Garage ~ Before and After

Through the seasons here is what our garage/shop looks like from the house.

Since it will be quite a while until we are able to re-side the garage, we decided to paint it the same color of our house. There still is 1/2 of our house that needs new siding and to be painted, too.

Last week Dear finished the side of the garage that faces my kitchen window.

On the morning of the 4th the wall was dry and ready for the new metal art to go up.

We’re enjoying the new view from our kitchen window when we look out at the garage. This weekend more painting is on the schedule and the weather is cooperating.

What Dear Did On His Summer Vacation ~


Dear’s company shuts down the week of July 4th so this was a free week off for him. While in Washington he was very busy cleaning out our garage. He and our son Dan took 700 lbs. of junk stuff to the dump. They cleared out and reorganized the garage.  For the first time since we’ve lived in this house we can park 3 cars in our upper garage.


Beautiful! Now this next collage shows you our Toyota Car Museum.


When my car goes back to California in August our son’s truck will take over my spot and our garage will become more diversified since his truck is a Ford.

Below this Garage is a shop where 3 vehicles that are being worked on are stored and a few motorcycles. Makes me feel a little better about all the dishes I own. Not that it’s a competition or anything…

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.
