Back in the saddle, bigger shop, Joat's comment at the end of your pic
Sounds all too familiar. In 2001, I bought the old rent house next
door ($4500, Gloat!), with visions of all of the above. In 2002, I
had a mild stroke. There went my dreaming. In 2004, I had 2 heart
attacks, further disabling my dreams.
I'm happy to report I've had a remarkable recovery. I work much
slower, these days, but I'm out there.
In the past year, the old rent house has slowly, but surely, taken
shape. I've removed all interior walls and installed beams with 10"
to 12" logs as supports.... 1060 sq ft inside, 10 X 24 enclosed garage
and 12 X 30 overhang (newly built) in the back. Two sets of double
doors accessing the overhang area. New siding on half of the
exterior. Hope to get siding on one more side before winter weather
gets here. It needs new roofing, especially since Gustav and Ike.
This week, I had a vision of hanging a porch swing under the
overhang... this winter, that southern sun will be nice shining there.
