Umm…what was I saying? A couple weeks ago? Oh yes, I was talking about framing the garage.
And then John and I skipped the country, and between prepping for it and then actually doing it, I forgot to finish talking about the 2x4s that made our garage vision an actual structure. Whoops.
And to make matters worse… this all occurred during a time when green leaves were still on the trees.
Framing always makes me smile.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. I think framing is fantastic because it’s the realization of what was previously just a concept, a plan.
And the garage was no different. I’m a highly visual person, so this culmination of many pounds of wood was all I needed to fully grasp what exactly we were doing to the backyard.
Good thing I liked it, eh?
Once the structure was up, you know what the immediate next step was, right?
Cue the kid with a truck that has been waiting for 13 years to park his own truck in his own garage.
A monumental moment, I tell ya!
It’s like us kids finally grew up and became adults.
And it’s like we now have a little house that sits behind our real house.
And uh, the occupants are a couple of Dodges, a lot of tools, and an unnecessary amount of camping stuff. Cozy ,eh?
Next steps: roofing and siding. Not necessarily in that order. Or maybe in a back-and-forth kind of order. If that even makes sense.
And if it doesn’t make sense…then I guess just check back soon. I don’t think we’ll be skipping the country within the next week, so perhaps finishing this long-winded garage progress ‘series’ will start to draw to an end.
(I think this is where I’m supposed to say: “don’t hold your breath”)
