Garage Gets Extension on Life

Don't be fooled by the photo. My garage may look cutesy "ye olden tyme" rustic, but it's really a rotting dank shanty house that smells like burnt mouse heads, spent motor oil, and steaming cat shit. There was a time way back when I was considering pouring both the addition foundation and the new garage foundation at the same time, but I scrapped it for money and time reasons. It's common to break up the pours like that actually. Oftentimes because of space issues - can't always have two giant holes next to eachother or the diggers and trucks have no way to get into the back and nowhere to put all the fill. Mixers can't get back, so you have to have hire a pump to sit in the front yard and boom over the house, and that's another 700 bucks -- there can be a bunch of reasons. It varies job to job, of course. With me, I just don't have the lettuce to do both right now. I don't want to be in a situation where I can't afford a plasterer on the main house because the cash is tied up in the garage foundation, know what I mean?

I completely understand what you mean about the fine threshold between rustic charm and urgently in need of destruction!

Photos look pretty, and the 'bonus material' found in the house is exceedingly amusing.

You're talking about my basement, aren't you?

By the way, I'm going to be hanging out at your worksite, disguised as an engineer. Sometime next week.

Be warned.

Your garage looks a lot like my garage all hobbled together with partially rotted lumber, only my garage is far more rustic- no electricity and a ground hog living under the floor boards.

Burnt Mouse Heads are good for dipping in ranch. Delicious!

Now, when the wife complains about the state of my garage, I can just show her a picture of yours. That should give me an extra two months easy to get the floor in the workshop finished.

Keep posting!

Jay! Where is your HAND? We hate to have a photo with your HAND. Did something happen to it? If so, can you get someone to take a photo of your other?

P.S. I understand the steaming cat piss. But burned mouse heads? Did you leave them in too long. Use a timer. That's what I do.

Hilarious blog. Hey, your old fusebox reminds me-- a friend has an electrical contractor telling her to replace her old box because the breakers are odd and expensive. Ever heard of this?

holy burnt mouseheads! I swear that's a picture of MY garage! Mine is literally rotting from the ground up. The roof is also splitting at the peak. To top it off, it was built before setbacks, so it's right on the edge of the street. My neighbors love me. Whenever we get severe storm warnings, we run out and open the door, hoping the storm will lift it up and take it away!

A model wearing the Burberry outlet collection at once — all nine of the burberry scarf silk caftans in a rainbow of armani sunglasses, one on top of another — circled round and round the gucci sunglasses outlet. Each time she came around, the GHD IV Salon Styler designer and an assistant, both in white nurses' Moncler jackets, peeled off a layer and put Moncler coats onto another model, right in the middle of the coats & jackets.The models wore a white chiffon over their Woolrich to protect the beautiful bias-cut dresses in ruby, North Sails, citrus, mint and buff silk from Paul smith outlet.At the end of the show, the chiffon was covered in crimson kisses.
