Missing My {Wo}Man Cave


The garage-workshop is starting to look great.

The drywall is all up, and my Dad and I will finish “mudding” it today… then paint this weekend!

There’s still a ton to do, and a few special things I’m hoping for {new pull-down attic ladder, washer, dryer, sink}.


It’s been weird not having my workshop though.


All my projects have been on hold while my table saw slowly rusts under a tarp in the back yard, and my tools are spread in piles throughout the house.

I’ll be inspired to do a project, and in my mind I reach for the tool off my pegboard tool storage book, and then… remember… that it’s somewhere in a pile in the guest room.


I think it’s making me a little depressed.  I was sick for 7 weeks too, with seriously sore ribs from coughing.  Now that I’m finally feeling better I’m ready to build and blog (and maybe clean… maybe ). 


More reason to hurry up and git’er done!

  5. Hello Christin

    Really love the pictures. Particularly like the frames and how each picture is angled to the side a little on your website, how do you do that? That tool rack on the last picture - is it a Rubbermaid or something else?

    Also, what drywall driver are you going to use / using? I use the Vermont American (model 16627 I believe) and it really gets the job done. I'd recommend it for your project.
