We actually got shut down on this project for 2 weeks after my home owners association found out. They wanted to see plans including paint swatches and shingle samples and measurements to my property lines to show I was not on the utility easement at the back of my property. They eventually gave me permission and the storage shed is done!

Pink? Is that an insect treatment, or should I say anti-insect treatment?

That's what I wondered but it is actually just to designate these as pre-cut stud length which is 92 5/8 inch in length.

I am thinking about building a cabin and putting it on concrete pilings, there are some prefabs you can buy that have a cone shaped bottom that is under the ground. Do you think that would work well and last a long time? I was thinking if I put some rebarb in them and used some 25k pressure treated concrete they should hold up.

And this guy is da bomb.

Love Spencer's facemask. That's awesome. Looks like a fun ride. I have a friend on the ski patrol over there, and another friend used to be the Assistant Manager.

Got the drywall painted and the new lighting up. Then we moved most of the tools and tool chests back in. Doing a big sorting of stuff on the workbenches so excuse the mess! This a totally major change from the old unfinished garage!

I wanted a big flat screen TV but my wife only let me have the little 13 inch one that no one ever watches in our guest room...

Great clip Jim. Nice drywall Chris.

You don't want a flat screen in the garage. What if you were watching the ball game while using the saw or something?

I don't know. Just I'm trying to make you feel better.
