        Man it's been a long time!!! This project will hopefully get wings again soon, next time I'm not stopping until it's done.

        So why has it stalled so long?? As you know I started building my own garage but what I didn't expect was for my dad to make the garage I was working out of almost unusable. It's bad, truck is blocked in with projects and junk everywhere, he's a pig in a garage lol and I can't function in an environment like that. This means I have to finish my 24X24 addition and get heat in my garage so I can move the truck in. I'll be back on it this summer.

            All good projects take more time that we think they should,

                Stopped in to look around, seams the site is gaining traction picking up members!

                Still waiting to get back on it, didn't realize there were no updates on the garage so here's a few. We decided to install a boiler to heat the garage and house so I've been spending some time while our funds recover building a bench for the garage, doors and drawers to come. The addition was put under roof before winter but that's it, hoping to side it and pour the floor at some point. Been very busy! 20180604_201210.jpg 20180520_205034.jpg 20171125_161006.jpg 20180305_173146.jpg

                        Good looking shop, love the outdoor boiler. The only problem is time spent cutting wood takes away from spending time on the project vehicles

                          I have a whole knuckle boom load dropped off in the field then spend an afternoon or 2 sawing it up then split it all in a weekend so I don't waste much time on it. I even bought a bigger saw this year to speed it up, 562 XP with a 24" bar... love it!
