Wondered if anyone would notice that... I'm lazy. Well, not so much lazy as I've got about 40 other projects going on and this one was low on the list. Caught a wild hair and decided to do something about it. You can't see it now with all the stuff on the shelf, and I do eventually plan on putting doors on the workbench.

I love that bench top. My brother in law dug it out of a metal dumpster where he worked and decided he didnt want it. I have a feeling it'll be around a LOT longer than me.

Diggin your paver patio. I've got plans for something like that out back. Might even happen in 10 er 15 years.

Took possession of a NEW MAN CASTLE!!! Well, more of a storage unit for now, and its only a rental.

A little hard to see cause the old renters just barely finished getting their junk out, but its a LARGE 2 car garage with a nice room off the back and a bit of a covered entrance.







Back room:



Supposedly its also wired for 220, so I can set up my tig welder here instead of at school.

Digging up a couple-weeks-old picture here because I just want to point out that, even though I haven't made it through the entire thread yet, it's safe to say Wobbleside's man castle is the only one with a bouncer.

Here's mine. Don't have any good shots of the outside, but it's the inside that counts

Needs some serious organizational work, especially in the back workshop area.

OK, so a final set of photos for the project, minus ladscaping.
Before:

After:








And just so you remember the front:
Before:

After:

Next, this weekend, we do some simple landscaping to clean it up, then we are done.
Overall cost, about $5400 materials, $3800 labor, and $2100 rock, sand, and machine rental.
Not bad for about 1350 square feet of coverage, and a retaining wall, plus drains.
