Building Again!

We decided to build the garage/ shed at the end of our carport. We always seem to do big projects before winter comes. Last time it was the concrete work and the carport installation.

The garage is 8ft x 10ft x 10ft. As the hubby was framing it, I was inside eating lunch with the baby. She was being a troublemaker.

Our little helper wanted to help daddy move the wood.

It’s sweet when little kids want to help, but they make it more difficult. But as I’ve been told. It’s good to start them young; because then they will grow up helping.

Oh yes dinner…the hubby wanted to smoke some meat!

It is going to be torture to smell this all day as we work.

Not too bad…

I really didn’t help for this part. The hubby had his drawn plans, and just did his own thing. I just watched the baby. I felt really useless.

Can it be dinner time now? Nope. Still about 3 hrs to go.

I helped with the rafters. I handed them up to him, and he did all the hard stuff. I was pretty much just a pair of helping hands. Also maybe the mascot.

Meet got done around 5:30pm, but it still had to sit 30min before we could devour it! But back to the project…It gets dark around 6:45pm now. Because winter is coming.

The sweet thing decided to scout out daddy’s creation.

Sine she started dancing. I believe she approves.

I am sorry…I have no other pictures of the meat. I was too hungry to remember. But I can tell you…it was delicious!!

Day 2

Adding the black tar paper made the space feel bigger! Especially not in the sunshine.

This is going to make a huge improvement; also add value.

The overhang.

The space between the shed and garage is about 5ft. So with both overhang there is about 3ft of empty. We might stack wood here; under the garage overhang.

The roof!

I feel like putting the roof on was where I was most helpful!! The hubby was on the roof. I had to grab a sheet of plywood and hand it up to the hubby. I also had to do this process for the metal paneling. I felt so helpful! And the hubby said I made it a lot easier. Since he didn’t have to go up and down constantly. 😎

Having the roof down and some of the plywood siding done makes it look complete!

Finished!!

So seriously we built a garage , 10 x 8 x 10!, in less than 24hrs. 😎 I feel quite accomplished. But I also have great pride in my hubby!! He did amazing!

Now you shouldn’t be surprised, but we were able to fill the entirety of the garage and there is no more space. Haha! But after I reorganize it, and the hubby makes the shelf and his work table, it will look better.

Finally after a few years we actually have some storage space/ shop on our property!

Have a productive Wednesday. With my back still a little tweaked i will be having a safe, cold Wednesday. ❄️
