One of our projects

I know that I told you last night that I would take pictures of the garage - before and after- well, I forgot. Dan and I started to work and the next thing I knew it was two hours later and I had not taken any pictures. I thought about taking some before I fixed lunch and then we got busy doing something and the next thing I knew it was after two and we had made great progress - so tomorrow I will show you pictures of the after - you just won't have any before pictures to compare it to.

One of the things that I was able to take pictures of is the next step we took in the laundry room. I had posted pictures of the laundry room with the new washer/dryer, but we were not finished with what we wanted to do in there. I wanted more storage - especially for some things that are just sorta bulky and don't fit well in the cabinets. So, Dan cut some boards down today - just to give us an idea of what it will look like when we get the right shelving and this is what we got ----

The picture above is taken from the kitchen door with the shelves on the left and the washer/dryer right in front of me. The picture below would be looking back toward the kitchen and I would be standing in front of the dryer.

This picture would be coming in the back door from the garage and looking straight ahead. Looks pretty good huh? I think it is really going to look good once we get the correct shelving up, but it will work for a little while. When we get other things finished up we will get the correct shelving, but it isn't a priority right now.

Now after supper tonight, Dan and I went for a boat ride - it was nice to relax a little after working hard all day. I did get a picture of the "big guy" that I thought you might like to see - hope you enjoy!

I'll post more tomorrow!


  1. WOW. The before and after pics are great - really show how much you have completed. I love the kitchen -may need to steal some of your ideas. Thanks for helping me to get back on the blog.

  2. So glad you were able to get to it! Hope you enjoy your trip - can't wait for you guys to get back and come see all the changes in person. Talk to you soon!
