house is not what gets me up in the morning. It's the ginormous detached garage. This is what makes everyday feel like Christmas morning. Every morning, I wake up and can't wait to get out to my shop. It's got power, so there is light and heat. I'm going to have to work on the heat situation, because these 2 little heaters are barely taking the edge off. But what can I expect in a space that could easily hold 4 cars!?!?!
I've already done my first job in the shop. Instead of taking these entry way doors to his shop, my brother had them delivered here. Yay! I got to work on them when it was convenient for me. I'm far more productive at 4 am than I am at 4 pm.
I've been collecting pallets. I need the free wood to build things for my shop. I spent yesterday morning tearing apart pallets. I only hit myself with the hammer twice. And I may suddenly be in need of a new 5-in-1, but I got it done. Then last night I cut, and drilled and screwed my heart out. The end result was a heavy duty work bench. Didn't cost me a penny. Just some sweat equity.
I walked around home depot for a bit yesterday. Love that place. I priced out the cost of a rack system so I can do kitchen cabinets in my shop. Then I went and drooled over the pretty power tools.
I love it. Every single minute of it. The possibilities are endless.
