Working at my real job

Well the boom lift is at the “lift doctor.” So there wasn’t any work done on the house yesterday or today. Not sure when it will be released, but hopefully in a day or two.

Had to go to my real job, but have permission to take more time off when we get the lift back. In the meantime, Lynn worked a little on the post but will do more tomorrow. He is recovering from last week. I think I may have pushed him a little too hard.

So there isn’t much to report on today so this will be short.

Plans for the future are: Finish the East gable then the West gable, then the center over the front door. In between the times that Lynn will be doing the structural part, I will fancy things up a bit. I plan on painting the upper part of the shop and if time allows we will move to the side and eventually to the back.

We did finish up the back lower deck of the house earlier this summer. There is also a small upper deck that needs some attention. Oh my as I am writing this, even I am becoming overwhelmed. Nothing has been done inside yet.

Plans for the inside: We will have a master bath, two full baths in the upstairs and a half-bath by the back door. Three bedrooms upstairs and a large bonus room. First floor has a formal dining room, a country kitchen, family room, laundry room, master suite, living room and finally the library/office.

Hopefully, it will be ready by the time I retire.  Sooner I hope.  With Lynn already retired and hopefully I will in another 5 years, we could actually lose each other in this house, which may assist us both in surviving retirement.

Oh, I forgot, his shop is every mans dream.  I believe that he owns most of the power tools that Sears has produced.  I should have bought stock in Sears years ago knowing they had customers like him.  He has a compound miter saw that I bought for him about 5 years ago, and it is still in the box!!

If you had noticed from the photos, his shop has a second story.  Well right now that is storage, but the future plan is a model railroad room.  Lynn still has many model trains he had when he was a boy and various model railroad stuff he has acquired through the years.  (He boarders or being a ‘hoarder’).  Hmm that rhymes.

Well, I just got carried away.  I told you this would be short.  So I will post more as the week moves along.
