garage completed

I've been working away on the garage, mostly on weekends, and it's now basically done. Outside is fully sided, lights and outlets are installed, and my dad came up do help wire the place inside, which went smoothly.

Then he actually came up again for a weekend because the lake was freezing early so he needed a place to stay, so I had help building the workbench, which turned out really nice. It spans the full 24 feet of the garage. There is abundant storage in the garage as well, big shelves up high on each side, and one full wall of shelves, plus another couple metal shelf units. There's a lot of space under the workbench too. All this, and both cars still fit fine, with room to work at the workbench.

With all the shelves done, this weekend we spent moving boxes of camping gear, garden stuff, sports gear, luggage, and all the crap we seem to have out into the garage. This included the tools that were still in our living room, so now our house is more like a house!

In the process of organizing stuff, we found the little bed Roland used to sleep in. It was on the floor, and he climbed right in. He actually managed to fit, it seems like he can make his body just slightly larger than his head.

Great job on the garage. Kudos to Craig as well. Roland is just to cute and funny for his own good. It just means he is going to get his own way all the time. Thanks for the laugh on an early cold Monday morning. Love Mom and Dad

I also laughed!! Roland is too cute in that very tiny bed! I just got back from visiting your Dad in Kalamazoo. Lucy and I fixed a fantastic dinner for him, some of the recipes which we will try on you guys when you're down for Thanksgiving. He gave them a thumbs up. Love to you from Mom in Wisconsin.

Andrew, do you remember that dog-book we had growing up with the one picture of a miniature dog in a tea-cup that used to always make us laugh? This picture SO reminded me of that.

I DO remember that book. Thanks for reminding me :)
