Guess who has a super awesome husband who fixed their broken computer! :)
It's running pretty slowly, but it works! Makes me so happy, and fingers crossed it will limp along for another 6 months until I'm ready to buy a new computer. Sadly my Jamaica pictures didn't get backed up for some reason, although I still have them on my SD cards, just lost all of the time going through them and deleting duds so I can post a reasonable amount. So instead, I'm going to jump right into posting about our garage makeover plans!
I'm pretty excited about this next project too. Surprisingly, in fact. I mean, it's just a garage, how exciting can it be? But it's going to be so refreshing to not see unorganized piles of tools everywhere, and it means after we finish, I can finally start building all of the furniture I've been eying on Ana White's site!
This past weekend we didn't get much done, with my husband being laid up with a bum ankle. But that just meant I had lots of time to finalize our garage plans, make the 'to get' list, lay out the schedule (WBS to any project management nerds out there :) ) and go on an online shopping spree for the majority of what we need. It's looking like it will take us about 4 weeks to get everything done...yes, I know I'll be eating my words later, since house projects always take longer than expected. But I gotta start with a plan before it can go off track, haha! We're also looking at a budget of about $1500 + lumber for the workbenches, which actually is pretty good considering how much we're cramming in there.
But enough talk, let's see the plans! First, a look at the general floor plan, to see what we've got to work with:
Which currently looks like this. Complete chaos.
