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.
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.
It is going to be torture to smell this all day as we work.
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!!
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 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.
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!
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. ❄️
I’ve been on vacation. Blog posts were put on the back burner to fully enjoy my time off.
But…Another Pinterest recipe with a repetitive recipe. Onion rings and orange chicken.
Since I was already going to be frying the chicken, I decided to make some onion rings. The hubby has been craving onion rings for a while now.
I had high hopes for them. Since I’m picky about onion rings too.
I didn’t realize how much that would make…I cut up way too many. And I used sweet onions. It’s the bag that was opened in the cabinet.
Why does it always want to auto correct panko to Pablo…very annoying.
Yes. There is chocolate cake there too. The hubby wanted something chocolate at work the other day so I made some cake.
Don’t forget that the real dinner is orange chicken…
That’s only three chicken breast. I decided to do three so that there would be leftovers for the hubby’s next shifts.
But my sister gave me this thermometer for my birthday. This is my forever one!
The chicken will have to wait until the onion rings are done. I guess the onion rings are more of an appetizer to the orange chicken. Weird mix…
I turned to do something quickly. As I turned back to the cutting board I saw my baby climbing up towards it! I yelled for the hubby, and baby got startled and ran away. Better than her mess with raw chicken.
A rather sticky process but it is looking delicious!
The oil was heated to 350. It only took about 2min to completely cook the onion rings. They came out golden brown and crispy.
He devoured most of these onion rings. Haha! He said I’ve ruined another food for him. He will no longer be able to eat onion rings out. Mwahahahaha!
The hubby did feed my a couple bites as he eat the onion rings. I’m amazed…He shared his food. Haha
I don’t think I am going to be hungry for the orange chicken…
The oil was already filled with burnt panko crumbs from the onion rings. So occasionally as I pulled the chicken out I would get some burnt crumbs. Just some extra flavor!
I wish onion rings could be a meal!
The green beans must have been freezer burnt. None of us ate our greens. They were nasty.
It seemed never ending. But I decided to wait until after dinner to do the dishes. The hubby and baby would go watch a movie; while I do the dishes and listen to my book.
Look like photo: 10! They look identical to the picture. Crispy golden brown!
Taste: 10! The onion rings are awesome!! If I could rate it 1,000 I would!!!
Easiness: 9! I think because of the stickiness it is more difficult than fries, but the time quantity is way shorter than fries.
Overall… a definite yes to the recipe! Will try again soon. Maybe tomorrow! Also the cake gets a 10!
