4 cases of pop, 4 cans of beer, a bottle of while and a case of water. The beer was purchased with the sole purpose of making beer can chicken

The Christmas tree stand was a "present" left by the previous owners, atop the sheet of plywood that was attached to the garage rafters. We have a "Freecycle" organization here and I just posted it to see if someone can use it, before taking it to the dump

Don't know what RainX costs in the USA but it's normally $5.00 a bottle here. Was on sale about a month ago for $2.50 each so we picked up 8 as we have two vehicles that use it. Hell regular windshield washer fluid is normally $3.00

Two tools every garage should have WD-40 for stuff that should move and doesn't and Duck Tape for stuff that moves and shouldn't

I'll probably buy a gallon can and a trigger spray bottle once I get more "settled" in.

I have 2 gallons of WD 40 and both of the plastic spray bottles they came with broke. Had to steal my wife's hairspray bottle

Update on the man castle in the making. All the wood came in yesterday. I got 2 piles of wood, one double door that opens to about 5 and 1/2 feet and the 2 vinyl windows. The outswing single door for the side is on back order for them. They said I should have it on thursday. I'm going to assume it'll be safe to frame a normal 32" by 80" door frame on that wall. It's a standard steel door.

I also picked up one of these last night after building the first wall.

It's got 3 different degree settings and will use a wide variety of nails. I figured this won't be the last time I build something, so I might as well go for it now. It uses all the way up to 10ga 3-1/2 nails on a plastic collator. I used to use one way back in the day when I did construction during the summers. I have a 25 gallon, 150psi , 6.5 hp compressor, so I should be able to run it fine.

Later I'll pick up a finishing nailer so I can do the interior work more quickly. Main things like cabinets and such. I'm stoked...

Updates... more work done last night...

here's some eye candy for you all. I got 2 walls completed. I have the third wall mostly completed. I'm doing this in the couples hours I have after work so I don't get a whole bunch done every night. The weekend will render the biggest updates hopefully. :)





It looks like i'm going to be cutting down some of the limbs on that tree near by. It's getting in the way more then I expected. Anyhow, I posted all the details over at http://marshalllogics.com/wpms/ . Best part is the 9 yr old helped out quite a bit more then I expected. Makes the whole project that much more fun.

Finally got my shop back together after a month of work.

- Cabinets moved to different wall
- Lift sunken into the floor
- Walls, ceiling & cabinets repainted
- New shelving built and painted

More changes coming for next year but for now it's done and it's time to get some winter projects started....

Nice color!! I like the Red!!! It's nice to see somthing other than white or no paint at all. The sunken lift is sweet too. If I ever own again I will have to look into doing something like myself!!!

Thanks. Reactions to the red have been mixed but I'm liking it. It will be slightly less shocking when I get some more stuff on the walls.

Like dirt. You could perform surgery in there. Blindingly clean.
