Nice job. I am up at the cabin putting down vinyl plank flooring and ceramic tile entrances. Tired of looking at the cement slab. Of course that means reconfiguring all the trim. Getting there. I had a insect guy spray the cabin outside, the smell was so bad for a month I had to stay away. I have not seen any bug life since then. Yesterday was a full day with out noticing any odor. Flooring is done now to clean up my mess. Did not pick many projects this year as I could not come to terms with the prices. The flooring this year ended up half of what it would have cost three years ago. Strange but during these times. I only work up till end of August then its happy time.

Don't forget a good hook up for hanging stuff in the new garage:) One of my garages before I insulated the roof I placed a full length of 2 inch square stock across the rafters. Every couple feet I welded a short piece that sticks downward through the ceiling that a d ring can be attached to. Has come in very handy for, game, engines, painting etc.

Wow !! Looks great. All I have done in the last 17 months is buy another gun safe. Buying guns before the nimrod makes that impossible. No projects for me. I don’t like work. I’m still mooching off the government. If he’s giving out free money … I’m taking it.

Just started casually looking for an antique car or truck for a restomod project. Something mid 30's to mid 50's vintage. Been doing work to the house when time and funds allow.

Sadly one needs real deep pockets now for even a builder
Hope you find something
Cheers
Meh...a body and chassis is all I need. I can deal with the rest.
