Welcome to Our Lumberyard!

Here it is folks...our life savings, all stacked up on our front lawn! I think that it's all there, with the exception of the metal roofing, doors, and windows.
His and Hers garage doors. My door is on the left.
Here's our first wall, complete with entrance door and window.
WATCH THAT FIRST STEP; IT'S A DOOZY! For 20 years, we've stepped through our shed door onto the ramp(that gray thing in the front, surrounded by weeds). For the last week, we've had to remember to step DOWN 12 inches, when exiting the shed. We'll all be happy when the footings have cured, and they lower the shed down again.
Our contractor's brother made this cool little ramp out of the leftover concrete.

I love the "his and hers" garage entrances. Do you get your own set of power tools?

Excitement is mounting Squirl!

Miranda, I told you guys that we live in the sticks!

Euro and VV, me too! It's been hot and muggy, which really releases all the wood smells.

Candace, hopefully we'll have it insulated by then.

Hi Fthink!! We also own 5-40'x 120' lots behind the garage. You'd think with all that land, it would be easy to place a garage...WRONG...setbacks are a bugger!!

Raven, just a garage. Thankfully, we have a nice snug house. I shudder to think of the work involved with building a whole house! ;)

Notta, we share the power tools, except for our cordless drills. I do have my own hammer and toolbelt though. ;)

Ah! I see you now as feeelthy reech landed Gentry, owning half of Rainier's available housing lots, how dare you plead poverty.
Sensible way to acquire retirement income. good luck with your building project.
