Congrats on reaching the finish line. I guess it's time for me to start packing up my shop...

You got to be happy Bill....almost just about practically nearly in there now!
I look forward to seeing the new improved super-duty Garage Mahal when you get your toys moved in.

RSG--

After? Hopefully, there never will be an after!

My current big project is clearing the smaller trees between the view and the road on the south side a little over a thousand feet long. I've already done a stretch on the north side of the road, but only about half as long. (The view there is just more forest.)

Of course, I have a huge amount of landscaping to do around the house; some on the east side with the majority on the west, or front side: Decorative stuff made mostly from native rock; sitting areas, fire pit, and a decorative pond that will serve as a source of water for fire prevention.

After we close, the big thing will be building another full bath (#5) in the garage, a laundry room and most important of all, my shop! I'll start another thread concerning the shop . . . I'll need all the help I can get.

Really great, Bill. Maybe you look at the shop over at P.M. "Antique Machinery" posted recently. It is a wonder of work. "I" beams placed across load bearing posts. Double duty as it supports the structure while able to move heavy machinery via trolley hoists.
