That's fantastic! Doesn't even remotely look like the same garage.

The garage walls look like the Batcave's walls.

 

"I will insulate these and put drywall up", said Pete, moments before putting shelves right on the 2x4s to maximize how much interior space was used

In reply to Pete. (l33t FS) :

I'm totally putting shelves right onto the 2x4's between the posts.  I'm not insulating.  Keep the wind out and blow heat at the work area has always worked for me.  I've already figured out how to get rid of a couple cabinets that eat floor space by getting everything in them on shelves between the posts.  That's a lot of square footage freed up.  Same with my buckets of fabrication materials.  None of it will eat floor space anymore.

I didn't realize there was a big door in that side. In the back too?

In reply to mazdeuce - Seth :

No back door.  2 windows for light and cross ventilation.  There's an old paver patio out the big side door that i'll be able to set up on and work when i want to be outside.  Door is mostly for "oh crap x needs to go to the back on a trailer" and ventilation, not really for driving in and out of

Gotcha. That makes sense. I was wondering how you would have shelves/benches with that many doors. Carry on with your bad self.

Dropped the 2 trees that needed dropped.  Every year they leaned a little farther.  When we bought the house 11 years ago i needed an 8' step ladder to hang a swing on the lowest branch.  Now it was down to me being able to touch it with my feet flat on the ground.  It was going right at where the new garden is going, so it had to come down before i bother building the raised beds.

Dude it IS windy holy crap. 

I feel bad for the guy on the lift painting my house right now. I guess at least he's not on a ladder.

yeah it's stupid windy now.  I'm at the last 3.5ish feet to the peak where I need to get out the taller ladder and am smart enough to stop and not go higher right now.  
 

we have a fireplace and a wood burning supplemental furnace, but I have more than enough firewood, so my uncle is supposed to come chop up the trunk for his heating needs.  Have a pile of treated 2x6 for the garden beds

Because it couldn't wait 2 more weeks to die, the harbor freight tent tore down the peak in the wind today.  We just "fixed" it

Since it was cold and snowy we did some long overdue repairs inside.  Knocking out my to-do list a little more every day.

The biggest, tallest most muddy side is done.  
 


 

Side facing the house needs top cut row of siding done and 4 fascia coil pieces and coil garage door frame.  Front needs fascia coil and garage door frames coiled.  Mid front area siding and soffit next i guess, the wall between the lower roof and upper roof.  It's all angles.  Fun times
