    IT is officailly opened for visitors as of April 1.

    Those who are in need of a rest area .. or are passing and
    need relief from the heat.. just give me a call /pm /text .

    Please follow a few simple rules (always rules).
    The garage is surrounded by my playground and you might
    hear them play. Healthy playing is good for every one.

    You are my guest but I expect you to clean up after yourself.
    Will have clean linens and towels. You make the bed and put dirty
    stuff in laundry bag and I will do the rest.

    NO SMOKING of any kind. Light drinking is fine.

    If I say you have to go for some reason .. you go.

    I'm planning a opening in late April around my birthday.

    Thanks for watching this build.

    I enjoyed watching the build. I don't think I'm too far away you either. I'm up in Troon North, off of Windy Walk. Next time I'm here for more than a few days, I'd like to come by and meet you and have a look. Job well done!

    I just read through from beginning to end. Really sweet place you have there. One question though, whatever happened to building a table around the tree? I didn't see one.

    Just read the area you are in. I just bought some property by Dixileta and 140th pl. I too will be building a man cave 2500sqft. I will try to keep pace with it on here once we start to break ground. Still in the drawing phases now. I'm looking forward to being up that way, I don't like where I'm living now.

    oh to live in a place where you can have space. I am lucky to have enough room for a simple two car garage where I live outside of NYC.
